Clothes and Accessories
Whether it’s a pair of wellington boots, overalls or a jacket, having a special set of clothes to garden in that isn’t just some old clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty can make the whole thing seem less of a chore and more like something you enjoy. Find a jumper that matches their personality, this Hoe Hoe Hoe Christmas sweatshirt would be the ideal gift to make their gardening days even better.
Sometimes it’s the maintenance of the plants that can be the hardest thing about keeping up appearances in our gardens, even for the most avid of gardeners it can still be tedious ensuring that each of their plants has had enough water. A self-watering planter could be the ideal gift this Christmas, taking the hassle out of watering and ensure the plants are taken care of for up to twelve weeks. They also come in a range of colours and designs, just like ordinary planters, offering a design that suits everyone and the look that each individual goes for in their garden.
To make their garden extra special all year around, subtle pieces of art work might be the perfect addition, and these could make the perfect gift. Whether it’s a vintage sign that you think would fit in perfectly amongst the shrubbery, or even a statue or something more elaborate to make their Christmas all the more special, knowing that they can enjoy their garden even in the colder weather.
