Gardens in summer become an extension of the house, and eating outdoors on long balmy evenings is one of the pleasures of the warmest months. Bring the cooking out too and you'll never want to go in: it's no surprise increasingly sophisticated outdoor kitchens are becoming a must-have for the 21st century gardener.
Cooking over fire is the traditional way, and in our garden centre you'll find plenty of options from kettle barbecues to models with built-in tables and warming facilities to keep the food hot, as well as all the accessories you'll need to cook up a storm.
Take it one step further and you can enjoy a firepit, a stylish bowl of fire either free-standing or sunk into the ground. They're just like a bonfire, cooking your food and keeping you warm so you can carry on cooking and eating outside even after it turns chillier in autumn.
Cooking on gas gives you instant heat that's completely adjustable. We have a great range of gas-fired barbecues to take your outdoor kitchen to a whole new level, including models with multiple burners, roasting heads, work tops and built-in storage.
Please ask the staff in our Howden garden centre for more information and advice about cooking in the garden.
