Cute garden bits if you’re planning on sprucing up your outdoor patch

These tools and accessories will help you get your garden in shape.

There’s nothing like a sunny weekend to make you want to get your outdoor space in order, ready to enjoy warm afternoons and al fresco dinners. Whether you’re particularly green-fingered, and are planning your beds carefully, or just want to tidy up the weeds, it’s a great chance to tackle the jobs on your list. 

If your gardening toolkit has some gaps, or perhaps you want to replace some pieces that are looking worse for wear, we’ve rounded up some accessories that will come in useful as you spruce up your space.

Potting

From potting out seedlings to planting up containers for your patio, it’s handy to have the right tools for the job.

Pruning unruly shrubs, seeking out weeds before they get established, and tying climbers up to guide their growth are all tasks worth tackling sooner than later.

Accessories

Whether it’s decorative edging for a border, a basket to carry veg or cut flowers, or just some trusty wellies to trudge around in, little extras can make a big difference when you’re working on the garden.
