It’s the “most wonderful time of the year!” Well, sort of. It’s winter and gardeners are just not themselves this time of year. There’s not much to do except turn the compost on warm days and feed the birds. What to get the gardener for Christmas?!

Houses for bees, butterflies, bats, or birds
Gift certificates to organic and heirloom seed companies (Baker Creek, Seed Savers)
Garden gloves (you can never have too many)
Sharpening tools for pruners and loppers
Waterproof shoes for summer and winter
Annual memberships to Botanic Gardens
Gift certificates to local nurseries (ones that don’t use pesticides on their seedlings)
Neem oil (the only thing you need to control issues in an organic garden)
Garden Journals that provide a place to map out past, current, and future garden plans
