There may be some flower gardeners on your gift list this December, and if so I can assure you, they love flower-related offerings.

From tools to tulips, there are so many gift ideas for gardeners. They will love it all.

There may be some flower gardeners on your gift list this December, and if so I can assure you, they love flower-related offerings.

  • Flower enthusiasts love holiday gift certificates so that they can dream all winter about the plants they can buy.
  • They also love Amaryllis and Paperwhite bulbs to grow indoors during the winter.
    Fresh bouquets are also cherished at this time of the year.
  • One of my dearest friends sends me a dozen roses, and when they are delivered a week before Christmas each year, I luxuriate in them and her generosity, and the predictability adds to the pleasure.
  • In my opinion, the very best gardening trowel in the world is Walt Nicke’s #202 Stainless Steel digger trowel.  Look on the web at www.gardentalk.com to order this durable tool.  The mud gloves available from Walt Nicke are also a perfect gift.
  • If you browse through the magazine racks at local bookstores you will also find a wide selection of garden magazines to choose for gift subscriptions for flower gardeners.
  • Books on flowers and gardening, Gardener’s Latin, and encyclopedias of plants are also good choices.
  • And no flower enthusiast ever has enough vases, or small antique bottles to hold tiny blooms are especially good prizes.
