The Jardin collection forms part of Tesco's new premium Fox & Ivy homeware brand – which we'll be sharing more of with you very soon.

Next, and staying with the floral theme, what is there not to love about this stunning Woodland Walk print radio? We honestly had to do a double take when we saw where this design was from. It looks like a designer piece – a compliment to the design team, we assure you!

The retro radio features modern metallic finishing touches on the control dials and aerial, which beautifully enhance the painterly floral pattern on the casing.

Not only does it look divine the price tag is music to our ears – sorry, couldn't resist – at only £40! It Just goes to show the supermarket is the place to unearth some real treasures.

Whether you're living in a small space or simply not looking to invest in a big piece of furniture, then George can come to the rescue. Maybe all you need is a small table to pop a cuppa on while you watch TV. Or perhaps you'd like to lay out some nibbles for guests. Either way, this nifty, fashionable fold-away table is just the thing.

The table is inexpensive and oh-so practical because it can be folded and stored away out of sight when not needed. Our personal favourite for the new season is the muted blue shade, but it's also available in additional white and grey colour ways. You could even mix and match the full set.

Buy now: Folding Table, £19, George Home
