The Urban Gardener's guide to gifts that keep on giving

The Urban Gardener's guide to gifts that keep on giving

Gift-giving is a satisfying way to show the people in your life that you care about them and dates back to the dawn of time when gifts were made of bark and wood! Today, we ring in birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and a whole lot of memorable occasions by exchanging gifts. 

A message  is conveyed in your choice of gift and let's face it, it's increasingly more difficult to find gifts for folk who already have so much. In these days of sustainable choices the gift that keeps on giving is a far better choice than those that have a limited life-span, are of poor quality or bring no enhancement to the giftee's life.

THE GIFT OF GROWING

Plants make the best gifts or at the very least, the gift of something that makes the growing of a garden or plant achievable! Too many of us have been deeply intimidated by the prospect of plant care when the reality is often as simple as a calendar reminder on our phones and a splash of water once a week.

What plants give us in return is priceless: tranquility and ambience to our homes, a calming reminder to slow down, and an appreciation for the small things. 

The Gift Of Grow

We have the perfect gifts that keep on giving - either potted up for your giftee with love and patience and presented as a package set for gardening success or as packs for the would be gardener. Our Grow Packs are one of the most hardy, sustainable gifts you can find!

So let your imagination take you to gift-giving joy - give the gift of a potted succulent, an ornamental shrub, a citrus tree, potted herbs or gift a unique grow pack to the Green or wannabe Green Thumb...and all come with a method to take the guesswork out of watering.

HOUSEPLANT HAVEN PACK

The pack that makes for happy houseplants. Comprised of a pack of Waterpot Spikes which ensure small potted plants receive the right amount of water, an indestructible aluminium alloy narrow trowel and the organic Munash Foliage Spray. Comes with instructions.

Give as a complete pack to the plantaholic or install the spikes in plants that you pot up yourself for gifts - super easy and one of a kind!

Grow Blueberries on Your Balcony

Who doesn't like Blueberries - but have you ever tried Blueberries straight off the shrub? That waxy, silvery-white "bloom," a sign of freshness and the "snap" of the taut skin as you bite into the juicy flesh is nothing like those soggy soft punnetted berries in the shops! If you’re a lover of fresh blueberries, spring is a great time to plant your own bush. And you don’t need to have a large garden – they grow just perfectly in pots.
