Welcome Gnome

Spring has finally arrived... and it's been a long.. long winter. It may not be warm enough yet but soon enough you'll be able to enjoy putting out the garden furniture and garden ornaments again. No doubt the garden will need some hard work to get it looking great but fear not because garden gnomes are well known for being the gardeners friend and helping out where they can, even bringing their own gardening tools with them. The little earth dwellers move at their own relaxed pace preferring to work at night time when they can be undisturbed to work their gentle magic, which might explain why they appear not to move at all during the day... they turn solid when they're exhausted!

Garden gnomes have been part of our heritage since the 1840's when Sir Charles Edmund Isham started the trend by bringing them over from Germany and adding them to his home and garden. Antique gnomes such as 'Lampy' are considered an investment and are insured for more than just a pretty penny.

Since Sir Isham's time they have become very popular garden ornaments throughout the world and although some people might consider them unsightly garden statues, even being banned from the Royal Horticultural Society's famous Chelsea Flower Show hasn't deterred them from being used as garden art. Fortunately this year the show included garden gnomes decorated by celebrities such as Elton John so they have seen a great boost in popularity.
