With the shock April heatwave that lasted (in true British fashion) a mere few days, we have been teased with a taste of Summer and the rainy weather certainly isn’t dampening our spirits. Visions of warmer days dance in our heads and we want to be ready to make the most of it the next time the sun decides to shine. Read on for our top tips on how to prepare for a Great British Summer!

We have a fantastic range to suit any need, stocking everything from day beds to dining sets. To see our full range of garden furniture, and for prices and product information, click here!
A BBQ is a necessity for any garden party host; the food is simple to make but tastes amazing, and it’s all done in the great outdoors. We recommend chicken skewers with courgettes and peppers and foil-wrapped baby potatoes for a delicious side dish. And, of course, you can’t go wrong with the humble burger.

A seasonal tipple is a must-have for a sunny day in England – it simply wouldn’t be right without one! For most boozy Brits, Pimm’s is a firm favourite; for a Caribbean twist we suggest replacing the lemonade with ginger beer, or for more decadent occasions top up with plenty of Prosecco! Also, check out these alcoholic ice pop recipes for the ultimate refresher!
As much as you prepare for Summer you can’t prepare for the British weather – yet however temperamental it may be, us Brits have a special talent for making the best of it whatever the weather (but fingers crossed for a dry Summer anyway)!
