Stuck for Christmas gift ideas for the gardener in your life? Here are five gardening gift ideas for inspiration.
1. Sack of vegies! You’ll reap the rewards for seasons to come!
Put down the shovel and grab one of these! Portable hessian grow-bag is perfect for small courtyard gardens or for a first-time grower. What you’ll need is a hessian bag (you can pick up a large potato sack from hardware stores). Fill it with potting mix, select vegie seeds or flowers of your choice and sow. Personalise it with a nice message, using a stencil and a permanent black marker.
Seed sprouting units give you a continuous supply of fresh sprouts to complement any salad! Multi-tiered units can be used for different beans or legumes. Simply choose your favourites and fill each tray, then stack and water! Too easy!
The super pruner
Give your muscles a break when pruning with Fiskars special edition 365 Titanium Pruners. Launched to celebrate the Finnish company’s 365th anniversary of producing lightweight tools, the manufacturer says the pruners are designed to reduce tension while providing three times more cutting power than traditional pruners.
Gift a bit of zen with a wind chime
There’s nothing quite like the sound of a wind chime on a breezy day. Calm and uplifting, wind chimes offer a peaceful respite from the fast-paced, hectic world. Relax to the sounds of the free-flowing monophonic tones, whilst kicking back on the sun lounge with your favourite book.
DIY terrarium kit
Terrariums are so hot right now! Put together a ‘DIY terrarium kit’ by packaging up a terrarium bowl, bonsai potting mix, mini pebbles, horticultural charcoal and some little plants. Add a personal touch by including a letter that incorporates step-by-step instructions, or direct the recipient to a DIY video, such as this one.
