With summer just around the corner, Forest, the UK’s most inspirational garden timber brand, is launching several new premium sheds, summerhouses and planters ideal for outdoor living this summer. Designed to help consumers further enhance and appreciate their outdoor spaces, 19 brand new products have just been added, joining the 35 which were launched at Glee in 2014.
Each quality pre-treated FSC product, fully summarised in their entirety for the first time below, has been designed for the current trend for consumers investing, not spending – whilst also including options for all budgets and spaces.
Victorian Tall Wall Greenhouse – RRP £399.99
A stylish design that can be hidden out of the way – but demands to be on show. Supplied unpainted with adjustable shelves and two opening vents, a versatile option that would also suit rented or urban properties.
Large Clear Cold Frame – RRP £54.99
A new addition to Forest’s grow-your-own essentials, this new cold frame is large yet lightweight with clear styrene glazing. The easy-open lid and simple assembly makes this an ideal gift for any gardener.

Rectangular Planter – RRP £54.99
At 68cm wide and holding approximately 31 litres of compost, the Rectangular Planter is the same height and depth as the small Square Planter, adding to the mix and match versatility of this range.
Slender Planters – small RRP £89.99 and large RRP £99.99
An elegant combination of timber and steel, these planters are an ideal gift option for those looking for something special. Holds approximately 79 litres of compost (small), or 108 litres (large)

Flip Roof Log Store – small RRP £199.99 and large RRP £269.99
Complementing Forest’s existing range of logstores, this new design efficiently stores logs to free up space in the garage or shed. Featuring a unique hinged roof, a raised bottom and slatted sides, this log store ensures firewood is kept bone dry.
Pinnacle Log Store – RRP £149.99
For those that treat stacking logs as an art form – this new design has an apex shape that keeps logs together to form an attractive triangle. Looks great on the patio or against the wall of the house to create an attractive garden feature.

Forest’s Stroud (with a single door, RRP £429), Tetbury (with a double door, RRP £429) and Winchcombe (roomier and with a double door along the side of the building, RRP £499) summerhouses are all made with overlap timber for flexibility during hot weather and extra protection from rain.
The Honeybourne (£899.99) and slightly smaller Blockley (RRP £799.99) summerhouses are designed to fit into the corner of the garden, maximising internal space without taking up too much of the garden. Four panels of styrene and two opening doors keep it light and bright.
