“Tis the season to be shopping”…. It’s time to get in line at 5 am, Google our guts out in a quest to deck the halls and find that perfect gift for the gardener on our list. From start to finish, I have once again compiled a list of gifts that I think every gardener would love. The first gift on the list this year is one that you should give yourself. Fresh holiday greenery will brighten your spirits and enhance the look of your home as you share the season with family and friends. It’s a gift everyone can enjoy!
Holiday Greenery – Everyone loves fresh greenery from the garden to decorate for the holiday. P. Allen Smith has outdone himself with this awesome collection of holiday greenery for indoors and out.
I spotted this wreath from the collection at my local Home Depot Store. Love the burlap ribbon and pine cones on this one. Allen produced a video on keeping your greenery fresh all season long. VIDEO
With several styles to choose from, i’m sure you’ll find one that’s right for your decorating style.
Gardening Gloves –
As a rose gardener my arms bare the scars of a life lived among the roses. It pays to have a great pair of gardening gloves, especially a pair that reaches to your elbows. These gauntlet gloves are goatskin and are tight fitting for excellent gripping power. Order a size larger than you think you’ll need.
Reasonably priced below $40
For those who love roses, we’re either tending the garden or thinking about what we’ll plant next. S & W Greenhouse has an excellent collection of roses for every taste. They even have the first rose being introduced as a part of the Downton Abbey Collection – Anna’s Promise. During the month of December, if you LIKE the S & W Greenhouse Facebook page, you will entered in a drawing for $25 gift certificate each week and also in a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to be given away when they reach 500 likes.
