I absolutely love them. The fabric is great – lovely quality, really comfortable, washes well and will dry overnight for next day. Like the fact they sit well on the waist and give bending ease in the seat. Really like to safety pockets, great for secateurs. I genuinely love my new trousers and have thrown out all of my old ones because I know I won’t wear them now I have my Genus ones to put on. Best of luck, will keep an eye on your website.

I love wearing your trousers. They are comfortable, warm and the knee pads are great. Also the pockets are useful, when at the allotment I can have a phone, house keys and allotment keys all safe and zipped up as well as places to stash seeds and labels ready for use.

The exceptional delivery meant that the trousers were waiting at the post office on our return last Saturday. The material feels lovely and whilst I avoid kneeling whenever possible the pads will be useful. Very happy, thank you.

Thank you so much. I have received my order in the post today – amazing efficiency, 10 out of 10!

Easter gardening and 10,000 eggs

Fantastic Easter egg hunts bring wonder to the garden Fantastic Easter egg hunts bring wonder to the garden

It’s Easter! This is traditionally the busiest period for gardening businesses. A spell of good weather at Easter brings gardeners with all kinds of interests and all kinds of skills out and about, not only pottering about their own gardens but also into garden centres and famous gardens to look for inspiration and something bright and cheerful to confirm that summer is on the way.

We were surprised to find that gardening in miniature is a popular activity in the States. There is a trend for creating “resurrection gardens” that depict some part of the Easter story. Other people find clever uses for flowerpots, eggs and spring flowers to make garden inspired displays for the Easter table.

The most popular Easter gardening activity here in the UK (apart from planting the spoils from the garden centre) must surely be the traditional Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday? I’ve friends with young children who do this every year. I have to say that we found a couple of gold foil wrapped eggs hidden in the willow tree late on in August … and yes we did eat them and they were still good! There is a couple in Germany who have been hanging eggs on one of their garden apple trees for over 40 years. They started with 18 eggs in 1965 and in 2012 they had reached 10,000! Wow!!
