Every man values a shed in his life, be it for peace, sanity or simply storage! The shed is often a hub of activity both industrial and recreational. At present the Gemini 6x6 Outdoor Storage unit is on offer at half price, perfect for storing all those gardening bits and bobs that the man of the house uses about the garden.

Accessorise That Garden Shed
The shed will not be complete without a kit out of the latest gizmos and gadgets for all those gardening tasks that keep himself ‘busy’ in the garden throughout the year. We have a broad range of garden tools that will speed up Dad’s gardening chores and have him relaxing in a jiffy!

5. A Championship Lawn
Like a green keeper looking after the greens at major world golf tournament many Dads will look after their patch of grass at home on an equal level, weeding it, feeding it, mowing it and edging it. We have a great lawn care range at some great prices that will be sure to come in handy for those dads who nurture and care for their lawn like it was a child.

6. Planting a Tree
Planting a tree is a wonderful way to celebrate Father's Day, a tree will last for decades, reminding the recipient of his place in your life for a long time. For example an oak tree symbolises strength, endurance and character. Our in-store horticulturists will help you select a tree suitable for your garden, and your Dad and make this gift and easy choice.
