Gardening is engrossing work and it can be all too easy to lose track of time while you’re busy planting, weeding and tending to your plants.
An outdoor garden clock is an ideal way to help you monitor the time as well as provide some extra decoration to your outdoor space. Many designs feature thermometers so you can also see the temperature and some have hygrometers, which gauge humidity, too.
In our selection below, we have brought together a range of styles so you can choose the best garden clock for you. Our outdoor clock round up includes classic, weatherproof, recycled and multi-functional options and more.
If you’re interested in more decorative ideas for sprucing up your garden, we’ve also put together some helpful garden mirror ideas (including advice on preventing confusion for wildlife) as well as unusual garden ornaments and even some of the best garden rugs, for something a little different.
