Time to Get Out Your Garden Ladder?

Time for Garden Ladders?Early last year many of us were looking out at our flooded gardens, wondering whether we'd ever be able to salvage the lawn and put things right again.  A year on and no doubt there is still some work to be done, but most people have managed to fix a lot of the flood damage already.  This year we can start to build on that progress and get our gardens ready for the spring and summer months. Orchard Ladders The months of January and February typically see the coldest weather of the year, so there is not a lot that can be done in terms of planting out, but you can still get garlic and onions ready in pots to transfer outdoors when the weather gets warmer.

If that was not enough of a riddle for you, it also features more than one moving or adjustable part, but is designed specifically for a job whic...
