Pretty and practical: gorgeous new gardening gifts this Christmas

This Christmas, we have lots of gorgeous new gardening gifts and some handy new tools too, so gardeners can be well and truly spoilt! Whether you’re searching for something fabulously floral, or whether you’re looking at the purely practical, Burgon & Ball has a little something that’s just perfect.

For beautiful gardening gifts that are sure to make a splash at Christmas, there’s a stunning new design collection in the award-winning ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ series. ‘British Bloom’ is a dramatic confection of some of the garden’s best-loved and most on-trend flowers, in sumptuous rich colours that are perfect for the festive season.

Showcasing on-trend dahlias and peonies, the ‘British Bloom’ collection also introduces new gift ideas, including two new gift sets that are perfect for sending by post. At just 2.5cm high, the pruner and holster set and the snip and holster set are certainly letterbox-friendly. A new seed packet storage tin also features the dramatic British Bloom design.

If you’re buying for a houseplant fan, their Christmas wishes have also been answered! We have a whole new collection of indoor gardening tools dedicated to houseplant care – so even new plant-lovers can have happy, healthy houseplants. The new collection includes a houseplant pruner, orchid snips, Japanese pruning scissors and a set of small-but-perfectly-formed terrarium tools. With the ‘indoor jungle’ look making style headlines, these tools are an essential for every stylish homeowner.

And when it comes to displaying houseplants with a dash of panache, there are stylish new designs in our indoor plant pot selection, too. The ‘Venetian’ design’s ornate curves are tempered by an understated grey subtly-crackled glaze. ‘Morocco’ features a mesmerising geometric pattern, crackle glazed in a cool celadon shade. The stone-effect finish of ‘Aztec’ lends an on-trend folk feel – and the set of three small pots in a tray creates a gorgeous style statement. 

For the seriously houseplant-obsessed, three new hanging pot designs take indoor greenery to new heights. ‘Pie Crust’ has a gorgeously green dip glaze and an eye-catching indented design – just like Mum used to make! At just 7cm diameter, ‘Baby Dotty’ is adorably tiny, simply perfect for displaying those dainty mini succulents. The dip glaze in soft aqua makes this the perfect pot for bathrooms, too. And finally, there’s a glazed pot in neutral grey, in a knotted macramé hanger – a classic boho style statement that’s once again the must-have home accessory. 

If you're looking for gift inspiration for a green-fingered loved one, or need to come up with ideas for your own wish list, have a browse here. We've come up with some lovely suggestions for him, for her, and for stocking fillers and Secret Santas!

Getting the West of England buzzing!

We were thrilled recently to be involved in a new project in the Bristol area, with the aim of helping to get the West of England buzzing.
