A trellis extends the growing surface for climbing plants, without the need to affix and hardware to walls or fences. This one can be used indoors or outdoors and sits cleverly inside the pot to train your greenery upwards and outwards. Pick one up at either Ikea or Bunnings.

This might seem too simple but having your hose stored neatly and close at hand to your garden will encourage you to water it more often. Rather than lugging a hose from a distance this hook can be mounted wherever needed, or fitted to your tap for neat storage. Grab it from Big W for $4.
