About The Idle Mole Welcome to The Idle Mole.
This part is designed to tell you all about us which if we are honest is such a difficult thing to do as we are all about looking after you our customers! So here is just a little bit of our story in case you were wondering….
We are Trudy and Helen; an unlikely partnership but after starting off as friends we have worked side by side for many years building a successful gardening and tea room business. Looking for different ways to share our passion we decided to venture into the world of e-commerce. Being as we are we couldn’t be satisfied with just another on line shop so The Idle Mole was born…….
The Idle Mole web site is a showcase of everything we love about gardening, our aim is to let you create amazing garden spaces with minimum effort. The idea is we do all the leg work, looking for truly beautiful, quality products to add those extra special touches to your outside spaces.
Working alongside us is of course Ivan the Idle Mole. As well as being our mascot and incredibly lazy he drives us on to find ideas and products to help him and you make your gardening lives stress free and fulfilling.
Alongside our carefully sourced and quality products we want to offer you support and advise too. Creating beautiful year round gardens needs planning and care. Trudy and Helen are on hand to answer any queries you may have and will provide you with handy tips and advice to help you along the way. Visit The Idle Moles Garden School page to download our handy gardening information sheets or to view our programme of events and workshops.
If you prefer to choose your products in person why not visit us at our lovely garden centre at The World Of Belvoir.
