If you added Horse & Showjump accessories to your Christmas shopping list this year, now really is the time to buy! Due to phenomenal sales over the weekend, we now have just two sets of Sloping Blocks available, the last before Christmas!

Also, in the Premium 2 Step Mounting Block we have just 2 red & 2 blue available, and there are limited quantities of the Parallel Block Pairs, and Pro-Jump Block Pairs too. We will be unable to have more stock on these items before Christmas, and last year many people were unable to get the exact colour and item of their choice as they left it too late!

Don’t be disappointed…place your order now, remember you can choose the Shop & Store option to ensure that your goods are reserved, wrapped and ready for us to ship to you at a future date.

PICTURE: 8-year-old’s letter to Farmers Weekly.

So, this week I attended a Property ‘tweet-up’ (cue Chris rolling his eyes heavenwards) to meet in person some of my favourite property tweeters, bloggers and all-round property nuts! Being as when I’m not at Agratech,  I spend half of my working life, and much of the rest of my life (leisure time, dream time….) instilled in anything to do with houses, property, renovation and just all-round general house nosiness, it was a night of pure heaven.

Not much to do with Agratech, and sprayers you’re thinking, except that one of the attendees was a lovely lady, Liz Ackerley of Poppyhead Consultancy, who was recently crowned the Grand Designs Live Garden Designer of the Year!  And having read her blog and looked at some of her portfolio shots, I thought I should give Liz a mention.

Here’s an extract from her about me page:

 a chartered landscape architect and qualified garden designer with a number of years experience designing and managing landscapes from tiny courtyards to large private and public spaces. In the late 90’s Liz trained first at Capel Manor, Middlesex University where she was best garden design student of the year… Liz has held positions in several design consultancy and landscape architecture practices and has also taught garden design on courses in both London and Staffordshire.

Fantastic, and you can read more about Liz, and find her contact details from her website here.

But if like me, you work in images, here are some images from her beautiful award-winning design. You can read Liz’s blog post here to learn about her design concept and see images from the drawing board through the build and the completed garden, which is truly stunning. A worthy winner

But Due to all Agratech staff having to appear as Court Witnesses, we will be closed on Friday 1 November.

Obviously this is for reasons beyond our control and we hope to be back as normal Monday 4th November!

You may of course continue to order via the website, but no orders will be despatched.



From Diggers to Dogs, and Food to Ferrets….
