|Some Christmas gift ideas from 'the trug of plenty' ;)|
Windowsill chilli growing kit
A pocket money gift idea
Suitable for medium-hot spicy food lovers or those with little GYO space
Contains everything needed - just add water
The container and lid form the growing pot and drip tray, though you might want to add a nicer pot for a more stylish gift
A new idea from Hen and Hammock
Made in Shropshire from oak
Ideal for gardeners who do a lot of potting on, or marking out rows for sowing e.g salad leaves
The back of the dribber can be used for tamping down compost
Plant families card game
A fun game derived from Happy Families
Also teaches the binomial naming system devised by Linnaeus
A total of 36 plants from 9 different plant families are illustrated
The beautiful drawings are also suitable for framing
I found these when visiting Chelsea Physic Garden last year and couldn't resist!
Bosch Keo cordless multisaw
Ideal gift for the gadget minded gardener
Uses a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery
Comes with a saw blade suitable for cutting wood. Other blades for plaster board and metal are available
With the guard removed, I've found it ideal for awkward places where it's difficult to use my usual pruning saw
Look out for pre-Christmas special offers
Other gift ideas included in my trug are Ethel gloves for the most glove-aphobic, Felco secateurs and garden gift vouchers. In previous years I've also enjoyed some Pink, Pink Sunshine from my niece and nephew, plus a Brother garden labeller.
Disclosure: all items were donated for review purposes except for the plant families card game, felco secateurs (which I won), the garden gift vouchers (a present I'm always happy to receive) and the pink hyacinths from my niece and nephew. The trug is my own and would also make a nice gift!
What would you choose?
