Celebrate National Gardening Week and Make the Most of May


Get ready to roll up your sleeves and embrace the great outdoors, as May brings with it National Gardening Week and three bank holidays. Read on for inspiration for getting your garden looking gorgeous for the coronation.

May is a great time of year to get out in the garden because the weather is usually mild and there are plenty of daylight hours to get things done. This year, we have the added bonus of three bank holidays in May, which gives us even more time to spend in the garden. There are many things happening in UK gardens during this month, from planting and pruning to wildlife watching and garden events.

The month kicks off with National Gardening Week, an annual celebration of gardening that takes place every year which helps raise awareness of the difference that gardens and gardening can make to people in the UK. The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is one of the organizations leading the charge when it comes to National Gardening Week. This year, they are encouraging everyone to create colourful containers which are inspired by the coronation of King Charles II.

Here at The Garden Trellis Co, we're proud to be part of the gardening community and to support National Gardening Week. Our Prestige trellis, fencing, and gates are endorsed by the RHS, so you can be sure that you're getting a product that meets the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship.

Our Prestige products are made from sustainably sourced timber, they are handcrafted in our Essex workshop and are designed to be both beautiful and practical. The Prestige range includes many other products which match the quality and style of the products which are endorsed by the RHS. This includes our Prestige planters which come in a range of sizes and styles. One of the best things about investing in our high-quality Prestige planters is that if you move house, you can take them with you, meaning you don’t have to leave your beloved creations behind. They also allow for raised planting options in small spaces and help divide up larger gardens.

Creating a beautiful coronation planter is a great way to mark this historic occasion and to celebrate the beauty of your garden. Whether you choose to plant colourful flowers, fragrant herbs, or use them underneath trellis for planting climbers, a well-designed planter can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any outdoor space. As well as choosing colourful planting, you can also make your containers colourful by choosing one of our ten pre-painted colour options. Order a colour sample here to help make your choice >

Meanwhile in early May, many of our landscaping and garden designer clients are busy preparing for RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Whether you’re an experienced gardening professional or a complete beginner, National Gardening Week is a great time to be inspired to learn new skills, try out new techniques, and create a beautiful outdoor space that you can enjoy all summer long.

So, whether you're planting flowers, planning your hard landscaping, or simply enjoying the sunshine, we hope you'll take some time this National Gardening Week to get out into the garden and connect with nature. With the three bank holidays in May, there's no excuse not to get started on your gardening projects. And if you're looking for high-quality garden products, look no further than The Garden Trellis Co.
