Happy Horticulturists: Great Gifts For Gardeners

Dig deep this Christmas to thrill the plantspeople in your life.

In the wake of industrious autumn, winter offers a quiet spell in the garden. And yet Christmas makes a great time to lavish horticultural gifts upon your dearest green-fingered friends and aspirant gardeners alike. For one thing, it is cheering to think that, even in the soon-to-hit bleak mid-winter, spring is beckoning just around the corner; it will be a matter of a few short weeks before the first cheery blooms poke through the soil. Additionally, good accoutrements for the garden are always winning and welcome; they can be beautiful, useful (William Morris eat your heart out) – and plus our environment will always thank us for our green-fingered efforts too. Here are some of the loveliest gifts for keen gardeners this Christmas.
