Cheap ways to spruce up your garden furniture — from sunloungers to patio sets — plus grab a FREE Flopro hose reel worth £69.99

SECATEURS on stand-by – this is National Gardening Week, the ideal time to spruce up your green space.

And you don’t need to dig deep when it comes to updating your garden furniture.

From sunloungers to soft furnishings, I’ve found the best savings around  . . .

SECONDS OUT: Garden furniture doesn’t have to be new.

You can find high- quality patio sets on Gumtree that will save you pounds.

A rattan six-seater set costs £699 at Homebase, but a ­similar-looking set can be found on Gumtree for £500.

SAVE: £199

BUY AT B&M: When it comes to your garden, B&M has it covered. The discounter is selling everything from patio and sofa sets to hot tubs and sheds. Pick up a Sorrento Corner Sofa Set for £200 — John Lewis has a similar set for £799.

SAVE: £599

BE A BIG SOFTIE: If you don’t have the budget to replace your garden furniture, you can spruce up the stuff you already have by updating the soft furnishings.

Whether it’s a different parasol or new seat cushions, the smallest changes make a big difference. A charcoal grey garden seat cushion from Asda is £25, compared with a £30 outdoor cushion from Ikea.

SAVE: £5

SALE AWAY: As we creep closer to ­summer, there are lots of sales giving you the chance to bag a bargain.

On Amazon, an eight-piece garden furniture patio set has been reduced from £164.99 to £139.99. Make sure to hunt around to see what offers are about.
