Sophie Conran Garden for Burgon and Ball Ltd

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from Harriet at Sophie Conran who'd read my blog and asked if I'd like to test some of their gardening range. Of course I jumped at the chance, I'd had my eye on the cherry blossom flask and enamel mug for months! Last weekend Ian wasn't working, the weather was beautiful so off we set for lunch on the North Downs and walking in the woods.

I've used many flasks over the years and to be honest some offer cold tea by the time we've reached Cobham and then walked around for an hour or so. I wasn't holding out with this pretty little flask. I wasn't disappointed, quite the opposite - hot tea two hours after making it and still hot when I got home 4+ hours later!

If you are looking for a pretty and practical flask for your allotment or walking adventures look no further. It fits in the side of a backback easily and it is lightweight and virtually unbreakable (not that I dropped it to try!) has a stainless steel inner to keep things hot or cold. A great tip from my husband, fill the flask with boiling water prior to filling with hot tea and it keeps it hot for longer. I plan to use the enamel mug this weekend when I'm pottering in my veg plot. I planted up my runner bean plants last week onto some lovely twisted willow canes.

I will be testing the three-pronged weeder tool this summer and I'll let you know what its like. You can find the whole range here and there is something in the range for every keen gardener.

What a lovely mug that is! Just right for taking into the garden or for a day out as well! xx
