New favourites launched in ‘Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball’ Collection

Gorgeous new additions to the best-selling Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball collection have been unveiled this autumn, with a variety of beautiful new products for home and garden, designed to make everyday living just that little bit more stylish.


In the garden, new ideas for garden decoration combine designer style with practicality. Handwoven wire baskets are a delight to use around the garden, for harvesting fresh fruit and vegetables, gathering flowers, or even collecting eggs. And to bring a ‘country garden’ feel to any herb patch, beautiful plant labels are elegantly embossed with the names of six favourite herbs, to clearly mark the leaves needed to perfect any dish!


A charming garden clock and dial garden thermometer are new to the Sophie range. In a timeless buttermilk shade, these elegant items are enhanced with lots of subtle designer touches, while sturdy frost-proof construction lets them stay out all year round, marking time and temperature as the seasons change around them.


Following up on the huge popularity of the Sophie Conran galvanized bird food tin, two new apple bird feeders care for our feathered friends in style. Appealingly shaped as a heart or a house, these feeders hold an apple or other fruit to offer a healthy addition to the diet of garden visitors.


For the stylish home, a gorgeous matt finish buttermilk shade features on a set of herb pots in a tray, which have been designed specifically to hold the larger living herb pots available from supermarkets. And to keep houseplants happy and healthy, the elegant matt finish also features on a beautifully-designed indoor watering can with a long, tapered spout for targeted watering.


Also new is a stylish selection of ideas for garden and home featuring a classic dark blue striped ticking fabric in heavyweight cotton. With items including a multi-pocketed gardening waist apron, technically-advanced gardening gloves, a set of stylish dining placemats, a cosy draught excluder, and a handy door stop, there are plenty of places to enjoy this timeless stripe, all round the home and garden.


Designer, author, cook and gardener Sophie is the only daughter in the renowned Conran design dynasty. She has collaborated with Burgon & Ball since 2010, producing award-winning products which enjoy a near-cult following among keen female gardeners. Beautiful premium packaging with gold foil details, attached with leather cord, marks out this collection as a range of distinction. With RRPs from £6.99 to £29.99, the new items are sure to please Sophie aficionadas everywhere.
