To help green fingered Brits who are keen to take part, Peter Hardie, Senior Gardening Buyer for wilko, has offered some advice on which products instore may prove most useful as they begin to tackle their project.

Peter, comments: "Our customers are enjoying the great outdoors now more than ever before, and this last year has shown us just how valuable green space is to us all, whatever its size or scale. wilko shoppers’ gardens range in scale from large plots and allotments to balconies, back yards and windows boxes – and everything inbetween, which is why creating products for all manner of gardening jobs, and all levels of expertise, is so important to us.

“If you’re a seasoned gardener and interested in potting and planting, or even growing your own veg, we have an array of different pots, composts, seeds, bulbs and tools to help. The space saving Clever Pots range in particular is great for keen gardeners, as are the clever range of accessories that work with them such as plant pot feet, wheels and reservoirs that make light work of heavy duty garden tasks.=

“Or for those less versed in gardening, but still keen to enjoy time outdoors, consider some garden decoration accessories to help bring your space to life. We’d recommend adding a couple of vibrant scatter cushions alongside some twinkling outdoor lights to create a welcoming atmosphere for garden guests this summer.”
