Gifts for Gardeners

garden2Make no mistake! Gardeners are always thinking about growing!

Christmas gifts for a gardener are always about quality and durability. Spend your money on the best tools, not a plastic handled, thin metal cheep-o. Your gardener will appreciate the quality of Felco Pruners or English made, wooden handled Haws Stainless Steel Garden Fork or Trowel.

Master Gardener Carrie Petty highlights great gifts to show your gardener that you get it! You will really understand their passion for the hobby of gardening! After all, gift-giving is about understanding your recipient fully and showing your love through the thought-out gift that you have selected just for them!

Planning tools and guides are some of the very best gifts for the gardening mindset. Gardeners are always looking for better ways to organize our seeds, sketch out their thoughts or study what grows best in the shade or full sun. Sketchbooks and quality drawing tools are a must, as well as reference books and growing guides! A subscription to the Indiana Gardening Magazine is a gift that is, “Hyper Local” in the words of editor Michelle Walsh. It is a bi-monthly magazine, full of incredible local gardening content!

Carrie Petty is a fourth generation Hoosier, Master Gardener and Garden and Lifestyle Blogger. After a long career in the Corporate & Political world, she’s finally doing what she loves: playing in the dirt.  An amateur naturalist, painter & photographer, Petty loves teaching families how to, “Grow a Beautiful Life.”
