It’s Mother’s Day at the end of the month, March 26th to be precise – a time to show Mum your love and appreciation in the best possible way. So if Mum loves nothing better than planting up the borders, nurturing the roses or tending her veg patch why not treat her to one of our beautiful gardening gifts.
During the next couple of weeks we’ll guide you to finding Mum the perfect Mother’s Day Garden Gift – one that will make her smile and last a little longer than a bunch of flowers.
Firstly let’s take a look at garden tools. March is the time of year when all gardeners are venturing into the shed to dust off their gardening tools only to discover perhaps that they are a little past their best or even missing altogether later in the season to be found looking a little charred in the depths of the bonfire ( Yes I confess I have done that quite a lot!)
So why not update or replace your Mum’s favourite, but maybe long past their use date, garden tools??
If Mum is a fan of pink then Burgon & Ball’s Rosa Chinensis hand tools or secateurs will fit the bill perfectly. Beautifully presented in illustrated gift boxes these pink handled tools are of extremely high quality. If, however, Mum has a tendency to forget where she last laid the trowel how about the new Florabrite range – bright pink tools with flourescent handles which stand out amongst the shrubbery and glow in the torch light.
Our V&A Garden Tool Sets feature chintzy prints and will delight all William Morris fans – who can forget the iconic William Morris wallpapers of old with some designs still going strong today. Each of these trowel & handfork sets or secateurs come prettily packaged ready for giving.
For Mums with a plethora of indoor plants the gorgeous Fauna and Flora or Passiflora Watering Cans are a delight and as useful in the greenhouse as in the home. Plus to keep Mums busy in the greenhouse Sophie Conran’s Potting Sieve is a great addition to the tool box. It finely sifts compost over seeds, has a slightly smaller handle so is perfect for women and comes gift boxed too.
We hope one of these gorgeous ladies garden tools is the perfect gardening gift for your mum this Mother’s Day.
