The Best Gardening Gifts for Father’s Day
Getting gifts for someone who already has everything can be tricky. Whether you’re shopping for your husband, dad or son, here are our favourite picks for Father’s Day gifts 2023.
The Traditional Gardener
If he really likes the traditional looking kind of garden tools, the National Trust Digging Spade and Digging Fork are the go to. Made from high-carbon steel echoing the styles of yesteryear the spade and fork have a 100 kg breaking strain and pack a punch for getting some hard yakka done. The Ryset long handled garden tool collection combines functionality and good looks with their FSC certified ashwood handles and stainless steel head. Gardening no longer needs to be back breaking with these additions to his tool shed. Let’s not forget the Haws Warley Fall watering can, hand made and based on the original design by John Haws, these are the penultimate gift for any gardener.
The Functional Gardener
If he prefers function over aesthetics, Wolf-Garten is undoubtedly the garden tool to meet this criteria. Still a great set of good looking tools, the Wolf-Garten ethos of “every tool head fits every handle” gives you endless possibilities to suit your height or the task at hand. The wide variety of 11 handles in different lengths. Simply find the handle that he will love (the Multi-Star 150cm Hardwood Handle is a firm favourite) and match it up with the tool head. We have a great range of Wolf-Garten garden tool bundles to help you get started.
The Gadget Gardener
If gadgets are his thing, we have the Ryset 4 in 1 Soil Survey instrument to measure the pH level, moisture, sunlight and temperature of the soil. To keep on top of the temperature and humidity, we have the Ryset Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer & Hygrometer weather station. Let’s not forget the ultimate toy for the gardener: the battery operated Wolf-Garten Fertiliser Spreader.
The Urban Farmer
If he loves growing his own, having the right tools makes it much more satisfying. If he is getting started, The Urban Farmer by Justin Calverley, is an easy to follow practical guide to help you get the most out of your urban garden.
For the more experienced gardener, we have the Burgon & Ball Seedling Widger, Romberg BoQube mini greenhouse, and of course our wide range of organic seeds. If you’re looking for something special gift, the Haws watering can and mister sets is perfect for watering seedlings, with the detachable rose that gives a gentle sprinkling of water, or for a more substantial coverage area, the Haws Bearwood Brook watering can will be a gift that lasts a lifetime.
The Indoor Gardener
If he’s more of a “him indoors” kind of gardener, we’ve got the ultimate book on indoor plants: Green Thumb by Craig Miller-Randle. To help him keep his plants in tip top shape, we have the Burgon & Ball Houseplant pruner, Ryset 1.5L watering can and the Munash Organics Gift Pack. Let’s not forget we have Tiny World of Terrariums and Terrarium Tool Set if the miniature garden is more his thing
Whatever type of gardener you’re buying for, some of the good old fashioned basics won’t go amiss. We have a great selection of gardening gloves, from the unique scratch protector gloves to the fancy Burgon & Ball”Dig the Glove” range. If you’re looking for a no-nonsense gardening glove, the Martula Rigger Gloves are just the job along with our popular Afroblonde Digger hats.
