Weeding is one of the most disliked, yet essential gardening tasks every gardener faces. Kent & Stowe has developed a comprehensive range of stainless steel weeding tools to tackle even the most laborious of tasks. The range covers everything from intricate hand weeding to long handled multi-functional weeding and traditional hoes. All tools have been designed with comfort in mind to ensure weeding is an effective and simple task.
The 2018 gardening season has certainly been one to remember. At the start of the year the question on everyone’s mind was ‘When is it going to stop raining’.Then it did stop and summer arrived but the worry was how long the good weather was going to last. However, the sun just keeps on shining and here we are at the beginning of November and the leaves are still on the trees.
There were predictions of an early Autumn, but summer just wouldn’t let go, sogarden centres are ready for Christmas and consumers still enjoying lovely warm days. Things are now about to change with temperatures dropping to more seasonal norms and Autumn and Christmas ready for lift off.
The Kent & Stowe ‘Dig for Victory’ Gift and Christmas range really captured the imagination of visitors to GLEE 2018. The life-size wartime bunker and memorabilia plus the representative from Imperial War Museums dressed in authentic clothing was the centre piece of this evocative re-creation. Ration books, newspapers of the day plus everyday household articles re-captured the feeling of these moments from WW2.
Kent & Stowe is an established and well-respected player in the garden tools market. As part of Westland Horticulture, they have benefited from major investment in new product development, resulting in market leading equipment which has generated incremental sales in key market sectors.
Summer 2018 is certainly one to remember! There has been hot sunshine for week after week. Lots of people have been out enjoying the beautiful weather. But what about the gardens? Lawns all brown and dried up, leaves already falling and summer bedding is dying early.

Autumn will come early this year for retailers and Crest Garden has an autumn promotion to cover all consumer needs to prepare their gardens for the season ahead. The range is available for immediate delivery
Cutting is an important task for the autumn and Kent & Stowe covers it all from hedge shears and secateurs to, saws and loppers.
