Innovative solutions for grow-your-own gardeners
It’s great to see a gardening products website that’s easy to use and navigate, making it a doddle to find what you’re looking for and the new GardenSkill site is just that.
In case you don’t know, GardenSkill is a British-based family company which started in 2009 with the Build-a-Ball fruit cage system.
The firm has grown to become the UK’s largest supplier of pop-up garden products including fruit and veg cages, cloches and tunnels, along with innovative raised beds, gloves, netting, hand tools, pest control treatments and much more.
Many of the products developed by GardenSkill are the brainchild of its founder, keen gardener and engineer Brooke Davis (you can read more about his inventions here).
Understanding gardening problems
After a good chat with Brooke’s son Simon at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show, it’s reassuring to know that the family really understands the problems ordinary gardeners face with pests, the great British weather.
Crop protection and raised beds are very reasonably priced, so the gardener with not much spare cash isn’t priced out of the market.
There’s also an eco-friendly range of slug deterrents, organic lawn treatments and weed control.
The site also has lots of information – the Grow Your Own Expert section offers advice on fruit beds, raised beds, cloches and polytunnels.
A seasonal planner and growing guide are to be added in the future, as well as more blog posts.
There are instructional videos to help you out and if you really don’t like shopping online, you can either download the catalogue as a pdf or GardenSkill will send one out to you in the post.
On that note, if you don’t like ordering online, you can do so by phone on 01902 725 055.
All in all, www.gardenskill.com is well worth a look if you’re growing your own crops this year.
