Roses are red… Gardening gifts for your Valentine

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and frankly, in the chilly gloom of January, it’s nice to have something to look forward to.

It coincides nicely with the early signs of spring, with spring flowers peeking through the in the borders, the days lengthening noticeably now, and the first seeds being started off on windowsills. It feels like spring is just around the corner!

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to let your loved one know how much you appreciate them – or to give yourself a little treat.

Read on for our top picks for gardening gifts this Valentine’s Day.


Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball heart apple bird feeder

This charming bird feeder looks simply delightful in the garden. At this time of year, after a long winter, our garden visitors need all the help they can get. Our feathered friends enjoy an apple, plum, pear or other soft fruit, and this will serve it up in designer style! In easy-clean powder-coated galvanised steel, with natural leather hanging cord, this feeder will stay looking good in all weathers.


RHS Gifts for Gardeners Passiflora trowel and fork set


A gorgeous gift set of RHS-endorsed trowel and fork, with wooden handles painted in a deep plum shade. For a subtle message, the box carries a gorgeous passion flower design. The trowel is engraved with the Gertrude Jekyll quote, ‘The love of gardening is a seed once sown, that never dies.’ A lovely gift, these are also serious garden tools, with an RHS lifetime guarantee.


National Trust Made by Burgon & Ball ‘Under The Canopy’ women’s gardening gloves

This gorgeous design give a fresh take on that summertime feeling of looking up through the shifting patterns of leaves to the summer skies above… The design may be ethereal, but the glove is deeply practical. A cushioned palm offers comfort and protection, and a gathered wrist prevents debris falling into the gloves. These gloves are even machine washable at 30°C.



Indoor plant mister


A mister for your Mister? Love-in-a-mister? Perhaps we’ll stick to gardening… If your favourite gardener is a houseplant fan, they’ll appreciate the super-fine mist from our indoor plant misters, as well as the mister’s classic and elegant style. All-metal moving parts ensure a steady and even mist - with no drips or splatters. Their houseplants will thank you!


RHS-endorsed perennial spade

This sought-after tool has the perfect credentials for a Valentine’s Day gift: a heart-shaped blade, and a name that means ‘enduring’. The name is of course a reference to a gardening task for which it’s absolutely ideal – splitting clumps of perennial plants. But we think we’re allowed a little poetic licence in this most romantic of seasons! Whatever time of year it’s used, this perennial spade will become a favourite, useful for all kinds of powerful, up-close digging.


This Valentine’s Day, why not show your loved one how much you care, with gifts to help love grow.
