Gifts for a gardener


Eco friendly gifts for the keen gardener

No 1 // No 2 // No 3 // No 4 // No 5 // No 6 // No 7 // No 8

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. 

Weeds are flowers too,
once you get to know them.
