Today is officially the first day of Spring and the new season is upon us and we look forward to longer days and sunnier times ahead – no mention of the “C” word here..!
We cannot wait to get out into our garden again and get planting, with the help of our pooch, Bailey, the boxer.
We wanted to share some of our vintage outdoor pieces that are now online, allowing you to get creative with different shapes, form and colour.
Have a look below and let us know what you think!
This vintage 3 tier etagere was sourced from France and is the perfect way to add a bit of dramatic effect to your outdoor space.
Add vintage terracotta pots filled with Spring bulbs, herbs and decorative vintage pieces, like this old watering can.
These vintage wooden moulds were once used in India to make clay bricks!
We love the fact that today, they can be repurposed and used as a planter on a windowsill to grow herbs, or bulbs.
Apart from growing herbs, March is the time to start sewing seeds to grow flowers and vegetables, if you have the space. The Unconventional Gardener blog, shares with you what can be sewn this month.
Vintage watering cans look great nestled among bushes or pots as decorative pieces, but are practical and functional too.
Find one with the rose still attached, so that you can give your plants a fine spray of water, without damaging them.
We love finding products that can be repurposed!
This vintage cast iron cattle water drinker is perfect for small Spring bulbs and makes for an interesting talking point in your outdoor space.

The air slats around the basket allowed the olives to breathe and now, once planted, will allow water to drain away.
This piece would be a great for the urban gardener!

Sadly, we have had to cancel our Spring pop up event in a railway arch in Camberwell, but hope to have another, just as soon as we can.
