Shopping for Mother’s Day has never been easier. When your mom is a gardener, there are so many suitable gifts.
An assortment of seeds from Renee’s Garden would be a great way for your mother to get the new gardening season off to a good start. For container gardens, Renee’s has some wonderful new varieties. These include Junior Container Sunflower, which is only 2½ feet tall, and Bush Slicer Container Cucumber. Quick maturing, these cucumber plants are resistant to disease. Renee’s also has a new basil for containers. Italian Cameo Large Leaf Container Basil is noted for its large, tender foliage. The plants are very productive and compact.
If you mom has container gardens, choices abound. Make it easy by giving the new Jobes Crystals. With this product, you’re adding a slow release fertilizer that also acts as moisture retaining crystals, which can reduce the frequency of watering.
Flower pots of all sorts make wonderful gifts for Mother’s Day. There are several newer space-saving or stacking pot systems now on the market. For small gardens, these are ideal.
Help your mother give her indoor pots a new look. It is easy with the new Plant Suits. These are reversible fabric pot covers that come in various colors and sizes. Buy an assortment of the covers so she can mix and match as she sees fit.
For those with container gardens, a supply of soilless potting mix makes a very useful gift. There is a type to suit every sort of plant. For example, I’ve seen orchid mix and cactus mix, which has everything the gardener needs.
Gardening kits of all sorts make very welcome gifts for Mother’s Day. There is one to suit every taste, including a Salsa Garden Kit.
To help your mother organize her garden records, she needs some sort of easy to use filing system. Galison has just the thing. New for spring are their Pretty File Totes, which are to die for. Gorgeous enough to keep anywhere in the home, gardeners no longer have an excuse for being so disorderly. This heavy duty file tote has an easy to use die cut handle and an elastic closure. It opens to expand accordion style, making lots of room available for storing garden files, garden seeds, and the like.
Nearly a foot in length and width, the Pretty Tote File contains eight dividers with a set of 16 matching labels. Be sure and buy a coordinating set of the file folders for the style you have chosen. The Pretty File Tote comes in two floral styles. Meadowsweet has a lovely coral pink background, attractively decorated with foliage. William Morris Clover has pink blooms and dark green foliage on a light green background.
Galison also has a delightful large accordion organizer that would also make a great Mother’s Day gift. These are suitable for organizing garden clippings, notes, records, seeds, and the like. My favorite is the William Morris Lily. But, the Bamboo Garden is also very lovely as well. This roomy organizer is nearly seven by nine inches with six accordion dividers. This contains a refillable notepad and an elastic pencil holder in the inside spine. On the outside of the organize
