The flower lady - Now Available in Three Sizes...
In this Special Feature from The Garden Furniture Centre Clarence answers the most common questions about her life so far …
How do you make a difference?
“I was designed by a guy called Aaron in Australia and he took me to Vietnam to be hand-made from recycled 44-gallon drums. The skilled crafts-people in Vietnam who make me get a better quality of life because Aaron pays them well and gives them the skills they need.”
You spend a lot of time outside – how do you cope?
“The drums I’m made of are originally designed to cope with the harshest weather conditions during their ocean-going past – this is then passed on to me as I’m made. I love the sun because I’m UV Resistant and my enamel-coating gives me added protection.”
Obviously you’re made over and over again … are all Clarence’s the same?
“No. We’re all made from different coloured44-gallon drums - this makes me and all my cousins totally unique to the people, like you, who buy us.”
What are your best qualities?
I’ve got holes in my feet meaning I can stay upright on any surface – however uneven. My flower compartment has a hole for drainage purposes and a plug when you need me to hold the water and feed the plants I look after. I’ve also got wheels on my back legs so you can move me around easily.”

Our Van Deliveries
Please bear in mind, our products are of the highest quality, with the majority being imported from overseas and many items delivered fully assembled, therefore sometimes it takes us a little longer than mainstream retailers to deliver the quality product you deserve and expect.
Due to the large variation in the costs we incur for delivering to certain Post Codes across the British Isles we identify the following post codes as Exclusion Zones to the Free Delivery Option currently advertised.
The majority of our deliveries are made between 07:00hrs – 18:00hrs Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).
If you cannot accept the first available slot, then you'll be offered two alternatives on later dates.
Before placing your order, please check dimensions of internal and external access points including doors, corridors, stairs, etc particularly if you are ordering larger items of furniture.
Please ensure there is someone at the property to receive and sign for the goods. Ensure all access points are clear of obstacles. Self-assembly items will remain in their boxes.
Delivery access is down to your discretion and if you request us to go above and beyond we accept no blame if damage to property is done in due course. And therefore you undertake delivery of the furniture at your own risk.
Some deliveries are by third party couriers that use pallets. If the pallets are left, it is your responsibility to dispose of it.
Many third party couriers also only deliver to your door meaning it is your responsibility to place the item in its desired location.
