Gifts for a gardener
Eco friendly gifts for the keen gardener
From hand-forged copper hand forks to marbleised cement planters,
all of these gifts belong to the genre of "buy quality, buy once",
because each is beautifully and thoughtfully made with a small eco foot print.
The copper fork, fabulously colourful hose and broadfork tools are all made in Australia,
while the animal-free rose pruning gloves are such superb quality that
we wish we had discovered them years earlier.
And after gardening, there is no better treat for hands than a luxuriously rich
hand cream made from botanical ingredients. Not tested on animals & free of animal products,
the Deodora Hand Balm from Vere has become our absolute favourite hand cream.
Or perhaps a gift of seeds,
in their own beautifully crafted bio-degradable gift pack,
may just tick the box for a gardening friend.
Forget me knots are one of those charming old-fashioned plants,
and most gardeners would be happy to find a little corner for them.
(Other varieties of seeds available in similarly lovely "pot packets"
include Billy Buttons, herbs, Kangaroo Paws
& seed mixes selected to encourage butterflies.)
So if you know a keen gardener, consider gifting them quality tools
beautiful gardening books, or seeds - because there is no happiness like the joy of a garden.
