With more time spent plotting in the garden this year, than ever before, we’ve all had to make creative use of our green spaces. And with friends and family now able to meet up on a patio or lawn, we’re getting together for birthdays, baby showers or simply just for a cup of coffee. But rather than bringing round a bottle of bubbly or some edible treats, why not present them with a gift that pays homage to their pastime? After all, it is National Gardening Week (26 Apr – 2 May).

From watering cans, to serving jugs, outdoor lighting and creative storage, here are a few ideas to let the budget-friendly buying begin…
