“ Manufacturer: Wilko / Type: Garden Lights „
We wanted some new lights for our garden in case we are sitting out there after dark in the summer months. We like the solar powered ones as we don't have to worry about having wires trailing out there then. We had a look in our local Wilkinson store and found these lovely lanterns.
One lantern costs you £4.54 and it comes in a white square box. When we first picked up the box we were wondering how on earth a long lantern like the one on the photo on the box would fit inside this square block shaped box but we found out after opening it that the pole you fix into the ground is in two pieces which you connect together by screwing them together.
The two pieces were easy enough to join together and then at one end there is like an S shaped bit where you hang the lantern on to. The bit that catches the sun is on the top of the lantern. We have bought two of them and have them sticking out of tubs with plants in. One is in direct sunlight all afternoon, the other is mostly in a shady spot but they both came on in the evening and the light given from them was quite nice. It was bright enough to light the way if you were walking about in the garden. I think we would need to get a few more either the same or similar to give the garden adequate lighting for sitting about chatting but its a good start.
