THE MODERN MINT BLOG
That’s right, it is now time for a little sale…..
Up to 50% off selected items!
When we get to the last few items in a particular range, it makes it very hard to present them to people at the fairs and markets we visit. When you have a stack of hand made skipping ropes or amazing Japanese secateurs, it makes a statement. People notice it and want to touch these products.

Please enjoy yourselves by having a browse through our sale items, the ingenuous last few….

Just inc are you are free in the following dates in June, you can visit my mentor Charlotte Molesworth’s topiary garden… Check out the dates the garden is open here. And you can of course join both Charlotte and I for a topiary workshop in the garden in July, as well as September. Hope to see you there!
The Nunki weeder has been talked about by Jane Perrone in the newspaper (the Guardian, if you are interested. At the weekend.) She said this about our lovely weeding tool… “Getting on top of annual weeds such as hairy bittercress and speedwell can be tedious. The Nunki weeder has a curved blade that allows for precision work around plants….” There you go – a weeder for precision work, not an avocado destoner as someone once said to me. Take a closer look at the Nunki weeder now.
