Who Doesn’t Like a Garden Party?
Savoury snacks, cakes, tea and maybe a tipple of something a little stronger for the adults, surrounded by a garden that has burst forth into early summer. And what better excuse for a garden party this year than the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which celebrates an incredible 70 Years on the throne. If you are planning a garden or street party for the Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend – 2nd to the 5th of June, one of the key preparatory things you need to take care of is your garden!
How to Tame Your Hedges and Shrubs in Time for Your Jubilee Party
The month of May is the growing season and everything really does seem to burst into life. Hedges and shrubs in particular suddenly seem to grow at a rate of knots so two weeks before the party get them pruned and tidied up. If you have a small garden, The Handy THGSS 3.6v Lithium-Ion Cordless Shrub Shear & Grass Blades makes light work of pruning small hedges and shrubs. It’s a low cost, lightweight, handheld device which comes with the added benefit of an additional cutting head for edging your grass.
How a Garden Cart Can Also Be Used as an Impromptu Drinks Trolley!
To clear up the remains of your work, pop the lot onto a garden cart or trolley – so much easier to manoeuvre around the garden than a wheelbarrow and carries a lot more. There’s a wide range to choose from, from 200 to 400kg capacity. Of course, you can also use them to cart the many drinks bottles (soft and other!) around the garden on the day of the party. Why not go to town and decorate them with bunting for the occasion?!
Shredding the Waste for Mulch to Prevent Weeds
Whilst you can compost your prunings, you could instead shred them and use them as mulch around the garden. That will make for less weeding in the run-up to the Jubilee party. The Handy high-performance Electric Impact Shredder boasts a powerful 2500w motor and an impact type cutting-system, for a fast and efficient way to process your garden debris. It comes complete with a collection box and detachable large-aperture hopper, plus a plunger to make in-feed quick and easy. It’s also compact and easy to move, weighing just 13.8kg and equipped with sturdy transport wheels.
Ideas to Help Celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
So that’s your garden sorted, now plan for the big day itself. If you’re in need of inspiration, the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022 website has a great toolkit with everything from recipes and bunting to fun activities!
Make a Lasting Commemoration
The Queen’s Green Canopy is a unique, UK-wide tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, by inviting people to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”. It aims to encourage everyone to learn more about the best way to plant trees so that they survive and flourish for years to come. We love this idea! Why not do it on the day of your party and get everyone to join in?
