Spring has well and truly arrived and everyone here at Bulldog Tools is very excited for the coming season and all it will bring. A lot has been going on in recent weeks, so here’s some more Bulldog news to keep you informed about what we’re doing.
New Pedigree Range Launched
We are very proud to announce the launch of an exciting new range of Bulldog gardening tools at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show next week. The range called Pedigree is a new generation of tools which combine design and elegance with performance and strength. Features include stainless steel heads, strapped sockets for durability, traditional capped ash YD handles and treads to save gardener’s boots. There will be more information coming to this page soon, but in the meantime please visit the dedicated Pedigree website at: www.pedigreegarden.co.uk – tools that look great and perform great too!
Once again Bulldog Tools were happy to support The Big Dig community gardening day on Saturday 16th April. The project is designed to help local community gardens prepare for the growing season and attracts volunteers from a variety of ages, locations and with differing horticultural abilities! To try and make the day even more exciting we ran a competition to reward those groups with the most innovative ideas with some free Bulldog Tools and would like to congratulate Hopcroft Railway Garden, Riverbank Community Garden, Cranbrook Community Food Garden, Wilton Estate Community Garden and Emerge Garden New Smithfield Market who were all winners.
York Gate Garden
Bulldog Tools were very proud to supply the volunteer gardeners of the York Gate Garden with a range of our garden tools to help them carry out their work in this garden of distinction. The new garden has been completely restored by the Perennial charity and was opened to the public on Easter Sunday by Jim Buttress, Perennial Vice President – who is pictured (by Jonathan Ward) with Head Gardener Adam Bowley and one of our Premier digging spades. You can find out more about this garden here.
Tips for May
As our gardens begin to burst into flower and the hard work of the winter months begins to pay off, don’t forget to visit our gardening tips page for the month of May on the Bulldog Tools Garden Club on Facebook. This month’s tips include sowing beetroot, main crop carrots, autumn cabbage, peas, swiss chard, radish, lettuce and spring onions, tie in the new growths of climbers and wall shrubs and planting dahlias, frost tender vegetables and sweet peas that have been started under glass. You can see these tips and more here.
Chelsea Flower Show
Finally, please don’t forget to come and see us at the Chelsea Flower Show next week if you’re going to be there. The show runs from 24th – 28th May for RHS members and the general public at the beautiful Royal Hospital in London. For more details, please visit: www.rhs.org.uk/shows-events/rhs-chelsea-flower-show
