Asteraceae: a new ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ collection

This season, there's a gorgeous new design collection in our much-loved ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ range of gardening gifts. 

Entitled ‘Asteraceae’, the elegant new design showcases flowers from the daisy family. Flowers from the ‘Asteraceae’ family have a starring role to play in our gardens as summers become longer and autumns get warmer. These resilient late-season flowers keep the colour going in the longer seasons we're now seeing, plus they also offer an important source of forage for pollinators when other flowers fade. We're going to be seeing a lot more of these bright little stars in our borders.

We created the elegant new pattern incorporating specially selected illustrations from the RHS Lindley Collections of historic botanical art. The watercolour paintings by Caroline Maria Applebee date from circa 1810 and feature China aster and coreopsis. We think the soft sage green background we've selected makes the perfect foil for the jewel-bright colours.

New ideas for perfect presents

The Asteraceae collection sees exciting new gifts added to the ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ series, but we've been sure to includes new twists on old favourites from previous RHS Gifts design collections, too. Beautiful gift packaging features the eye-catching new design, and as you’d expect, we've been careful to make it plastic-free and easily recyclable.

The line-up of new gifts includes a couple of activity-themed sets. Focusing on planting, there’s a gift-boxed set of our new heart-shaped RHS-endorsed planting trowel plus a new design of dibber, also RHS-endorsed. The tools have a lifetime guarantee and purple-painted FCS® wooden handles, a nod to the vibrant tones of the China aster. And for the herb grower or keen cook, a set of herb stripper and snip are presented in an appealing tin bearing the Asteraceae pattern.

Staying with herbs, there’s a new set of three ‘Asteraceae’ herb pots, handily sized to hold supermarket herbs – or of course you can use them to grow your own!

The final two new gifts the collection offer new exciting presentations of much-loved favourites. An RHS-endorsed pruner and holster set is presented in a new keepsake tin bearing the Asteraceae pattern. The pruner has a ten-year guarantee and purple comfort-grip handles. And in a complete design refresh, there’s a new-look indoor watering can, with a distinctly contemporary feel.


Firm favourites

Favourite gifts from previous design collections in the RHS Gifts series make a welcome return with ‘Asteraceae’. In RHS-endorsed tools, the ever-popular trowel and hand fork set is here, now with a new butterfly etching on the trowel head and as ever, offering a lifetime guarantee. There’s a gift-boxed RHS-endorsed secateur, with a ten-year guarantee. All tools have custom-coloured purple handles.

Completing the line-up, the much-loved Kneelo® memory foam kneeler shows off the sunny new pattern to perfection, while the gardening gloves have cushioned palm and anti-debris gathered wrist, and are washable at 30 degrees to keep them looking good.

Available now from garden centres, gift outlets and here on our own website, RRPs range from just £9.99 up to £26.99. So this year it's easy to find the perfect gardening gift for every gardener, in our new ‘Asteraceae’ RHS Gifts for Gardeners collection.
