Giving your garden a summer makeover needn’t cost the earth.
There are many items on the market to create the perfect outdoor haven this summer with minimal effort and cost.
From balconies to window boxes, large lawns to small, we’ve rounded up a fantastic selection of great value products perfect to give any outdoor space a boost.
With a little help from wilko’s Senior Technologist, Sam, here are five of the best gardening items available this summer – all costing just £5 or less.
1. wilko aubergine drain pipe pot holder – £2.50
For those with a small outdoor space, it’s never been easier to inject colour into tight garden corners.
The wilko aubergine drain pipe pot holder helps utilise all the space you have, no matter the size of your garden.
Sam says: “It effortlessly attaches to most round drainpipes (68mm) and with a matching plant pot (sold separately and seen below), allows you to grow your favourite herbs or flowers right outside your back door, no garden needed!”
Available in aubergine, seen here, along with black and green, it’s perfect for developing flowers and herbs.
It’s also the ideal for making the most of the space you have. Even if you have a small garden or courtyard, all you need is a drainpipe and you can add some plants to brighten up your outdoor space.
Giving your outdoor space ‘that summer feeling’ can often be achieved through subtle detail.
This bright 20cm aubergine round bell planter is the perfect addition to your outdoor space for a pop of colour – not to mention, affordable!
Sam says: “It will make a beautiful feature in any garden, and is perfect for a variety of plants including flowers, herbs and veg.”
You can also mix and match – the product is available in black and green and aubergine.
3. wilko hanging plant pot – £5 each
Brighten up your fence or balcony with this innovative hanging pot that will keep your plants looking luscious and healthy without the fuss!
Sam says: “With a small reservoir in the bottom of the hanging pot, you won’t have to water your plant as often as it will be able to take up water as and when needed.”
We all get busy… which is why hassle-free options to transform your garden are such a hot ticket item!
This olive green self-watering planter from wilko will revolutionise your garden maintenance routine and help keep your plants healthy, when regular watering isn’t possible.
Sam says: “It has an insert tray that creates a reservoir below for your plant, meaning you won’t have to water your plant as often.”
5. wilko garden colour exterior paint – now £4*, was £8
There’s nothing quite like a fresh lick of paint to bring life to your outdoor space.
wilko garden colour is a top pick – with lasting colour that dries in just two hours. Plus, it’s on offer for half price* and available in 12 different colours.
Sam says: “Our garden colour has been specially developed to transform planed and rough sawn garden timber and provide all weather protection. It’s based upon a tough water based formulation and contains pigments and waxes to resist ultraviolet and water attack.”
