4. Cool tool apron

Having a gardening apron has two major perks: 1.) protecting the clothing from dirt and plant stains, 2.) safely carry tools within reach. This might be something that your green finger friend has in their wish list, or an item you need to buy for yourself!

5. Handy-dandy basket

Avid gardeners could use a basket for harvesting or keep all their supplies organised in one place (if an apron won’t suffice). Or you can use it to combine all your gifts and have the ultimate gardener’s gift basket.

6. Water feature

Water elements stand out against the greenery and foliage. A single fountain, for one, can draw the eye, while providing a self-sustaining ecosystem for a variety of nature and wildlife.

7. Solar garden stake

Now going more high-tech, solar-powered stakes make an excellent addition to yards. Not only can they light up the garden and make it look more attractive at night, but also they are environmentally-friendly.

The latter benefit is something that many gardeners endeavour. You know what to do!

8. Decorative terracotta pots

Perfect for indoor and outdoor gardening, terracotta pots are wonderful staples in cultivation. Even better, they give off that distinguished look, making them ideal for adding aesthetics. A plus for green-fingered Brits!

9. Garden cushion kneelers

As the name suggests, this item helps lower the body to the ground and provides a cushioned site for the knees. The added support it provides will surely be appreciated by the person you’re giving the gift to.

10. Greenhouse

Valuable and investment-worthy are what describe greenhouses, be it portable or an outbuilding. On top of providing an ideal environment for the plants, a greenhouse also adds value to the garden and overall property.

It’s an excellent gift to get for plant parents, or even for yourself!
