Gifting for a Gardener

Christmas is the perfect time to gift gardening essentials to that person in your life who wants to start a garden. What do you get someone who wants to start a garden in December? A lot of veggies are sure to freeze if they get planted in the ground now. We have a gift for everyone at Round Rock Gardens.

The perfect present for someone with a goal of starting a garden would be tools to get started; a shovel, some markers, statuary, garden flags, and pottery. These items don’t have an expiration date and they can be stored away until spring or used immediately with hardy winter vegetables.

Garden tools are always useful to a beginning gardener. Gloves to keep their hands clean, especially if they’re not used to the earthworms yet. Shovels and picks to get through the earth to make their gardening experience easy and relaxing. Along with the garden tools, gift your future gardener some seeds they can plant in the spring. Lettuce, carrots, radishes, and broccoli are great springtime planters. If you’re looking for veggies that won’t freeze in the winter so they can plant them after Christmas, give them onions, garlic, or peas.

Plant markers are very helpful for a beginner gardener to know what plants are planted where. Statuary can be the encouragement to get a garden started. If the person receiving your gift decides they don’t want to start a garden anymore, it can still be placed in their front yard or by the front door of their home. Statuary is a great way to put a smile on someone’s face.

Maybe the person you’re looking to give a gift to doesn’t like gardening outdoors, but they love plants. A dish garden makes a great gift, especially if the gift receiver lives in an apartment or works at an office. Round Rock Garden Center has tons of pottery to choose from when you create your own dish garden. From small to big pots and tropical plants to annuals and perennials. We know you can create a beautiful dish garden for your friend or family member.

If you’d like some guidance on how to make the perfect dish garden, come to Round Rock Garden Canter’s Dish Garden Class this Saturday at 10 a.m. We will give you all the materials you’ll need to make a perfect gift.
