Christmas Day is approaching quickly, and at this point most online retailers have already posted their deadline for items to be delivered by Friday.If there’s a gardener that slipped your mind when you were doing your holiday shopping, don’t worry. There are plenty of last-minute gifts that you can find in town.
Read through these easy, last-minute gifts for gardeners:
- A gift certificate to a local nursery will be a welcome surprise. You can even personalize the certificate by naming the type of plant your recipient can redeem it for.
- Gardeners love compost. Vermicomposting (composting with worms) is all the rage lately. Purchase red wriggler worms from a local fisherman’s shop or nursery. If you’re squeamish about giving the gift of worms, buy a big bag of compost, sans wrigglers.
- Bulbs are the perfect-sized stocking stuffer for a gardener friend. Look for amaryllis and other lilies your friend can plant before spring.
- Memberships to botanical gardens and gardening associations are educational and thoughtful gifts.
You can still find thoughtful and practical holiday gifts at the last minute. Visit a local nursery for more ideas!
