Beginner Gardener Essential Gift
Sometimes new gardeners like to start small. So lets start with the basics. Scooping compost out of compost bags can make gardening very messy with it spilling off the trowel so a Bamboo Scoop is a must for any new gardener. This wonderful olive-green compost scoop will make the process simpler and far less messy. Better still, the Bamboo Scoop is made from sustainable bamboo and is biodegradable and compostable after use. Fill it with some choccies, wrap and you have the perfect secret Santa gift right there!
Stocking Fillers For Garden Lovers
Soft Tie is a perfect little stocking filler. Soft-Tie's inner core of galvanised steel wire gives it strength, and the outer coating of UV-stabilised rubber compound cushions and protects plant stems.
It may seem on the tame side as Christmas gifts go but this long-lasting, rot proof, gardening 'must have' will come in useful time and time again. It is easy to use with just a twist (no need for fiddly knots)) and can be washed and re-used. It has a hundred other uses that they will discover once they own some.
Rootrainers are the secret that the gardening trade have been keeping.
Environmentally-conscious gardeners who are well into their herb growing, these bamboo Plant markers are a thoughtful and handy present.
Like the Scoop, the Bamboo Plant Markers are made from sustainable bamboo and are biodegradable and compostable after use.
Another great little stocking filler - Bamboo Widgers and Dibbers are those essential tools that every gardener needs. These are also made from sustainable bamboo and a natural resin. The widger is ideal for pricking out plants and seedlings, while the dibber is crafted to be perfect for planting seeds or bulbs. It can be pressed into or dragged through the earth to create ideal holes or trenches and is marked with a measuring scale on its main stem so that holes and trenches can be made the ideal depth.
Small Presents For Day to Day Gardening
