Dig It: Gift-giving for gardeners (10 Dec 2018)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// WRS // By Tay Kinnear // Dec. 10, 2018


With the holidays rapidly approaching and the season of gift-giving almost upon us, we have a collection of fantastic gift ideas for the green-fingered gardener in your life, of maybe just something nice for you. The Swell water bottle covered in Liberty floral print is 50CHF and available from www.rollingrock.ch and at Starbucks in the United States.

The glorious 2019 daily planner from Floret is widely available on-line (eg Amazon) and in store in the US at Target, expect to pay about 20 dollars or sterling. Floret started life as a flower farm, and have a number of excellent books and (rapidly sold-out) courses, and this is part of a new a well-conceived range of paper goods. Check out the website and enjoy the rest of the experience.


Grace Alexander is a florist and instagrammer, and is offering beautiful (and I mean BEAUTIFUL) seed packages for 10 sterling for 5 seed packs. Described on line as "Cut flower seed for growing happiness", they are beautifully packaged and would make a fabulous gift for anyone.  She says on her website "Seeds are the perfect gift for pretty much everyone. Tiny fragments of hope and potential and happiness waiting to happen. And now, finally, these perfect little things are enclosed in packages that do justice to the beauty of their contents. For the gardener in your life, for the person who deserves a treat and to feel loved, for that slightly tricky in-law that you really really want to impress." I couldn't agree more. They can ship within the UK and Europe, but not to Switzerland, yet.
