Back in July 2009, we were devastated when gardening retailer Smith & Hawken announced it was closing all store locations and shutting down its e-commerce website. Where were we to purchase (or lust over, at the very least) the lovely wooden-handled English gardening tools and copper planters that the brand was known for?
Then, in early 2010, it was announced that Target had purchased Smith & Hawken. This month, the mega-retailer launched its first Smith & Hawken collection since buying the brand. So how does the new line compare with the original Smith & Hawken goods?
We checked out the collection recently and we're impressed! The offerings include long-handled gardening tools (still made in England), gorgeous copper window boxes, steel arches and trellises, outdoor furniture and cute garden bags and accessories. The products—which start at $10 and run all the way up to $2,500 (for a teak table)—seem incredibly well-made and a fitting revitalization of a beloved gardening brand.
