Trellis, arches, shelving, the Aqua Tower and wooden barrel kits
VegTrug is always a stopping point for me at Glee (Garden, Leisure, Equipment Exhibition). Starting out with their trademark wooden waist-height raised bed, the business has diversified into many innovative products. Here is what caught my eye this year…
New for 2020 is the Windsor Aqua Tower, a basket on a metal stand or spike at different heights, both with a built-in reservoir and coir liner. The Windsor Aqua Tower Basket Stand small costs £19.99, large £24.99 and the basket on a spike retails at £29.99.
Also making its first appearance is the Slimline Windsor trellis range, which comes in a four-piece slot together kit (Flat, £149.99). My favourite was the Slimline Arch Half (£69.99), which can be fitted to a wall over a narrow path and has a footplate to hold it steady. Also new is the stunning Osaka Garden Arch, £149.99.
There is a host of plant stands in the Gallery Collection, both modern and traditional, and equally at home inside and out.

Finally, there are the easily assembled FSC wooden barrel kits, making transportation easy without compromising on quality or style, as they come in six fashionable colours and two sizes, both with a plastic base to prevent rotting and allowing good drainage. Small kits, 37cm diameter cost £24.99, medium at 46cm cost £29.99.
