Happy New Year

Happy New Year from the OUshop team!

With February just around the corner, we are starting to think about our gardens and what will be going into our veg beds this year. Last year I took the plunge and changed my flowerbeds into two long raised beds in which, amongst other things, I grew tomatoes, courgettes, runner beans and onions.

Because of this new passion, I was excited to discover that the shop had a gardening section when I joined the team last year. Inspired by the Botanic Garden, we have added more products to the site and created a capsule range that has some of the basics you need to get started, along with some fine finishes. I already have my eye on the pot tamper and the beautiful cane finial, as well as the ever essential seedling labels.

Keen to encourage the young gardener, we also have some products available for children here too.

I am now halfway through my planning, but I have added a new challenge to my garden  repertoire this year in the form of the elusive snake's head fritillary.

 All is quiet on that front so far, but I have high hopes for some  blooms in March.

In the meantime I will get back to planning the rest of my beds and coveting the items mentioned above.

If you have any suggestions for more essential items we should add then let us know
