Holiday Season | Gardening Gifts for Children

As the Holiday Season approaches we are always asked for gifts for children and this year we have some wonderful offerings. Many are in stock now and others we are just waiting on shipments from overseas.  Due to Covid this year there are many delays so if there is something that you see that you think that you might want to gift, do not delay as we are now unable to get in anything additional and in some cases our shipments will now not arrive until after Christmas.

 We Are The Gardeners | Joanna Gaines & Family


Puriri Lane | We Are The Gardeners | Joanna Gaines & Kids

In  this delightful book We Are the Gardeners, Joanna and the kids chronicle the adventures of starting their own family garden. From their failed endeavours, obstacles to overcome (bunnies that eat everything!), and all the knowledge they've gained along the way, the Gaines family shares how they learned to grow a happy, successful garden. As it turns out, trying something new isn't always easy, but the hardest work often yields the greatest reward. There are always new lessons to be learned in the garden!

The most gorgeous gift for all the budding gardeners out there!

I always find it hard to find gifts for boys and here is the perfect gift to encourage creativity and getting outdoors and into nature.
