A gardener's Christmas wishlist
Gardeners tend to have firm ideas about what should be in their Christmas stockings. Don't worry: we know exactly what they'll love. Here's a selection of gifts from our garden centre to delight the gardener in your life:
Terracotta rhubarb forcers: every gardener covets one of these elegant Victorian clay pots, even if they don't grow rhubarb, as they look so gorgeous.
Wooden plant labels: perfect stocking fillers, plants will never be named so handsomely. Natural-looking, they blend unobtrusively into the background.
Seeds: Choose a selection from mouthwatering heritage vegetables to pretty annuals in our garden centre, and add a handsome vintage seedbox to keep them in.
Garden planners: Gardeners are always coming up with new ideas and making notes. Handy folders and journals keep it all in one place.
Something for a rainy day: When winter weather forces a gardener to down tools, a good gardening book makes up for the disappointment. All this year's new gardening books are here in our garden centre.
Toasty feet: Welly socks stay up, and keep your toes warm and dry even when you're trudging through wind and rain to the compost heap.
Please ask the staff in our Swarkestone garden centre for more information and advice about perfect Christmas presents for gardeners.
