These battery-powered beauties from Poundbury-based Cuckooland have a soft or bright light and three levels of brightness, so you can use them to create a romantic vibe or find your way in the dark.
Hello, Ibiza cocktail lounge vibes! We love a multi-functional piece, and these light-up planters are perfect for giving your patio a little extra zhush. There’s a dimmer, colour rotation and even a strobe function for full-on rave vibes.
Bare bulbs not your thing? This string of festoon lights from Frome-based Cox & Cox comes with super sleek, smoke grey fluted shades, which means they look equally great inside as out. We love a bit of versatility at Muddy.
These cool Edison bulbs from The Worm That Turned in Nottingham are just the thing to give your garden a little industrial edge – just pop ’em under a parasol or pergoda and you’ve got the perfect lighting for your evening Aperol Spritz.
Not got a green thumb? Fake your florals with these amazing fennel lights from Sparkle Lighting in Bucks – they can run off batteries or solar power (if the British weather is playing ball, obv), and they automatically turn on at dusk for six hours of pretty glow.
It might look like something you’d spot at the Tate Modern, but this statuesque piece is actually a clever water drop light. Standing at 82cm tall, it’s ideal for making a statement in your garden – why not get two for either side of your doors? You’ll feel like you’re making a grand entrance every time you step outs.
