Gardening goodies sprout up on Esther N McCarthy’s list this week.

Wish list: HAMO beach chairs

Debenhams have a beautiful array of spring and summer garden ware, with teals and pinks featuring throughout. Perfect for a party. www.debenhams.ie.

Relax outdoors in style with the Mount Brandon six-seater set, €1,350. Available at Carewswood Garden Centre and Caf, Castlemartyr, Co Cork; 021-2428494.

Ooh, don’t you just adore the smell of the BBQ of an evening? Check out this Smokey Joe, a handy, portable beauty, with a useful lid lock. The fire-resistant (I should hope so) and rust-resistant lid and bowl are made from steel and porcelain enamel inside and out, making them weatherproof and very durable. It comes with a 10-year, limited warranty; €84.99, available from Atkins, Carrigrohane Road, Cork. www.atkins.ie, gardenworld@atkins.ie. 021-4933433.

If you’ve got a lot of grass to cut, check out the Grasshopper. 226v – 52, this is a heavy duty, commercial quality machine. There’s no messing around with this piece of kit. There are petrol and diesel models available, with a 12-gallon (45.6l) fuel capacity. Contact Pat Geaney Lawnmowers, www.thelawnmowerman.ie.
