Burgon & Ball have sent me the perfect Christmas present – a very smart Kneelo kneeling pad. I will use it indoors until the weather improves. I’m now allowed to kneel on my fractured knee, but additional padding is essential and the neoprene Kneelo is just the job. It might even make me look less like a newborn giraffe when I try to stand back up! And watch for the recycled red bow in the Mistletoe post.
Most Christmas tree skirts lack any style, but these woven ones from The Garden Centre Group are really rather attractive. They are available from selected garden centres (best to ring your local one and check) and cost £19.99 for the medium and £29.99 for large.
If you save seed from your garden Burgon & Ball’s set of 5 Seed Savers (£6.95) will provide the perfect containers if you want to spread the love (-in-the-mist) among your friends this Christmas – or any other seeds for that matter. Alternatively, the set would make a welcome present for a gardening friend.
What gardener wouldn’t love these tea towels with their fabulous vegetable illustrations? They are available from Lush Designs at £11 each www.lushlampshades.co.uk
