If you struggle to get your fire or BBQ to light, then look no further than the Bouffadou pipe.
Made of iron, simply point the end in to the base of the fire and then blow through the mouthpiece - an easy way to get that fire started.
Makes a great gift for those extremely difficult people who have everything except a bouffadou!
Shown with the cast iron fire pit.
Extremely sensible ash bucket with a good fitting lid to stop the ash drifting out of the bucket when taking it out to empty.
The handle has wood trim for comfort.
Made of metal with an slate blue enamel finish, is a real must for anyone with open fires.
Did you know that you can use wood ash on your garden?
The species of wood you are burning affects the nutritional value of the ash, but most wood ashes contain potassium, some phosphorous and magnesium. To neutralise acid soils you need about twice as much ash as you would lime, so use it around anything but acid loving plants. Mix the ash thoroughly with your soil for best results (allowing the ash to cool first of course!) Tomatoes, in particular, love a bit of ash.
We’ve yet to try some of these ideas, but wood ash can also apparently be used to: Melt ice
Hide paint stains on paving
Repel slugs and snails - by sprinkling around the plant you want to protect.
Polish silver and clean sooty glass fireplace doors. (It was even used to polish teeth in the days before toothpaste)
Until we try some of these ourself you are best to experiment if in any doubt.
This log carrier really is the cream of the crop. The extra length it provides means that it is flexible enough to carry a really large load with more than enough for a day of log burning. The suede leather handles provide comfort and strength as well as giving the carrier a longevity that is needed in a product that has to withstand a bit of rough logging about. The sides are also reinforced for the same reason. Finally the inside is lined with a wipe-able material.
Match Box Tin Holder.
Matches not included.
Holds 1 box of kitchen matches
No more smelly firelights floating round the log basket.
Keep them safely stored in this metal tin.
The bucket is made from metal with an enamel finish and clearly marked for its purpose, in case the least intelligent member of the household devises another use for that pile of sticks…

Sit round the fire and BBQ at the same time. This firepit can be used with both charcoal and wood and being made out of stainless steel it will not rust.
The cooking grid is made out of chromium-plated steel which makes for improved distribution of heat.
Made from Stainless Steel, the edges of the fire pit do not get warm when the firepit is in use.
Firepit accessories are also available - please contact the furniture order line 0845 6052505 for details.
Our recommendations are:
Stainless steel lid covers the top of the fire-pit acts as a cover but also making the fire-pit into a low table when not in use.
Revolving holder will lift the fire-pit grill up from the bowl - giving flexibility when cooking.
BBQ/Paella pan sits in the revolving holder - use for cooking paella, chilli, or eggs and bacon!
This roomy wooden storage shed can be used to dry out cut down wood before burning on the fire, or as outdoor protection for already dry logs.

We love this harvest bucket - made from sturdy steel wire, it is ideal for harvesting anything from your vegetable plot such as potatoes, courgettes, carrots to cauliflowers.
Lift your spuds and let the soil spill through the basket back to the ground.
And if you don’t have a veg patch … and just love the basket then use it to store anything from kindling wood and old newspapers, to balls of knitting wool…
