Did you follow the BBC’s coverage of the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show at the weekend? We were glued to the TV and radio, amazed at the beauty of the displays, the great advice, the talent of the designers and the event in general. Chatsworth House in the Peak District, which shares a rich horticultural tradition with the RHS spanning 190 years, hosts the show on a 21 hectare site big enough to fill 26 football pitches. That’s a lot of flowers!
If you missed the coverage or would love to see an RHS flower show in the flesh, the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show is happening just outside London, 2nd – 8th July, or you could catch the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show near Manchester, 18th – 22nd July. The shows always inspire us to get out into the garden and do some tidying, planting or pottering, all with our trusty DAB radio playing summer tunes or a bit of Gardener’s Question Time or Flower Show highlights. Here are our favourite DAB radios, just the thing to while away the hours in a lovely flower garden this summer.
The Denver DAB-40 digital radio in light grey or black and white and white, at £39.99 +P&P , is a monochrome design icon. Its minimalist style features a contemporary rubberised matt finish with rounded edges and it guarantees to turn heads wherever you are.
The 2.4” TFT colour display supports a DAB slideshow, bringing news and information to life. Switch between DAB and FM radio, and select the station you require, which is also clearly displayed on the screen. Other features include a 24 hour alarm clock, headphone jack and battery back-up.
The Denver DAB-39 digital radio in stylish grey & white or blue, at only £39.99 +P&P, sounds as good as it looks. The rubberised matt finish, with rounded edges and retro volume and tuning dials give the impression of cool style wherever you are.
This little powerhouse also gives impressive audio quality through the 4 watt RMS speakers. Switch between DAB and FM radio, and select the station you want, which is clearly displayed on the 2.8” LCD screen.
The Denver DAB-38 portable digital radio at £49.99 +P&P, in a dark grey or brown wooden vintage design, allows you to switch between DAB and FM radio, scan for, select or preset your stations. It comes with a smart carry handle, DAB+, 4 watt RMS speakers, a 2.8” inch LED screen, dual alarm, snooze and sleep functions, stereo headphone jack and battery back-up.
A classic retro piece of kit that will look great anywhere in the house, but can be taken out to enjoy the sunshine in the garden too.
We hope you’re inspired to get outside and enjoy the flora and fauna, with a little help from your digital radio friend this summer 🙂
