Gardeners Gift Guide: Father’s Day
Are you thinking of buying yet another pair of socks this Father’s Day? Think again. With summer just around the corner there are a number of gardening gift ideas that are sure to be a stellar choice for your dad come Sunday 21 June. If he loves the great outdoors, treat him to one of these handy horticultural gifts…
For the more creative dad, Topiary is a fun and thoughtful gift idea. Depending on his handiness level, choose a ready-made Topiary Cube, Spiral or Ball for beginners, or a Photinia Topiary Tree for the more advanced gardener, ready to be pruned into any imaginative shape. It will liven up the garden, whilst keeping your dad busy for a while…
Fruit trees not only look spectacular, but also serve a practical purpose that tends to the grow-your-own trend. If your dad’s a dab hand in the kitchen, a fruit tree could be a show-stopping addition to his garden. Whether Conference Pears, Bramley Apples or Stella Cherries, there’s a tree to suit all tastes, and budgets.
If your dad is more of a floral fan, you can’t go wrong with Lavender. The deep purple flowers attract bees and butterflies to the garden, whilst giving off a sweet scent for year-round interest. Discover different variations on the nation’s favourite flower, and choose from English, French or Lavender hedging.
Birds and Berries
Not everyone has the patience to bird watch, but if your dad likes to share his knowledge of each and every species, berry hedges are the perfect way to invite feathered friends into your garden. Some of our berry hedges are edible too, so your dad can have a go at making such culinary delights as elderberry cordial, berry jam or crab apple jelly.
