What else to buy for your garden, ready for the heatwave?
Buying more heatwave essentials? If you'll be spending lots of time in your garden this weekend soaking up the sun, you should probably invest in a BBQ or pizza oven, should you not already have one – because no one likes to cook inside when it's hot outside. That and a patio heater or fire pit for when the temperature inevitably drops come 11pm, and maybe even a hot tub – turn the heater off and enjoy cold bubbles. See more deals below.

When she's at home, Annie is forever brainstorming ways to maximize space out on her delightfully private, yet teeny-tiny, London terrace. With her Pug, Doug, to entertain outdoors and a penchant for sitting outside and catching the sun, this job is proving itself to be never-ending. She's changed her mind many times when it comes to decorating this space, having made her own pallet garden furniture but now, settling for a gorgeous bamboo set from Argos. This year, she's hoping to entice bees and other insects into her garden by filling the sizeable walled planter that stretches from one end of her terrace to the other, with wildflowers and more. Otherwise, next on her to-buy list is a luxury fire pit for keeping warm in the guaranteed British summertime breeze.
