Fireworks in Humberside

While November 5th is the night for fireworks, it is also a great month to get all your garden waste together and having a big, cheerful bonfire with family and friends. Now if you’re wondering where to get everything you need for your November 5th celebrations, including all types of fireworks, firelighters and incinerators, then take a minute or two to visit The Garden Centre Guide. It’s a simple matter of checking for garden centres in your area, browse through what they have to offer for your fireworks celebration and then shop for what you want right there, online. 

Safety tips for bonfires and garden fireworks displays
 

Bonfires

Anything woody can be used for your bonfire, including hedge and rose prunings and weeds such as ground elder and bindweed. Since the ash from your bonfire is loaded with potash, put it into your compost bin and give your garden an enormous boost the following year. 

However, if you have already been collecting garden refuse for your bonfire, remember that snakes, toads, or hedgehogs might have settled underneath the heap of garden refuse for winter, so move the pile to a different site to avoid harming them. Also, be considerate of your neighbours and make sure that the smoke from your bonfire doesn’t blow in their direction. It’s against the law to do this anyway.
 

Fireworks displays

A garden fireworks display is magical for both children and adults. However, if you do not have a large garden where you can have at least 25 metres between the fireworks and your friends and family, there are certain safety measures that must be adhered to, such as:

  • All fireworks, if not used correctly, can cause serious burns and injuries, so take the same precautionary measures with whichever type you decide to buy for your garden display
  • Make sure that your fireworks can’t fall over by pushing them part way into the ground if the instruction label calls for this
  • Children should under no circumstances be allowed to handle or play near fireworks
  • Make sure that you are lighting them the correct way up
  • Don’t leave open or uncovered boxes of unused fireworks close to your display area
  • Avoid the temptation to show off by holding any fireworks when lighting them, even the smallest ones
  • Keep a first aid kit and a bucket of water handy. People are sometimes complacent with fireworks, which will result in injuries!
  • Unless you have a large enough garden and are compliant with the safety requirements for large, elaborate display fireworks, do not be tempted to use them to impress your small audience!

With the right fireworks purchased through The Garden Centre Guide, the right attitude and the right safety measures, you and your family and friends will be able to enjoy a fantastic fireworks display in your garden. If you don’t have a compost bin in your garden, why not buy one through the Garden Centre Guide too and save the ashes from this year’s fireworks display to help the plants in your garden grow to the lush and thriving plants you want them to be, next year?
