East London Parasol
The perfect garden wouldn’t be complete without a parasol, and for every parasol sold we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree in India or Indonesia. We have a variety in stock for delivery in time for Christmas, but if you order a gift voucher or pre-order a parasol which is out of stock we will send a card and beautiful red tassel to open on the day.
Our parasols are all handmade in the UK, India or Indonesia, we avoid plastics and use sustainable woods in our production, such as durian, bamboo and FSC certified ash wood.

Trugs are a traditional style of garden basket with a 200 year old heritage. The Truggery was founded in 1899 and their shop and workshop are on the edge of Herstmonceaux in East Sussex. They’re made from native local materials, young coppiced sweet chestnut, clefts of willow and a coat of linseed oil. Not only is a trug a timeless tradition, the coppiced woodlands are a valuable environment for local flora and fauna.

Wildflower habitats are where bees and butterflies make their lives, and with 97% of native British Wildflower habitat lost since World War 2 - it’s more important than ever that we do what we can to preserve it. Beebombs are a fantastic way to get the whole family involved in restoring the Bees native plants and require no gardening skills. We’ve added the Natice Wildflower Beebomb, which is handmade from sheltering local clay and is packed with over 1000 native seeds (almost all are on the RHS ‘Perfect Pollinators list). We want to join Beebomb and help bring the bees back to Britain.
1 pack of Native wildflower Beebombs, Beebombs, £7.99
