Get set to bloom
The Spear & Jackson Kew Gardens Collection of tools and accessories has been developed in partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew – and 10 lucky readers are set to get their hands on two of the newest items in the Kew collection, the Flower Spade and the High Performance Gloves.
The Flower Spade (RRP £33.99) is designed for working in raised beds and borders, with its round-nosed head, pointed tip and chamfered edges making it perfect for planting, lifting and dividing. At 53cm (21in), it’s smaller than a typical spade, so it is lightweight and comfortable to use.

The mirror-polished stainless steel head is easy to clean and rust-resistant. The pointed tip makes quick work of breaking the ground, while the chamfered edges cut through the soil and slice cleanly through plants when dividing them. The head is dished to retain soil and is double-riveted to the hardwood FSC-certified wooden handle for optimum strength and durability.
The Kew High Performance Gloves (£18.99) are a perfect partner to the Flower Spade. A polyester back helps to keep hands cool in summer, and elasticated wrists ensure a secure fit. The fronts are high-quality leather, reinforced on the fingers and palm to give extra padding where it’s needed most.

The Eco-Beehive is a nest-box for honeybees. Its aim is to focus not on honey production, but on encouraging bees into your garden. They will repay you by pollinating your crops and giving you hours of enjoyment.
If you are keen to keep bees but have been put off by the knowledge, skills and time needed to become a traditional beekeeper, the Eco-Beehive offers uncomplicated beekeeping for people who would rather be honeybee hosts. The Eco-Beehive is easy to put together and requires no regular servicing or maintenance – and you need no specialist training.
The Eco-Beehive replicates a natural hollow, such as a tree stump, that wild honeybees would nest in. Just place it in a suitable spot – under a deciduous tree is ideal – and the bees will move in on their own. The hive comes complete with a swarm lure and a symbiotic mulch.

We have one Eco-Beehive Complete Starter Kit worth £285 to give away.
