You still got a few weeks before the holidays to find that perfect gift for the gardener in your life. Gardeners don’t just love plants, they also need garden accessories and tools for taking care of those plants. Somethings, like spades and gardening gloves, gardeners can never have to many. Gardeners who garden often will go through a good pair of gardening gloves in less than a year.
Also consider some holiday themed gifts. It’s still not too late to get those amaryllis bulbs to force for holiday decorating. But hurry, most varieties need at least six weeks to bloom. Other house plants and container plants also make great gifts. I’ve often found that the more exotic plants, the citrus trees and tropical plants that aren’t typical houseplants make the best gifts because they are more interesting.
I may try to focus on more specific gift ideas as the holidays approach. But if you are planning on ordering your gift online, you should order soon to ensure that your gifts are in stock and ship in time for the holidays.
