Homebase Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Homebase is partnering with award-winning garden designer Adam Frost to create the Homebase Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The retailer hopes to win a hat trick of gold medals by designing an ornamental, wildlife-friendly garden with stone and water. To help people enjoy their space, Homebase sells a wide range of plants, garden equipment, and accessories.
Homebase’s garden sales increased by 80% in the past 12 months.
DIY and garden chain Homebase has launched its spring gardening report and is offering a free trial membership to Horticulture Week. The report claims that despite the current economic climate, garden sales in the UK are up 80% over the last year. The retailer has also announced opening garden centers in six Next stores across the country on 12 April.
Last year, Wesfarmers acquired the business for PS340 million, and it is thought that the group is looking to get more for it. The company is also considering a voluntary company arrangement (CVA) – a process that has helped the New Look Group dump loss-making stores. However, it is unclear whether it will pursue a CVA, a method that retailers commonly use to exit a failing business.
It has opened new plots in six Next stores.
Homebase has struck a deal with Next to open new garden centers inside Next stores across the UK. From Monday, the stores will feature plants, pots, and gardening tools, and staff will offer expert gardening advice. The stores also have an app where customers can scan barcodes to find what they are looking for.
The retailer has also seen increased sales on its DIY advice pages. The number of people buying cushions, paint, and other garden accessories increased by eighty percent. The retailer also noticed an increased interest in biodiverse gardening. It found that bee-friendly plants made up 10% of all plant sales.
It has an insect hotel.
Insect hotels are a great way to attract various insects and help your garden thrive. Not only will the insects benefit your plants, but they can also help pollinate your crops. So whether you’re looking for a fun way to attract bees or an easy way to attract butterflies, an insect hotel can be a great addition to your garden.
Insect hotels can be made from bamboo or reeds, although they must be cut in a specific way to allow the insects to enter. You can add items from elderberry, rose, or blackberry shoots to your insect hotel to attract even more creatures. Unfortunately, insect hotels can also attract parasitic insects, such as cuckoo bees, which lay their eggs inside other insects’ nests.
It has a modernist building.
Homebase has created an urban garden with the help of modernist materials and geometric shapes, blending urbanity with nature. This garden has a strong architectural form that combines linear concrete walls and geometric hedging. The design also breaks up the space into defined lawn and water areas.
Homebase’s design is based on the ideas of Naked Gardener Ian Pollard, who also enjoyed a brief career as an architect and developer. The Egyptian-styled building, built between 1988 and 1990 in Kensington, was designed to evoke human creativity’s timeless, progressive evolution. It also uses a new wildflower turf mix for its roof.
It sells high-quality garden furniture.
If you want to invest in quality garden furniture at an affordable price, Homebase garden is a great place to start. The company sells everything from benches and tables to outdoor fire pits and bistros. They also offer home delivery services. You can also find some good deals on garden furniture at Argos.
Homebase garden sells garden furniture in various materials, including rattan, metal, and wooden options. You can even use Click & Collect to collect your purchase or opt to have it delivered right to your door. There are also numerous online marketplaces where you can buy and sell garden furniture.
Homebase garden is one of the UK’s most famous garden furniture retailers. Their collections are stylish, high-quality, and reasonably priced, and their customers continue to return for new items.
