Still open for business
The Gardener’s Blacksmith is still open for business. As a sole worker, I have no problem with social distancing. If you let me have your order by phone/email, I can take payment by BACS and then I can deliver your order and leave it in a pre-arranged place. With so much time being spent in the garden at the moment, there’s never been a better moment to take stock of the plant supports and structures that you need.
Athelhampton Autumn Plant and Craft Fair
Sunday 13 September 2020, 10am-3pm, Athelhampton House, Dorchester DT2 7LG
We’re so pleased that this great plant fair is running. Such a treat after a spring and summer without such events. We love going to Athelhampton House with its glorious setting. Come and enjoy a mix of plants, local craft and garden-related stalls. Something for everyone! Entry fee of £7 includes admission to the grounds and gardens which are well worth a visit in their own right. Tickets must be bought in advance https://www.athelhampton.com/events-1/autumn-plant-fair
About the Company
Jonne set up The Gardener’s Blacksmith in 2015 as a semi-retirement business in order to keep himself sane, sociable and solvent, tapping into more artistic roots that did not get a chance to breathe in his professional life as an innovation and leadership consultant and coach. He works in East Devon with a forge in Axminster.
As gardeners, Jonne and and his wife Tricia have designed a range of well-priced, practical plant supports that work – not flimsy from mass production factories and not over-engineered and overbearing.
This has developed into other products for both the garden and home as ideas and commissions suggest other directions. A second range of furniture arose from this experience and also new artwork is now included on the site. One of the advantages of metal is that many of the products can work either indoors or outdoors, one simply needs to pay attention to the finish.
If you have an idea, please give Jonne a call and he will help you develop them into a workable design. If it is not something he can help you with, he will try to direct you to another blacksmith who can.
