The 27th of April marks the first day of National Gardening Week, which is coming at a great time, don't you think? Those of us who have gardens are certainly out in them much more at the moment, thanks to a fortunately sunny lockdown so far.
So, as so many of us are getting back into our gardens, we thought we'd share some goodies that we think would make perfect gifts for gardeners, or even just lovely treats for yourself.
Emma Bridgewater seem to have a mug for everything, so it's no surprise that there's a few to suit the garden, and they never fail to make great gifts. There's the Good Gardening range, which features typical garden plants and creatures, so need we say more? Or if there's particular flowers that your beloved green finger loves to plant, then there's a huge range of flower mugs: from Orchids to Sweet peas, Dahlias to Sunflowers, there's one for everyone - in fact there's almost too many gorgeous designs to choose from.
If you or your gardener loved one lean more towards allotments or veg growing in their greenhouse, then the Emma Bridgewater Greenhouse tin might make for a lovely addition to the home. It's beautifully illustrated and is perfect for storing string, seed packets, planting labels and more.
There's also the Veg Garden range by Emma Bridgewater again for anyone with allotments or enjoy growing vegetables. From tomatoes and artichokes to strawberries and lemons, there's some simply gorgeous designs and items to choose from.
If you're looking for something a bit more fun, then Austin Sloan signs might be the gift for you. Their witty and rustic signs have various phrases on them, from funny to sentimental, including some about the garden that could be hung indoors, outdoors or even on a shed/garden room/greenhouse.
