Herb Gardening Gift Ideas

October 23, 2008

Someone just asked me what my daughter wanted for christmas.  I’ve been trying to push the thought of christmas and present buying to the back of my mind and plan to make a few more gifts this year but I thought it might be useful for any herb lovers/soon to be herbaholics/gardeners to have a few ideas of what is available at the moment for your own wish list or ideas for the gardeners in your life.

1.  If you want to get your seeds organised for the spring then head over to the Garden Seed Organiser, this seed organiser has a pocket for every month of the year and each
pocket can contain between 10-12 packets of seeds. When you have made
your first sowing, just move your remaining seeds to the month when you
intend to make your next sowing. Here’s their detailed description of the product:

“The 12 monthly
pockets marked January through to December allows seed storage in
chronological sowing order in a safe and secure conditions.

The retail value of the seeds alone is
at least £26.78 – we know how much gardeners love value for money.

have carefully selected our range of seeds to make sure there is
something to sow for every month of the year. The range includes:
herbs, vegetables, salads and flowers for both cutting and borders. We
are confident that this range with appeal to both the novice and the
seasoned enthusiast”

2.  If you’d like to give an instant herb garden to a friend, Rocket Gardens have a large range available some suitable for larger gardens and some suitable for a windowsill herb garden (they also supply vegetable and other plants).  You choose a product and arrange for the voucher to be sent to you or direct to the recipient of the gift.  They can then send off for the plants when they are ready to receive them, possibly in the spring time.

3.  Plants4Presents can supply plants for cooks eg bay tree, curry plants, kaffir lime, chilli plants and a large range of citrus trees.  You can even buy a pyramid bay tree already decorated for christmas with hand made dried fruit decorations.

4. For a high quality gift with a wow factor there is a large range of foodie and plant presents available at Glut, they have just launched a corporate gift service website too.

5.  Greenfingers also have a large range of christmas gardening products including herb pots, wooden herb wheels, mugs, lights and more.

6.  The Worm That Turned have some cute pocket herb gardens, grow in a bag herbs, wooden trugs to carry your herbal harvest and various herb pots amongst many other unusual and interesting products.

7.  The Recycle Works has a fantastic range of gardening products including a Plug and Grow Horticultural Light for growing plants in your kitchen, garage, greenhouse or shed  – first time I’ve seen one of these.

8.  Top Topiary have an amazing variety of topiary trees including bay, box, citrus, olive including a bonsai olive tree!

9.  Amazon of course have a huge range of gifts; books, herb wheels, herb pots, herb choppers and more.  You might like this Herbal Journal Calendar or this illustrated Herbal Calendar which has notes about gardening, cooking and crafting with herbs on it.

10.  Ebay also have plenty of herb seeds, planters and gifts.

11.  A long lasting unusual gift can be purchased from Bloomingdirect.com who have a range of subscription gifts ranging from a year round salad club to pampering & gifts club.

If you find this useful I can do an update every few weeks as new products become available. Just leave me a comment below.
