I have started the new gardening season off with using the National Trust garden fork by Burgon and Ball and what a treat it is. This stylish vintage-looking high-carbon steel garden fork is solid and robust. I am smitten with the textured powder coating which adorns the fork shaft; from an aesthetics point-of-view it provides a highly attractive antique bronze look, never mind the practicalities that it actually protects against corrosion.
Foxgloves are the epitome of English country gardens. They conjure up thoughts of warm summer days, afternoon tea and the sound of plump bumble bees buzzing from flower to flower gleefully gorging on nature’s banquet. I was invited to write this article for Fagus Gardening Club's Fagus Times issue No 15. Discover the diverse world of foxgloves.
