Stay Hydrated This Autumn

Add a blast of flavour to your water with our Tea & Water Infusers and Fruit Drink Maker & Flasks. It’s just as easy to become dehydrated during autumn & winter, making us more susceptible to colds & flu. Plain water can be dull and the sugar content of dilute squash can be sky high – so add fresh fruit from your bumper harvests to your water for a detoxifying energy boost.

These fuss-free infusers and flasks in-one are simple to use and ideal for taking to the allotment or the office to make delicious flavoured hot and cold drinks from home-grown fruit and herbs. Learn how to spot the signs of dehydration.

Crop Ripening Cover £14.99

Cover plants with a Polythene Ripening Cover & speed up the ripening process before the first frosts approach.
