  • Aerated Polythene is Ripening for Success

    Eco Green Advanced Plant Protection from HaxnicksA unique new fabric from Haxnicks – EcoGreen™ Aerated Polythene – helps gardeners to achieve fully ripened garden produce without the aid of a greenhouse.

    Growing ripe melons, strawberries, chillies, peppers, tomatoes and other similar fruit and vegetables outside can be a challenge, but EcoGreen™ Aerated Polythene has been specially developed to promote the ripening process.

    This new horticultural fabric is lightweight polythene with unique perforations that perform two vital functions. The perforations are 20mm in diameter allowing easy access for pollinating insects, so plants can be kept protected throughout the season without the need to uncover for pollination. The perforations also ensure that crops are kept well ventilated, allowing air and moisture to freely circulate around the plants, keeping them healthy and reducing the risk of disease.

    As an added benefit, the Aerated Polythene provides protection from harsh weather and keeps off the birds. Other uses include weather and pest protection for seed beds and newly sown lawns – when laid flat on the ground it retains warmth and moisture which stimulates seed germination.

    Haxnicks EcoGreen™ Aerated Polythene is available as a folded sheet – 1.8 metres wide by 10 metres long – and comes in a pale green colour which makes it less obtrusive in the garden. Priced at £14.99.

  • Soft on Plants, Strong on the Job

    Haxnicks Original Soft-TieIt doesn’t matter how good your plant supports are if the tie used is not appropriate for the job. The award-winning Haxnicks Soft-Tie comes in two widths to ensure that plants stems benefit from the right amount of cushioning, so delicate stems are not bruised or broken.

    Soft-Tie has an inner core of galvanised steel wire, which gives it its strength, and an outer coating of a unique, UV-stabilised rubber compound, which gently cushions and protects plant stems from damage. It is easy to secure with just a twist (no need for fiddly knots) and can be easily cut with a sturdy pair of scissors. With a couple of quick twists, the tie may be quickly and easily adjusted to accommodate growing stems. Put a twist between the support and the stem and you have a readymade spacer to prevent damage from chafing. Soft-Tie does not rot, so it lasts much longer than regular ties and it can be washed and re-used. Its natural green colour allows it to blend with foliage making it as unobtrusive as possible.

    The Original Soft-Tie from HaxnicksWith a 7mm diameter and a slightly thicker steel core, the Original Soft-Tie (RSP £4.99 for 5m) is the perfect choice for tying up plants that are heavily-laden with growing crops, or for tying up the thicker stems of trees, shrubs, roses, large climbers and fruit bushes. With its superior cushioning and strength, it’s a good choice for any plants in exposed spots that are susceptible to wind damage.

    Slim Soft-Tie (RSP £4.99 for 8m) is half the width of Original Slim-Tie, only 3.5mm in diameter, and is designed for use with the thinner, more delicate stems of climbing annuals, young vegetables and shrubs, tall perennials and houseplants.

  • Runners around the Maypole

    The Haxnicks Garden Maypole

    First of all, just because something is practical doesn’t mean it has to be boring. The new Haxnicks Garden Maypole Plant Support is an attractive frame for climbing plants. Suitable for flowers such as sweet peas or vegetables such as runner beans.  It bridges the gap between functionality and ornamental interest.

    Though Instagram would have you believe it, decorative vegetable gardening is not a new idea. For many years vegetables and herbs have been a feature in ornamental gardens. Many have interesting textures or colourful foliage and flowers.  Many also smell great.
    As a result, when grown alongside traditional ornamental plants, they really add interest.  Their shapes can create wonderful contrasts and harmonies. Simply designing your vegetable garden in a different way can make a big difference and make it visually more appealing.  Introducing trellises, archways and other architectural features is quite simple and can be stunning.

    Haxnicks Garden Maypole stands over six feet tall.  It creates an elegant frame for climbing vegetables.  Runner beans, French beans, mange tout and peas are all ideal. The Maypole is tough and durable year on year. It is strong: the material selected for the centre pole and decorative finial is black powder-coated steel. From this eight rot-proof, polypropylene strings radiate out.  Finally strong galvanised-steel anchor pegs complete the package.  Like most Haxnicks products it is easily packed away and stored once the season has ended.  And can be used again the following year.

    Vegetable Garden

    Runner beans are one of Britain’s most popular home-grown vegetables.   From sales of the Garden Maypole it seems that Britain’s gardeners are getting more adventurous about where and how they grow them too.

    As long as gardeners are having fun with their plot and creating something they love then we are happy.  However, if you always grow your beans up canes.  And if the beans are always right next to the strawberries. Just behind the lettuces. Next to the onions.  And if it just might be time for a change to happen.  Garden Maypole might be the answer.

    If you decide to go for a redesign then please tag us in your Social Media posts.  We would love to see your new improved garden.
