Since the Chelsea Flower Show, the Elho raindrop inspired water butt has been getting rave reviews and huge praise from some of the biggest garden critics around.
Alan Titchmarsh was one of the first people to really draw attention to it. He looked at it constantly and commented with admiration which in turn sent a large crowd of traffic to the garden in which this fantastic piece of garden equipment featured.
The Chelsea Flower Show couldn’t have picked a better week to be held on, the temperature has barely dipped below 20°C all week, making it the perfect weather to stroll around in. Many gardeners have commented that the strong sunlight has made their gardens even more attractive and helped them appear ‘full of life’ for the crowds. The sun obviously isn’t for everyone, so those with gardens full of shaded areas provided by trees or large foliage had a lot of visitors when people needed a few minutes to cool down.
Those who attend the Chelsea Flower Show are usually keen gardeners and looking out for things which could add that little something else to their own garden. One of the most highly sought after pieces happened to be the Elho water butt which caused quite a stir.
Not only is it dramatically shaped and inspired by natural events (rain), but it’s well priced considering the brand name which is extremely well known in the Netherlands. It’s one of those things that will be a focal point of a garden without trying; everyone will be intrigued and want to talk about it.
Lee Taylor, product manager at GardenToolbox commented on the Elho raindrop water butt. “We knew when we ordered in the Elho range that there were some fantastic pieces of kit; but we didn’t foresee how much of a hit they would be. Not only is the design a statement, it’s functional like a regular water butt and in times like these, where hosepipe bans are in place, it makes complete sense to buy one. There are very few products in the garden market which can pull off iconic and functional at the same time, but this does it extremely well and it’s priced accordingly. I’d urge everyone to take advantage whilst they’re still in stock, because based on incoming searches; they might not be around for very long!”
