5 Garden accessories with a difference

Every now and again I come across some unusual garden accessories and I often make a note of where I saw them for future reference.  Today's post features five with a difference. Rice bag planters by Garden Beet

The first are these recycled rice bag planters from Garden Beet.  They help to reduce international landfill and support communities in Cambodia.  I think they'd be fabulous used to brighten up an allotment or vegetable garden.

Eva Solo bird feeders at John Lewis

These unusual bird feeders, designed by Eva Solo for John Lewis, would add a bit of class to any garden whilst allowing you to see the birds in all their glory.

I'm not sure how squirrel-proof they'd be, but they're much more attractive than any regular feeder so definitely worth the investment if you can be sure that it's only the birds that get fed.

Kettle watering can from Hen & Hammock

These kettle watering cans from Hen & Hammock would add a splash of colour to any greenhouse or kitchen.  A bit quirky, but quite different to your regular means of watering the garden.

Recylcled tyre swing from Hibbitt of Oswestry

Hibbitt offer a range of recycled tyre swings including horses, rodeo, an elephant and this motorbike which I'm sure would appeal to any child. Not the most attractive of swings, but a bit of fun and great for a children's play area.

Stone apple from Garden Art

My last pick is this stone apple from Garden Art which would look great as a centre piece in a kitchen garden.  Garden Art offers an extensive range of planters, statuary and urns, among other things, so if this isn't quite your thing I'm certain you'll be able to find something that you do like.
