Even in midwinter, ornaments can bring colour and interest to your garden. Today’s tasteful garden decorations are a long way from old-fashioned gnomes on toadstools. As well as statues or sculptures, you can choose wind chimes and weather vanes, sundials and clocks, or even fountains and other water features. John Lewis stocks a huge range of options from brands such as Foras and Fallen Fruits. Ornaments in wood, metal and stone are available in different finishes to complement your planting.
On summer evenings, tea lights and lanterns bring a garden to life and make it welcoming. Scented candles from Yankee Candle are a great accompaniment to a garden party or barbecue. Solar lamps are popular and inexpensive alternatives that require little maintenance. Decorative bird baths and tables, nesting boxes or feeders make great garden decorations, but will also attract bird-life. Carefully chosen ornaments help your garden smell, sound and look great.
