Garden News – June 2019
In her regular column Naomi Slade delights over her beautiful new Victorian Walkaround Greenhouse from Forest Garden Products, painted in her special mix of Thorndown Slade Green to match her shed.
Garden News – May 2019
Naomi Slade, prolific garden journalist, author and designer, is bringing to life her own small urban city garden which started as an unprepossessing slope of clay and concrete. After plenty of ground work and a fair bit of planting she has now started to focus on the garden structures, starting with the fence and potting shed.
Before climbers shot into action Naomi painted her fence in Wispy Willow to create a bright, fresh boundary that would frame her garden and provide a lovely backdrop to her planting.
Studying the Wood Paint colour chart for hours, Naomi couldn’t quite find the shade she really wanted. Reed Green was close but she wanted more of a sea green. To create the right shade she picked Peregrine Blue to add the right hue, then experimented by mixing different ratios of Peregrine Blue into the Reed Green. Being creative she used clean old yoghurt pots to mix together paint using an old plastic medicine spoon to measure out 5ml and 2.5ml quantities.
Garden Answers Feature – April 2019
If you’re an avid reader of this great gardening magazine (like me!) then you will spot Thorndown’s Peelable Glass on page 11 of the April issue.
It features a picture sent into us by one of our customers who decorated her greenhouse in an art-deco stained glass style. Linda removed her panes of glass, giving them a good clean then rinsing thoroughly with water to remove any muck or film that could block or repel the glass paint. She applied the translucent glass paints using a roller with a foam sleeve as they soak up less paint and leave a nice smooth finish. Linda only applied one coat but you can paint on a second for a more solid/opaque coating.
We think it looks great and is a quick and easy way to brighten up a greenhouse through the winter months. On a practical level it offers shading and screens untidy seed trays waiting to be cleaned for the new sowing season.
By planning your design and colour scheme, using Peelable Glass Paint can also turn your greenhouse into an attractive feature and part of your garden design.
We have teamed up with Garden Answers magazine to give away 20 x 150ml tins of Peelable Glass Paint in a colour of your choice. To enter all you have to do is send them a postcard or email (address details on p101 of the magazine) with your name, address and favourite colour. Good luck!
