‘Tis the season for giving, so why not put a green twist on your festive shopping? 

Shower your favourite gardener with simple delights like a shiny new gardening tool or a few seed packs or personalise a hamper to make the gift extra special. 

Here are the types of gardeners you can buy for:

Beginners

If you know anyone who’s just discovered their green fingers, or who has a New Year Resolution to spend more time in the garden, give the essentials to get their gardens thriving. We recommend a garden spade, a hand rake, and a garden hose or watering can. Finish it off with compost or potting mix and aromatic flowers or herbs seeds, as these make for an easy introduction to gardening.

Green gardeners

Eco-friendly gardeners love indigenous plants, which attract bees and require less maintenance and water. So, get them seeds for plants, flowers, herbs and vegetables, as well as the 12 Pod Universal Seed Starter Kit to help the seedlings flourish. 

If their garden’s already full of indigenous plants, help them save water with Garden Master’s 500L rainwater harvesting tank. This new product makes it easy to collect and store rain, and it looks great in the garden too. It’s the perfect choice for gardeners who are green at heart.

Glamorous gardeners

Playing in the dirt doesn’t mean you have to look shabby. Durable gloves will keep gardeners’ hands safe and clean. You can also introduce other gardening accessories, like decorative fencing, to keep their garden looking as stylish as they do.

Garden gurus

If they’re already growing more plants than you can name, and have more tools than you can count, why not spoil them with a 4-tier walk-in greenhouse? 

This gift is perfect for gardeners who love their plants and want to go the extra mile to protect them and help them flourish. The walk-in greenhouse is designed for temporary seasonal storage of seedlings, herbs, plants and flowers. 

To add that personal touch, you can easily and secretly assemble it yourself and place it in their garden and surprise them on Christmas Day! Make sure you choose a sheltered location in their garden to prevent wind and rain affecting the greenhouse cover.

Garden chefs

If they love cooking as much as gardening, they’ll be thrilled with herb seeds such as rosemary, oregano, basil and thyme. Spice things up by placing your choice of herb seeds, a pruner, spritzer and brightly-coloured pots along with organic potting soil in a sizeable basket, which they can use to gather their freshly-picked herbs. Alternatively, you can purchase a range of fresh herbs, to spruce up their Christmas feast.
