Gardenstone Stepping Stones are ideal for random paths through borders and across lawns. When using in a lawn, the top surface should be kept level with the turf to ensure easy mowing.
At Griffins, we have been selling Kelkay products for the past few years: stepping stones, walling, edging and sleepers. People love them because they are so easy to work with, without

having to employ someone to do the job. Logstone captures the weather worn  authenticity of wooden sleepers - using the joining post along with the sleeper you can create an interesting raised bed.
 
Stepping stones 
Gardenstone stepping stone are ideal for random paths through borders and across lawns. When using in a lawn, the top surfaces should be kept level with the turf to ensure easy mowing. Gardenstone is great for growing your own fruit and veg, or as a feature of a bed at a raised level. For anyone who has wet soggy soils a raised bed is an ideal way of getting plants to grow where normal soil conditions prevail.
Gardenstone edging has been proven as the perfect finishing touch to paved and gravel areas. They are also ideal for retaining soils when creating beds and borders. 
 These products come in a range of 2 colours: Cotswold stone and greystone.

Margarets tip of the week:
 
Are your primroses lasting for a long time or do they rot after a short time? Does this happen to your cyclamen as well? It may be that your soil is heavy, and needs to be dried up somehow. But rather than spending a lot of extra money on a drainage system, what you can do is add lots of grit when planting! If you find grit is too heavy for you to lift then the feather light 'Perlite' will do the same job. Always keep your plants raised a little off the ground and tilt them to the side - ever notice how primroses grow on a dry ditch and at an angle so that the rain runs off! For more of these helpful hints check out the Griffins Garden Centre Facebook page.
