Mother’s Day Ideas Straight from the Garden

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to thank all the moms in your life; whether it’s a sister, aunt, grandmother, friend, or actually your mom for all they do throughout the year. If that mom happens to enjoy ‘growing their own’ why not give them a gardening gift to make their garden tasks even more enjoyable!

Gardeners love to receive plants and flowers that they can enjoy throughout the season. A potted plant combined with garden gloves, spade, pruners or water can makes a great gift for any mom.

Remember when giving live plants they don’t just have to be house plants and flowers, another great plant choice is a living tree. When giving the gift of a live tree you are giving a gift to be enjoyed by generations. Make sure to do a little research before purchasing, you will want to pick the best tree for her property. No room for a tree? Try giving a perennial bush or shrub like a rose bush. Roses are beautiful bushes the repeat bloom and are perfect for cutting and displaying in the home. Now you can give the gift of live trees or roses no matter the distance between you and your mom. New Growth Trees will ship year-round to anywhere in the U.S in a specially-designed gift box with personal message.

If your mom is no longer a spring chicken think about getting her an elevated garden bed to help her garden without the back breaking pain. The Gronomics line of elevated garden beds are made from 100% cedar and feature tool free assembly to get her back to gardening in minutes!

Another helpful gardening accessory is a potting bench. Potting benches keep all your gardening gear at your fingertips, with places for tools, soil, pots and more. Some benches like the Garden Center Potting Bench even include planting space!

If the mom in your life just talks about gardening more than doing it give her no more excuses! Our line of garden kits includes everything she needs to get started growing her own vegetables and fruits. If she has no yard our container garden kits featuring Smart Pots and the Earth Box are the perfect solution

Just because the mother in your life enjoys gardening doesn’t mean she neglects style in the garden. There are tons of stylish gardening products perfect for the garden lover in your life. Laura Ashley has beautiful wellington boots that are water proof, durable and pretty. The Garden for a Cause tool set is fun and functional and as an added benefits the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Once summer is here in full force and the harvest is rolling in many of us feel overwhelmed with the amount of fresh fruit and vegetable collected from the garden. Save mom’s harvest from the compost bin by helping her preserve all the wonderful tomatoes, cucumbers, berries and more with a waterbath, sauce master or canning rack. Canning is a great way to save your bumper crop to be enjoyed throughout the year and is all the more fun when done as a group. Gift your mom with canning equipment and your assistance to create memories for a lifetime.

No matter how you decide to show your appreciation to the mothers in your life this Mother’s Day remember that its the thought that counts! As my mom always said, “I love it because it’s from you!”

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! We hope your day is truly blessed.
