Bright, affordable British products to encourage youngsters to get growing
Wandering around Glee (the UK’s huge gardening and outdoor living exhibition, not the programme) this year, one stand, in particular, caught my eye – Briers.
They’re a British-based family firm which specialises in gloves, boots and gardening accessories but it was their children’s range that I liked best.
Brightly coloured unisex wellies, gloves, seats, tools and toys, even a play house and paint your own gnome set will really encourage kids to get stuck in – and they’re all very affordable.
This is just a taste of the range – my favourites:
