December 24, 2016 - garden totes
Do we adore to garden? If so, we substantially value gardening-related gifts. If we do not garden, however, we substantially have no thought what a gardener would appreciate. Here are a few suggestions over trowels and pruners:
A garden biography creates a smashing present for those that like to take note of what is growing. There are even garden journals that embody an area for photos, that we privately find really helpful.
Forcing bulbs to freshness are a plea and pleasure to gardeners. Amaryllis are a common tuber forced during winter, though for something a small different, try giving hyacinth bulbs. Amaryllis are forced in pots, while hyacinth bulbs can be forced in water. There are special hyacinth tuber forcing vases for this. These tuber forcing vases can be really inexpensive, though there are also antique hand-blown tuber forcing vases that might turn a start of a pleasing collection.
If we are meddlesome in giving something some-more practical, try a kneeling pad. There are kneeling pad/bench combinations that are useful. A compost screw sounds like a present no one would want, though if your garden crony is into composting, it will be appreciated. Canvas apparatus totes are intensely available for gardeners, as are collect baskets and garden carts.
Plants are always appreciated. Try giving an surprising houseplant, such as Tillandsia, Venus fly-trap, or flowering mill (Lithops). If we wish to abate a mood, chia pets can be fun to give. If a gardener does not like residence plants, try giving magician hazel, hellebore, camellia, or rosemary. Of course, a plant will be most some-more appreciated if we take a time and difficulty to plant it for a gardener. If a garden is full, these plants can be grown in pots.
Most gardeners like to review about gardening. Henderson County Master Gardener Association is offered gardening books created by best-selling author Amy Stewart. Contact us during a series or email below, and we will be happy to fill your order.
Other ideas include: ceramic or terra cotta pots, unresolved baskets, garden benches, statuary, and a ever-appreciated present label to a favorite nursery.
