Welcome to the Gardeningetc guide on everything at B&Q that's garden related. From furniture to firepits and power tools. Up this month we've rounded up the six essentials you need from B&Q, to spend this Easter weekend alfresco. Especially because from the 29th of March, we are allowed to meet another household in our back gardens. We imagine lots of us will be enjoying their egg hunts outside this year, and this alone is reason enough to get the lawn mower out – or to finally buy one.
Whether you are preparing your garden for guests or you want it to look nice for family members, we can help either way. Keep scrolling for six top B&Q buys to take a look at – and possibly purchase – ahead of the long Easter weekend. We are talking everything from extra foldable seating for dinner, a lovely fire pit so that you can enjoy your garden for longer, and even some garden storage to hide away your tools in style.
