As Father’s Day looms, everything should be flourishing in the garden. But there are always some little extras gardening dads could use to help them in their outdoor work and play area.

Spend a little: Dads who are likely to be stuck in the office beyond Father’s Day may like a little reminder on their desk of the great outdoors. Bluw has created a Desktop Garden complete with propagation tray, drip tray, soil, seeds and full instructions, encased in a decorative mini garden fence. (£14.25, Amazon)

Spend a bit: If he’s short of gardening shoes, check out the new pebbles design from BackDoorShoes, which are ideal for slipping on and off at the door, for gardening or nipping up to the shed, without ruining his regular shoes or trainers. They come in a range of designs up to size 13 and should ensure no mud in the house (£20, www.backdoorshoes.co.uk)

Spend a lot: Can’t house them in a garage, The Posh Shed Company’s outdoor cupboard may be the solution. Available in two sizes, the shelving, shoe holders and umbrella stands, keep items organised, dry and safe. (From £490, www.theposhshedcompany.co.uk)
