Spring Must-Haves For A Blooming Good Season!


The warmer temperatures, longer days, and birds singing can only mean one thing: spring is here, and summer isn’t far behind. After being stuck inside all winter, plant lovers are ready to get outdoors and start getting their garden area ready for the season. From window boxes to garden planters and more, there are many ways that you can turn your house and gardens into a beautiful spring escape for you and for your friends and family now that we can finally start hosting in our gardens again!

Hand Protection

Before getting to work, remember that the right gardening tools go a long way and that includes gardening gloves! The stylish Esschert Design - Floral Garden Gloves keep hands clean and protected from any sharp plants or thorns – and they’re currently reduced in The Outlet!  What sets them apart from other gardening gloves is the elastic cuffs to prevent debris from getting inside and PVC dots on the palm for an improved grip.

Soil Prep and Nutrition

After a long winter it might be that your garden is showing some signs of neglect! A good tidy up is always a good place to get started. Pull up the weeds from your garden, give the soil some nutrition and remove old and dead plants from window boxes. Your plants will grow healthier and stronger when you add Greendays Multi-Purpose Compost to soil or planter boxes. Sold in 60 litre bags, you’ll have enough for all of your spring gardening needs. Prepping the soil provides the best foundation for planting!

Gardening Tools for Pruning

Prune any plants that are looking a little wild or are covering walkways. The Niwaki Forged Snips make light work of all your pruning jobs in style whilst the Niwaki Sentei Garden Scissors are perfect for light jobs here and there. Designed and crafted in Japan, they are built to last and a stunning addition to your gardening tools!

Planters for Herbs and Flowers

Then it’s time to get a plan in place to keep everything you plant this season tidy! For herbs and a range of plants, we recommend the Large Wooden Pot Tray. Perfect for herbs, flowers, or houseplants, this pot tray fits just about anywhere and is loved by families teaching their kids about plants and those who love fresh herbs for their food and cocktails! To spruce up plants in the garden, our Polystone Egg Plant Pot is decorative and stylish, perfect for larger plants on your patio or decking. It’s also currently reduced from £35 to £17.50 in The Outlet so it’s the perfect time to stock up!

Window Boxes for Beautiful Windows

For homes with no garden access, such as flats and tenements, we recommend window boxes for easy and accessible blooms! Stylish, elegant, and affordable, our Curved Window Box is the perfect planter for spring flower gardens at your shelves and windows. Available in a wide range of colours including Black Ash, Urban Slate, Iris, and more, you’re sure to find the right colour to express yourself!

Why Shop at Living Windows London?

At Living Windows, we understand how much of a difference plants and gardening makes, not just to your property but to your wellbeing too. Since we’re based in East London, we know how it can seem impossible to create a green area at home, given the challenges of space, flats and rental agreements. That’s why, with our window boxes, we’re making small gardens accessible to all, and with our design consultation services we’re making green sanctuaries and urban gardens possible for all. If you’d like to support an LGBTQ-friendly, black owned small business that’s trying to make sure that beautiful blooms are accessible to all, we’d love to hear from you!
