THE BLACK ROD flower basket is shaped like a hanging basket, but it sits on top of a pole which you can stick in anywhere in the garden - in the middle of a lawn, at the end of a flower border. You can move the whole thing while it is in full bloom to create different effects. The height is adjustable. Choose the design with fins for soft ground, a simple spike for hard ground. The price is pounds 33. Details of stockists from Bishop, Holland and Brown, Ample House, 63-65 High Street, Hampton Hill, Middlesex TW12 1NH (081-941 8666).
