Gardening Gifts

Garden Sculpture at Tucson’s Sam Hughes Historic District by UGArdener

The holidays are coming. The perfect gift, that something special, is being searched for in stores. What to buy your gardening friends or ask someone to get for you or when you write to Santa, that is the problem.

Well, the first thing you might think of is a special plant. Generally perennial plants are not really sold at this time of year in local nurseries because the nurseries are filled to the brim with Holiday plants. So consider a plant gift certificate from a favorite nursery.  Cricket Hill, the nursery that sells peonies, says they are giving 10% off if you use Use code GIFT10 at checkout to save 10% off all gift certificates.

How about a nice planter or sculpture for a garden? If you want something that is eco friendly, check out the products on this site.  I like some of their pebble stools. Or how about lighted planters for the garden?
Or if you are looking for some garden decor that is more unique, something handmade by artisans or are vintage items for the garden, check out the garden items at a website called Etsy.

A website for ideas on garden decor is this.

Don’t forget shopping your local hardware store for a special tool the gardener might not want to treat him/her self to.

I personally like Florian tools and treat myself to one each year.

And don’t forget your handicapped gardening friends. There are tools that are ergonomically designed tools for these friends. (see here)

Last, but not least, think of the future gardener, the child in your life who might want to spend time helping you garden or have his or her own garden. There are places that sell good gardening tools for this young set.  (see here)
