And just as we hit September and brace ourselves for the cooler Autumn…we get a mini heatwave! I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the British Seasons…they change every year!
We need to make the most of this unseasonal weather and eke out the last few weeks of garden time – and what better way to do that than with some new garden accessories. If you’ve been busy all Summer, now is the time to create a lovely outdoor space for some September al fresco dining, late Summer barbeque’s, or simply basking in the sunshine (a matter of weeks before Halloween!).
Shabby chic and replica antique garden accessories are still bang on trend for this season and there’s still plenty of demand for quirky pieces and vintage items. Fans of vintage furniture and accessories for inside their homes are looking to replicate the look on the outside too.
A vintage garden is actually quite easy to achieve. You are allowed to mismatch, clash and have stuff that looks loved – there’s no uniformity or palette matching here! We all know that traditional garden furniture can be a bit boring, so a vintage garden is a refreshing change.
If you are looking for garden accessories, then take a look at The Orchard’s website – a vintage inspired homeware and gift online boutique – and see what vintage treasures you can find for your garden.
