Save yourself the stress of shopping in busy malls by giving loved ones gifts from your garden or local nursery. Here are a few ideas…

There is something special about giving friends and family a gift that you’ve spent months growing in your own garden. These gifts are kinder on your wallet and with a little DIY, they are more personal and thoughtful than mass-produced gifts.

Charm the chef

Give the aspiring master chef in your circle herb jars with herbs grown from seed.

Herbs are a great addition to any meal, particularly fresh herbs that are bursting with flavour.  If you have someone special in the family who loves to spend time creating delicious dishes, give the gift of fresh herbs.

Culinary delights

Cooking is often a rushed affair for inspired entrepreneurs, focused professionals and young families.

You could make supper prep simpler for your busy loved ones by using vegetables from your garden to make pasta sauces, pickled vegetables or relishes. Place in glass bottles with personalised gift labels and include them in a gift hamper. These will be enjoyed for weeks after they’ve been received.
