Promising review: This has to be the coolest, most practical thing for my garden. I was so excited when it came in the mail superfast! It’s lightweight but very, very sturdy. I am impressed with the quality of both the metal & the kneeling pad.

This garden arch is made of a steel frame and is powder coated to extend its life. It has a center height of 2.4 m (8 ft). It is ideal for all climbing plants.
Promising review: I am absolutely thrilled with this arch and really can’t understand the negative reviews. It was incredibly easy to assemble (I did it on my own and assembled it in under an hour despite a user error!). It does need to be secured into the ground but is a high arch (quite challenging to maneuver for a 5’3″ petite lady, but I did it!). It is taking the weight of a large rose well and already has 2 x honeysuckle plugs climbing up the legs. I will definitely use this company again in the future. @MsStardust

Promising review: I bought another 3 to add to the 1 in the picture I’ve had now for around 3 years and still going strong. The rope at the bottom is great for tipping the bags whilst keeping hold of them. It’s strong and will last. And for the price, you can’t go wrong. @Mark

Promising review: Nice product. I have been looking for something to finish our wildlife ponds that didn’t involve bricks and mortar. This is perfect, the ground is a little uneven, and the bricks would have shown the odd contour. With this, I can expand the pond area without having to break up a static border every time. Looks good too. @H.G. fan

9. While working in the garden, you don’t need to get dirty and scratched. Do your hands a favor and slip on these gardening gloves. They are comfortable to wear with a stretchy softness that fits well and looks fashionable.
4.6 stars out of 5
The gloves are made of soft leather and spandex. They provide a breathable grip and good protection for pulling up thorny plants. They have an adjustable Velcro grip for wrist support to keep dirt and mud from getting in.
Promising review: I am so impressed with these gloves. As you can see from my photos, they have been well-used. I have had no issues with them. Cutting rose bushes and brambles, while holding them, I have never had a thorn go through.
One side is not protective though, so you do have to be careful, as a thorn would go through the fabric side. I have had no issues with quality or splitting seams. They are a great value for the money. @Anna M Dolan
10. With the help of these pruning shears, you will be able to prune all your plants and get them ready for growth and blossoming. They’re sharp and reliable enough to handle most light pruning jobs with ease, and they can also come in handy when doing some heavy trimming.

Promising review: Perfect for getting rid of ivy entwined in a fence. Just used gloves and a lot of patience — no weed killer, nor did we wet the ivy. @Amazon Customer
