British Meadow: a new ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ collection from Burgon & Ball


This autumn there are beautiful new choices in the top-selling ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ range of gardening gifts from Burgon & Ball, the UK’s longest-established manufacturer of garden tools. The new ‘British Meadow’ design collection showcases delicate meadow flowers and butterflies, tapping into the trend for more informal gardens where nature can find a home, and the rekindling of our love for native British wildflowers and wildlife. 


The new ‘British Meadow’ collection includes top-selling lines from previous RHS Gifts design collections, also introducing a new gifting option with gift-boxed RHS-endorsed gardening snips to update and refresh the range. What’s more, with gorgeously designed, plastic-free packaging, the collection demonstrates that style can go hand-in-hand with concern for the environment, now an important consideration for shoppers.  


The elegant new design has been created by Burgon & Ball featuring illustrations dating back to 1815, specially selected from the RHS Lindley Library of historic botanical art. A classic navy blue background lets the jewel colours of the blooms and butterflies shine out, bringing this lovely design to life. 


The popular ‘letterbox-friendly’ gift options return in the new colourway. An RHS-endorsed flower and fruit snip, and a set of an RHS-endorsed pruner with holster carrying the British Meadow design, are both presented in gift boxes less than 3cm in height, ideal for sending by post. Engineered cardboard keeps the tools firmly in place inside their sturdy, beautifully printed card box. With blue soft-grip handles to match the design, the cutting tools carry a 10-year guarantee, so shoppers know they are choosing a high-quality gift.   


The RHS-endorsed trowel and fork set also uses cardboard packaging, going entirely-plastic-free for the first time. This top-selling gifting favourite looks very striking in the new British Meadow design. The tools have painted blue handles bearing the RHS logo and the trowel carries an engraved Gertrude Jekyll quote. As always, the tools have a lifetime guarantee, indicating their quality. 


The seed packet storage tin, a firm favourite of the range following its debut in the British Bloom collection, has been designed by gardeners, for gardeners. With smooth moulded curves, the tin is divided into three useful compartments, including a lengthways one to accommodate the very largest seed packets.   


The remaining items in the British Meadow line-up are the ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ gifting favourites twine in a tin, gardening gloves, indoor watering can, and super-comfortable Kneelo® kneeler, which showcases the beautiful design to stunning effect. 


The new collection looks simply gorgeous when displayed on the stylish ‘All You Need’ merchandising kit, and will make an eye-catching attraction in any gifting display. With RRPs from just £9.99 up to £24.99, this Christmas there’s the perfect gardening gift for every budget in the new British Meadow ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ collection.
