Make Dad’s day with a gardening gift for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is coming up fast – this year it’s on 20 June. So it’s time to get organised with a little something to show him how much he means!

If you’re finding that this deadline puts the pressure on, don’t worry. We’re here to help. They say that men can be difficult to buy for, but if the man in your life is a gardener, the task of present procurement is made considerably easier.

There’s a rather special bond between a man and his shed, and we have some ideas to help celebrate his love for everything gardening this Father’s Day – as well as earning yourself some serious brownie points.

Of course, if you’re a dad yourself, you may want to make sure that this year Father’s Day brings you something you actually want for your gardening. If this is the case, feel free to direct your loved ones to the below for a little gift inspiration…!

 

Here are our top picks for Father’s Day gardening gifts 2021.

 

National Trust spade – Our ‘National Trust Made by Burgon & Ball’ collection of garden tools is the result of our collaboration with Europe’s largest conservation charity. These tools have a beautiful heritage look, with dark wood handles and touches of brass. This spade is solid-socket forged, which means that the head and socket is forged from a single piece of steel, the way tools have traditionally been made – there are no welds here! The steel is strong high-carbon steel, so it’s just about as strong as a spade can be. This range benefits the National Trust too, with a percentage of revenue from sales supporting the charity's conservation activities.

 

Dig The Glove gardening gloves – You can’t go wrong with a smart new pair of gardening gloves! Our Dig The Glove range features classic and comfortable fabrics like tweed, denim, and corduroy. Each design is available in a choice of sizes for a good fit. Padded palm and fingers protect the hand, and mesh fourchettes (that’s the material on the side of each finger, joining the front to the back of the gloves) keep things nice and cool. A wrist strap prevents debris dropping into the glove, and real leather trim adds a touch of luxury. These gloves are a cut above in the style stakes!

 

Corona convertible ComfortGEL Ratchet Cut anvil pruner/lopper – This range of high-performance tools from the USA is known for its durability and reliability. In North America it’s a name that’s trusted by keen gardeners and professional landscapers alike, so you know that you’ll be giving a Father’s Day gift which will stand up to some pretty robust treatment. This heavy duty ratchet pruner was awarded ‘Best Buy’ by Gardeners’ World which rated its strong cut, comfortable handles and four-stage ratchet action. If Dad likes to do a proper job when it comes to pruning, this is this the perfect gardening gadget for him.

 

Kneelo® knee pads (see top photo) – These knee pads are the most comfort his knees will ever know! These are the original memory foam knee pads, with generous twin layers of memory foam around a lightweight foam core. The unique cut-out design means they don’t ride up or dig in uncomfortably when kneeling. They’re great in the garden so he can wander as he works, without the fuss of carrying a kneeler. They’re great for DIY, too, and for any hobby which involves kneeling – like car or bike maintenance, for example. These will be his new go-to garden accessory.

Razor Hoe – This tool enjoys a bit of a cult following – it should perhaps have its own Instagram account! Since gardening guru Alys Fowler highlighted it as an excellent gardening gift over a decade ago, it has proved hugely popular with gardeners and allotmenteers. An unusual garden tool which might not be on Dad’s radar, it’s a super-tough weeder and cultivator. The laminated Japanese steel slices easily through roots and shoots, stopping weeds in their tracks, and the hardened tip bites easily into all types of earth – even clay, baked, or stony ground. Available in right-handed, left-handed and long-handled versions for using standing up, there’s a Razor Hoe for every gardening dad. 

 

Inspire Dad to get the most out of his gardening time, with a stylish but very practical gift to help him really enjoy his garden this Father's Day.

Green manures: the what and the why

As autumn approaches, it’s the ideal time to consider sowing a green manure. It might not sound that pleasant, but a green manure is simply a crop which is sown not for the purpose of harvesting it, or for enjoying it as an ornamental plant, but as a way of improving the soil.
