Mother’s Day is late this year, on 27 March – which makes it brilliant for gardeners! It’s also the first day of lighter evenings after the clocks change, so a timely gardening gift could really help Mum appreciate that extra hour of daylight.
It will here before we know it, though, so it’s time to get organised. If you have a green-fingered mum to buy for, whether she’s your own or someone else’s, the shopping for that special something is made easier by our selection of gorgeous gardening gifts. Here are our top Mother’s Day gift ideas for 2022.
National Trust ‘Under the Canopy’ Kneelo® garden kneeler
Hot off the press, this gorgeous new addition to our National Trust Made by Burgon & Ball collection is one of our new launches for 2022. The bold colours and delicately layered shapes of the design are shown off to perfection on the kneeler, celebrating the beauty and subtle textures found in landscapes across our much-loved countryside. All our Kneelo kneelers are made of twin layers of luxurious memory foam around a lightweight foam core, offering superb comfort. Her knees will thank you!
Indoor plant mister
If Mum loves her houseplants, this is definitely one for her. Perfect for giving houseplants soft hydration with soaking the compost, our stylish mister is another new introduction for 2022 - and we have to say, we’re quite taken with it. Of course, it looks very smart, in a choice of Stone, Charcoal or classic mirror-polished stainless steel finishes. But it’s when you use it that you fall in love with it. The spray is uniform, gentle, and without any irritating drips and splashes, making it a real joy to use. Incidentally, the Stone and Charcoal colours are a perfect match for our small-but-beautifully-formed indoor watering can, too.
This beautiful set contains our RHS-endorsed trowel and fork, both carrying a lifetime guarantee. The tools are presented in a gorgeous gift box featuring the beautiful British Meadow pattern, which we created using artworks dating back to 1825, specially selected from the RHS Lindley Collections. The trowel is engraved with a quote from Gertrude Jekyll, legendary horticulturalist and garden designer: “The love of gardening is a seed once sown, that never dies.” Quite the inspiring woman – just like Mum.
You can’t go wrong with a smart new pair of gardening gloves – and these are proof that ‘practical’ doesn’t have to be dull! With padded palms for protection, a wrist strap to stop debris falling into the glove, and mesh between the fingers to keep her cool, these gloves are designed for performance, but will certainly add a touch of style to Mum’s gardening kit, too. This Oak Leaf design is available in four colours, each toning with a matching Kneelo® memory foam garden kneeler and knee pads if you fancy taking your gifting to the next level.
Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball grey ticking tool bag
Whether she loves her beautiful blooms, or is an avid allotmenteer, this tool bag is just the thing for carrying Mum’s gardening bits and bobs. In a classic grey striped heavyweight cotton, there’s plenty of room for carrying those essential can’t-live-without-them hand tools, plus all her labels, gloves, twine, snips and other paraphernalia. There’s even room for a flask, so she can make a day of it! The tool bag is washable, too, so it’s easy to keep looking good. Lightweight, smart and useful, it’s the ideal gardening companion.
So why not make Mum’s day, by treating her to some gorgeous gardening goodies? It’ll give her gardening a great start this year!
