5 Christmas gift ideas for gardeners

Christmas is just around the corner so I thought I’d give you a few gift ideas for people who love their garden…

1. Grow your own kits

Funky veg kit from Not on the high street

Not On The High Street have some great kits for growing you own and I love the idea of this funky veg kit – not sure about the pink carrots, but could be quite fun.


2.  Atlas gloves

I love these gloves and use them all the time.  They’re strong, durable and fit snugly so that you can feel what you’re doing.

They come in a range of colours and are machine washable which means that you’re never without a fresh pair.  They’re not so great for thorny plants, but I think they can be forgiven for that!

I’ve tried alternatives, made from the same material, but have found these to be the best fit.  They are available from many stockists or directly from The Atlas Glove Shop online.


3. Personalised garden journal

This personalised garden journal is also from Not On The High Street.  For really keen gardeners this is a great gift as it enables them to make notes through the seasons and gives them a reference to look back on.


4. Funky secateurs

Colourful secateurs from Sarah Raven

I have no idea if these secateurs from Sarah Raven are any good, but I love the fact that they’re available in bright colours.  You certainly wouldn’t lose them easily!


5. Feed the birds in style

I think this cone-shaped bird feeder from Cox and Cox is gorgeous.  I’m not sure how squirrel-proof it would be, but it’s stylish and elegant and very attractive to look at.

Pod tents by Unidome

I recently came across these very funky outdoor domes.  I love the versatility of them and, because they’re classed as semi-permanent structures, there’s no requirement to apply for planning permission before erection. Read more

Alitex greenhouses and conservatories

A couple of weeks ago I visited the Alitex factory and showroom near Petersfield in Hampshire.  I can think of worse places to work, they’re right on the edge of the South Downs so the surrounding countryside is gorgeous. Read more

Alfresco bespoke fire

I came across Alfresco Fires in a recent edition of the Garden Design Journal and thought they’d be great for enabling outdoor living on those chillier days.  We cook on our BBQ all the time, even in winter, so I’d love something a little bit more permanent. Read more

Garden furniture – something a bit different from Garpa

I always know when summer is around the corner because I start to receive the latest furniture catalogues.  I suspect that most companies are keeping everything crossed that the weather will be kind enough to allow people to sit outside in the garden this year! Read more
