Post-Chelsea garden accessory suggestions

Following the conclusion of the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show, sector commentator Bunny Guinness has identified a range of garden accessories that were on display at the event that could brighten up any green space.

A wide range of furniture, ranging from hanging chairs and benches to all-weather wicker-effect seating and even metal tables, chairs and arches were on show and would look great in gardens, she writes in the online pages of the Daily Telegraph.

She notes that horticultural enthusiasts may be inspired by sculptures that were on display, noting that slate pieces looked particularly effective.

Concluding, Ms Guinness suggests that sundries such as a twister – a spiral wire support that can be used to provide a structure for plants such as clematis or tomatoes – could provide help for horticultural enthusiasts.

Meanwhile, Lucy Hall, deputy editor of BBC Gardeners World Magazine, recently identified water features as todays "must-have" item for green spaces.
