Holiday Gift Guide
My personal favorites are from the ARS brand. The Needle Nose is great for flowers and anything with thinner stems. For thicker stems and branches, I reach for my Pruning Shears. Click on the names for the link - both can be found on Amazon. There are many look-a-likes but trust me, quality matters here!
Anytime I head to the garden, I have a toolbelt on or I'm regretting that I don't have my toolbelt on. I've been eyeing this one from Floret - made of real leather, has holders for both types of snips, and is all around sleek and beautiful. If the gardener in your life loves to harvest, they'll love this!
Winter is the perfect time to catch up on reading and plan for spring...or simply dream of once again being surrounded by fresh-cut flowers and home-grown produce. Luckily a few of the greats have shared their how-to's along with gorgeous photos that you could get lost in for hours: Lisa Ziegler's Vegetables Love Flowers, Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden, and Charles Dowding's No Dig are a great addition to anyone's bookshelf.
For those that love to be in the garden, winter can be rough. Giving them something to tend to indoors can help scratch that itch until spring comes again. Our Potted Amaryllis will bloom for 6-8 weeks, give them something to tend to (although it's a fairly forgiving plant), and add a little beauty in their lives throughout the winter season.
This trend isn't going away. More stuff seems to be the last thing anyone wants in their home. Clutter leads to stress and eventually, unnecessary waste. Gifting an experience is the perfect way to avoid the fuss and creates long lasting memories they'll treasure. We offer this in many forms...it's kind of our thing: Bouquet Subscriptions that will provide precious moments of calm and sanctuary week after week (and allow their flowers to stay in the garden!), Private U-picks to surround yourself and loved ones with flowers while you take in the sights, the smells, and the sounds of nature (no, it's not too early to plan and reserve your date!), and we even have Gift Cards available if you're not quite sure which one is just right.
