  • Zen Reflections Juniper Bonsai

    Our Review

    Bonsai trees are another way to bring the garden indoors for the winter. This bonsai Juniper plant comes fully prepared with a three year old Juniper plant in a lovely blue ceramic pot. The pot is divided into two sections, one where the tree is planted and one that looks like a miniature pond. It also comes with a miniature fisherman figurine to fish in the little pond. The tree averages about three inches in height. This is an indoor variety so it will do very well in a living room or office. Keep in mind this is a live shipment so it may take a few extra days to process.  

  • Shiitake Mushroom Growing Kit

    Our Review

    Growing mushrooms at home has never been easier than with pre-innoculated mushroom growing kits like this Shiitake kit. Shiitakes are one of the most delicious mushrooms, and chances are if you are shopping for a gardener, they also love to cook! This mushroom kit gives the same satisfaction as growing a vegetable patch, but it is even easier. All you have to do is maintain a humidity level by spraying it with water, and soon you will see mushrooms start to pop right out of the sides. A single kid can provide multiple harvests. 

  • Mudlark Trio Handcrafted Soap Bar Set (Seaside)

    Our Review

    One thing that gardeners can never have too much of is soap. After long days of toiling in the soil, a high quality bar of soap makes all the difference. This set of three soap bars from Mudlark is both beautiful and functional. The soaps are 6.6 ounces each and every bar is quadruple milled for superior smoothness and quality. These soaps are made with shea butter, honey and oatmeal and come in three lovely scents – Malay, Lavender and Almond.

  • Gel Elite Kneepads For Work & Gardening

    Our Review

    Gardening can be very hard on the knees, since it involves so much kneelinng down to plant, weed, dig, etc. A good pair of kneepads can be a real lifesaver. These kneepads from Gamba Tools are top of the line and were created for the most hardcore situations, including masonry and installing flooring, so they are more comfortable and longer lasting than most gardening knee pads. They make an excellent practical gift on their own or combined with other useful gardening tools.

This Hori Hori from Truly Garden can be used for digging, measuring depth, pruning, trimming and more. This knife is very high quality as well as eco friendly, with a seven inch stainless steel blade and a wooden handle made from Forest Stewardship Council certified sustainably harvested wood. The stainless steel knife extends all the way through the wooden handle so there is never a risk of the knife snapping off.

    Crabtree & Evelyn is the best when it comes to caring for the hard working hands of gardeners.
