Black Friday is here again, and while there's not a huge amount of gardening going on over the winter months, it's a great time to be planning and thinking ahead.


Below are a few deals we've spotted which we particularly like and which we think are definitely worth diving into over the next week or so.

When is Black Friday 2022?

In 2022, Black Friday falls on the 25th November, but as most people will know, it stretches far beyond that one day, with most retailers starting their Black Friday deals weeks ahead. Discounts are offered right up until Cyber Monday, which falls on the 28 November this year.

Black Friday has become one of the wisest times to make a purchase in the year, with retailers preparing their biggest bargains and most desirable deals on this date. So if you’re looking for gardening tools, potting sheds or perennials, now's the time to start scooping up those discounts.

Black Friday gardening deals: our favourites

Bosch AHM 38 G Manual (RRP £74.99)

Bosch AHM 38 G Manual Garden Lawn Mower on a white background

While the big, shiny new power lawnmowers are nice, there's a new trend for the manual lawnmower and we love it. The push lawnmower is a great eco-friendly option, which also offers a chance to do a bit of a workout around the garden while you're mowing too.

We think the five helical steel blades are likely to be sharp and strong enough to cover your grass patch and keep it tidy and there's a substantial 25L grass box at the back to collect your clippings.

It's not too heavy, at 7kg in weight and has wheels which are designed for ease of pushing around your garden. There’s even a rear roller to create smart stripes on your lawn as you mow.

Here's more Black Friday lawnmower deals.

Keter Glenwood Outdoor Storage Box on a white background

Its the perfect time of year to be thinking about garden storage, and this Black Friday offer sees a nice saving on this handy storage box.

Keter is a reliable brand when it comes to garden storage, with a range of smart, high-quality boxes, designed to blend into your outdoor space.

We like this because of the sheer capacity of its storage, as well as its ability to resist all weathers. The wood-style exterior also means that it should slot discreetly into a spot in your garden.

The piston-assisted lid is another major plus point for us, as it makes loading and unloading much easier when your hands are full.

These stylish seats are all the rage at the moment. Keep them outside to relax on sunny days or bring them indoors to create a tranquil reading nook in a living room, bedroom or playroom.

This is a great Black Friday offer, with 15 per cent off the RRP. This one is made from rust-proof steel in a tasteful brown tone, so it’ll look smart in any garden.
