Holiday Gift Guide for Gardeners and Contest Part 1

One of the best gifts you can give someone is something they can actually use and enjoy.  What could be more practical than providing the necessary items to grow your own food, or grow a beautiful garden?  Who needs another tie, pair of slippers or bubble bath?  

Here are some top picks for this season. 

The Living Ledge is a wonderful addition to your kitchen garden.  You can grow herbs or flowers right on the window.  This clears clutter from the kitchen counter or window sill, the usual place for growing plants in the kitchen.  Suction cups adhere to a glass window, holding the acrylic planter and shelf in place.  This versatile gadget can also be utilized as a terrarium.

DeWit Garden Tools are handmade in Holland and I found out about them through Shawna Coronado.  They are available in the USA by Garden Tool Company  There is a nice selection of various tools.  These tools are made to  last a very long time.  Shawna actually designed a tool herself!  It is specifically for removing soil from containers and planting in containers.  There is a sharp side for opening bags of potting soil as well.  Brilliant idea Shawna!   Write a comment on why you would like a Dewit tool and you could be the lucky winner!  Winner announced 12/24/12

Global Garden Friends have some very useful products to make your gardening easier.  The Ultimate Plant Cage and Ultimate Plant Clips help keep your veggies off the ground so you will be able to eat the produce before the critters do.   are Very sturdy green plastic planting stakes are available that are useful around the garden.

Disclosure:  The above were gifts that were sent to me to review.  I have tried them and the comments are my own experiences.

  1. cool I would like one because my husband complains about having to open the bag for me and that I make a huge mess with my hands! and also my fingernails get shot...finally its a cool tool!

  2. That looks like a handy tool. I love tools that multi-purpose. Plus it's unique looking. I like that. too.

  3. I would love to win this. I don't have any small tools for working in the dirt, and I work with a few containers every growing season. Currently, I use either my hands or a 15" metal spoon that used to be used in the kitchen.

  4. My tool selection for gardening is very poor right now. This looks like a great tool to start a good collection. Put me down for a chance to win! Great blog, Thanks.
