Spring Equinox is almost here!

With the days getting longer and spring just around the corner, our thoughts can once again return to our gardens and we can look forward to enjoying our outdoor space once again.

As you begin the tasks of weeding, planting and replanting, why not think about treating yourself with some new garden features – something unusual and a bit different to the normal!

I’ve always loved architectural salvage and have seen these items as a great source of unusual features for the garden. Whether it’s using a simple gate to break up different areas of garden or providing a backdrop for some climbing plants, the unusual and often ‘quirky’ items create a real point of difference. Also, for example, old milk churns make great stools for outside bars – really hardwearing and can be left out in all weathers!

Take the opportunity to look through what we have on offer and if you’d like any more information, please get in touch.



It’s challenging to bring these items into the Malt House but now with the web site up and very much running, we can showcase these in a different way. Due to the weight of some of these items, they’re available for Click and Collect only – although there may be some opportunities for local delivery. Again, please get in touch if you have any questions.

I hope that you like these items as much as I do – they allow for a real creative element to any garden of any size.
