As you may have already noticed, the temperature is on the rise and the air is starting to feel a touch warmer than usual, which only means one thing…a heatwave! From this week onwards, the UK is going to face a mini-heatwave with temperatures significantly rising next week. The Met Office has announced that temperatures could exceed 23°C all across the UK.

Senior operational meteorologist, Marco Petagna stated that “Temperatures are several degrees above where they should be at this time of year”, meaning we are in for a very warm Spring. If you have not managed to go on holiday in the past years because of the COVID pandemic, now is the time to soak up all the sun whilst you can!

Here at BS Fixings, our team also believes this temperature spike is the perfect time to do a spot of gardening. Whether your lawn is starting to look overgrown, or you have some flowers to pot, we stock a wide range of gardening tools to help you with your gardening this Spring.

We supply a variety of high-quality and high-performing gardening accessories and tools, including items from well-known industry names such as Wilkinson Sword, Fiskars, ALM, and Bulldog. Our website also allows you to find all your favourite gardening equipment in one place, meaning you can purchase everything you need to fill your gardening tool kit. Below we have listed our essential gardening products and tools, which we know you will love!
