It may be a fallow time for most gardeners but Christmas is the perfect time to start getting excited about your garden next year. Here’s some of my top pics for green fingered gifts
- Gothic hanging bird table
The birds in your garden will be happy with this gothic bird table from the RSPB. It comes with a sturdy chain so you can hang it from a strong tree branch of bracket. The recycled plastic tray is removable for easy cleaning, and it also comes complete with some free suet cakes! £39.99
Honey Night Cream
This luxurious honey night cream from online retailer beegifts.co.uk contains honey and natural oils for skin tending towards dryness. Use on face and neck for smooth hydrated looking skin.
Avid growers will thank you for this fab mini-polytunnel – 4ft x 8ft – from Robinson Polytunnels. It will help to keep vegetable seedlings warm throughout the winter months, getting the growing season off to a flying start in 2016.
Tough Touch Gardening Gloves
These Tough Touch, gauntlet-style glove are designed for use on heavier, thornier garden tasks. The suppleness and strength to the leather allows for great dexterity and protection when wielding the secateurs.
Copper Indoor Metal Watering Can
This pretty polished copper watering can with brass rose will last forever and will look lovely on display when not in use. Ideal for house plants, window boxes and small hanging baskets with a one litre capacity, so more suited for the indoor gardener. Buy from the Chelsea Gardener.
