Lansdown Bench on BBC Gardeners’ World Friday 11th September

BBC Gardeners’ World were in Bath last week filming the Bath WI garden in Victoria Park as part of a WI Centenary feature. The WI community garden is in the beautiful Botantical Gardens in Royal Victoria Park, Bath. The garden is entirely made up of edible plants and flowers. Happily for us the garden also features an Ironart Lansdown bench. Our benches are all handmade here in our workshops in Larkhall, and this one was handpainted by Nichola Thearle in a subtle Union Jack design.

Pictured sitting on the bench here are BBC’s Rachel De Thame with Kitty, Head Gardener at Bath’s WI. You can catch the epsiode this on BBC iplayer from Friday 11th September at 8.30pm on BBC 2.

The Bathwick Hill Sun flower

Bath & North East Somerset Parks department have been busy planting around the Ironart Sun Flower sculpture on Bathwick Hill. It’s great to see it looking so radiant in the summer sunshine after months of bare earth and dreary weather.  It gets a big thumbs up from all of us, hope you’re enjoying it too!

Everything’s coming up roses

Summer is here and everywhere you look the roses are in bloom. We have had a flurry of orders for garden structures since an editorial piece about Ironart’s fruit cages appeared in Gardens Illustrated magazine this month – the most popular being wrought iron rose arches.

Here at Ironart our arches are made from solid mild steel round bar, which is then galvanized before being painted. Unlike a lot of the tubular steel, powder coated look-a-likes you find on the high street, they really are built to last.

If your garden is crying out for one of these, follow this link to the rose arch section of our website, because we’d love to make one for you. (But please note that there is a reasonably long lead-time on these at the moment.)

Ironart fruit cages in Gardens Illustrated magazine

Ironart are featured in Gardens Illustrated magazine this month. The magazine’s July issue which went on sale last Friday – includes a design sourcebook editorial page on “Fruit cages: made-t0-measure garden solutions to protect your fruit and vegetables”. The editors picked up on a gothic fruit and vegetable cage we made for talented Garden Designer Marion Mako, which graces a beautiful garden near Colerne on the edge of Bath. Here’s a link to that particular gothic bespoke fruit cage on our website. If you grow fruit and vegetables, have a  problem with birds and would like an elegant solution to the problem.. please get in touch.

It’s garden furniture season here at Ironart…

After a beautiful weekend of sunshine here in the West Country it’s no surprise that orders for our hand made wrought  iron garden furniture and structures are starting to flood in. The Ironart team have been beavering away in the workshop these past few weeks making garden benches, chairs, tables, rose arches, pergolas, braziers and fruit cages galore.

We have been making garden furniture and structures for many years now, and have developed a collection of best-selling classic designs with timeless appeal. All our garden furniture and structures are galvanized to give them years and years of enjoyment. They are then painted here in our workshop in the colour of your choice. As ever the Ironart Lansdown benches are proving a real hit with clients and magazine editors – they are super comfortable with a laid-back seating style.

We don’t have a showroom but we usually have a small selection of our furniture here in the yard in Larkhall on the edge of Bath. If you’d like to come and take a look please get in touch before you set off to come and visit.
