2. Feline pot
To grow a basic kitchen herb garden start with a few pots. Did you know that herbs need a full sun position as it is there that the essential oils develop? Made from quality porcelain and featuring a cute cat face design, this planter will have you ‘feline’ good in your garden
3. Herb scissors
To optimize the growth of your herbs, prune your herbs continually-which really means using them all the time. This way they stay thick and bushy and don’t get straggly. Use this pair of herb scissors which is made of stainless steel, for a more precise cut.
4. Gardening gloves
Nasty bacteria and fungi can be found in soils especially if animal manure and compost are used. If bacteria enters through a cut on your hands, it could lead to an infection which could have been easily avoided. By using a pair of gloves, you can protect your hands from the dirt and splinters as well.
5. Trowel and fork
Bare wooden handles benefit from boiled linseed oil. Rub the oil on with a rag and allow the wood to absorb the first coat before applying more oil. This prevents drying out and splintering. Designed by Irish contemporary designer, Orla Kiely, this painted stainless steel trowel with wooden handle and leather strap is both functional and decorative.
6. Self-watering plant device
The terracotta tail of the bird is fixed into the pot to direct the water straight to the roots without touching the leaves of the plant.This is perfect for short vacations when you can’t find anybody to help water your plants while you are away.
7. Plant tie
This is a useful tool to have on hand if a plant needs to be safely tied back to a support stake, trellis or just be out of your way while you work. It’s easy to adjust and will stretch with your trees and plants as they grow. Rot-proof and self-locking, it is also reusable.
8. Cutting globe
Why not make propagating even easier with a PVC cutting globe? Simply attach it to a branch of a plant and roots will form inside the ball. When a good-sized root ball has formed, snip the branch off and plant.
9. Gardening apron
This gardening apron is water repellent but still soft and breathable, making it comfortable to wear while you go about pruning your garden. The handy pocket also allows you to put your gardening tools for easy reach.
