Shopping for Mom? Here are some great gift ideas for Mother’s Day:
Gift Cards: If your mother would like to purchase a pretty plant for the yard or house, or a nice garden or home decor item, we have Gift Cards available online. A great gift for the gardening Mother.
A ‘Mother’s Day’ Azalea: Rounded habit, 4′ x 4′ spread. Evergreen. Red flowers in May. Burgundy fall and winter foliage.
A Succulent Container: These cute, easy-care containers can go just about anywhere and look fantastic. They just sit there nicely being adorable, and are easy to hand over to someone as a tidy gift on the go.
Posie Pots: A nice gift is a sweet little posie pot. These are small, ceramic, water-holding vases with several small holes. You can take an assortment of seasonal cuttings from your garden, and arrange them into layered bouquets. Twigs, leaves, flowers, berries – all the posies of the season – can be placed on an office desk, in a guest room, or by your bedside – a little bit of prettiness to enjoy as the posies appear weekly.
A May-Flowering Perennial or Shrub: You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t like sweet-smelling Roses, Peonies or Lilacs — all in bloom during May. And you can try to find a variety with her name in it too.
A Hanging Annuals Basket: Geraniums, Gerber Daisies, Begonias, Fuchsias, Petunias – assorted annuals in her favorite colors. Who wouldn’t be happy with that?
A Mixed Herb Container: For the mother who likes to garden or cook, you could select some commonly used garden herbs and put them together in a little mixed container for her. She can pull fresh basil, rosemary, thyme, sage, cilantro… right there in the kitchen, or from her own yard. Yum!
A Houseplant: Begonias, Swedish Ivy, Oxalis… you name it. A pretty indoor plant with color and detail is always a nice addition to a cozy home, and lasts longer than a bouquet.
Dried Lavender Sachets: You can tuck these sachets under a pillow to smell while sleeping. Or put it in the drawer with nightgowns and pajamas. Pretty dreamy!
A Good-Quality Gardening Tool: We have professional-grade pruners, snips, trowels, weeders, and more. These tools can be resharpened and used for a lifetime, so you don’t have to keep replacing them every season.
