This article will give you the inspiration you need to revamp your living space, garden, and self; an all-round eco-friendly ‘spring clean’. 



Spring is the perfect time to change up your outdoor space, the change in weather brings a multitude of new design and growth opportunities for your garden. This Strawberry tree is perfect for just that, as a plant that loves sun its glossy leaves will add some shine to your garden. It’s a small tidy evergreen, suitable for even the smallest of spaces. Even if you’re planting this Strawberry tree to mark a fresh start, it even looks beautiful all year round growing white “heatherbell” flowers in autumn.

The Magnolia tree is one of the earliest to bloom in spring, meaning you can get a head start your ‘spring clean’. The Mangnolia tree gift is hardy and can be kept in containers in a sunny sheltered space in the garden. The Buds open into beautiful fragrant star shaped white flowers once spring has sprung.

Another seasonal delight from our growing range is the shitake mushroom log kit, it has a slightly nutty flavour and fruits in nine to eighteen months. It crops in Spring & Summer. The kits come equipped with everything you need to grow your new mushroom crop. Packed in a fair-trade jute bag, it contains a packet of 30 spawn plugs, an easy-to-follow set of instructions and a correct size of drill.

As the days begin to draw longer, your outdoor living space will become the centre of alfresco dining and entertaining with friends. Enjoy a drink outside with the Yala Wine Glass, a stylish and handmade wine glass made of 100% recycled glass. They are sturdy, so they’re more than capable of withstanding spring and summer outdoor drinking sessions, whilst also dish washable for a quick clean up. They are the hosting essential!

Grouped together they can create a great feature piece for your living room, the perfect focal point to change it up and of course made from recycled materials. 


Although these can be used outdoors, the Sia Nkuku Lantern is so versatile it can also be used indoors to create a beautiful silhouette. These elegant black metal lanterns make a beautiful statement piece to accompany the Kiko Photo Frames and are available in a choice of three sizes.
