Stocking Filler: 15th December: Spalding Gardening Goodies

Every day leading up to Christmas I will be posting a little stocking filler idea.  I will try and choose global products.  If you can't get hold of the product in your country, then I hope this will be fun to read and help give you present themes.

15th of December!

Gardening Goodies from Spalding's!
Flower seeds, tools, bulbs, vegetable seeds...

Plus get a free decorative garden tool set with your order!

What better way to relax, educate and become more green (fingered) than by receiving some gardening tools or seeds for Christmas?  Whether its a plant for the kitchen window sill (herbs?), and hanging basket for the patio, or some daffodil bulbs or vegetable seeds for the spring!  These gifts will encourage ptople to have a go at reducing their carbon footprint, and destress at the same time.

As a young child I grew my own cress and lettuce (very educational and delicious!), I then proceeded to hanging baskets (pretty flowers), and then on to some vegetables (yum yum).  I suspect a lot of people like pretty flowers or plants (especially in the winter) and a lots of parents and grandparents like to spend time caring for a plant or two.

If you can, try and avoid buying pre potted herbs at supermarkets.  They pot them in small pots and dont water them properly - end result.... they look fresh for 2-3 days and then die.  Why not give someone the means to grow their own?

Yes I know, another non-makeup post but I made a pledge to do one post a day for stockingfiller ideas all through out the 24 December days leading up to Christmas.  I don't want to overload you with too many posts per day!! 

Visit www.spaldingbulb.co.uk/
for some ideas.  They break down the plants into pretty pictures, and the snap dragons featured at the top are mixed seeds £1.95.  They also break things down by what month to plant etc so you could buy themone that flowers in their birth month :)

If you want to pick things up in person, then try your local independant nursery.
P.s. Did you know Cactus plants soak up the radiation from a computer monitor?  Very cool!

Suitable for cheeky children in need of a project, gorgeous guys, knitting nans, yummy mummys, Clever cooks, dangerous dads, girly friends... everyone!! :)
