Vintage Garden Salvage  

There is nothing new about recycling materials in gardens, witness the lovely old walls made from stone reused from monasteries and castles, but architectural salvage continues to be a great source of unique garden objects for the garden. We are always on the lookout for interesting garden salvage such as unusual reclaimed chimney pots, old wrought iron gates, antique gate finials and interesting carved stone architectural features. We also seek out old horticultural sundries such as vintage garden cloches, rhubarb forcers and galvanised planters
