Christmas Gift Guide for Organic Gardeners

Ok, I’ll level with you, I understand it can be pretty difficult to buy Christmas presents for people who squeal when they find a particularly good pile of horse manure, or a couple of pallet collars going free.

Part of the fun of being an organic gardener is repurposing things to use on your allotment and trying to do things in a way that is as un-consumerist as possible. But that doesn’t help much when it comes to buying for them. So I’m here to help; because there are a few things that even organic gardeners would be very happy to receive!

So let’s dig in and find out why organic gardeners really want too find under their home-grown Christmas trees!

  1. This oh-so-efficient Osciliating Hoe from Kent and Stowe

It might not look like much to the untrained eye; but to us organic gardeners this is the Cadillac of hoes! It’s made from sustainably-sourced wood, with a nice long handle to prevent back ache and its brilliant oscillating head makes light work of even the toughest weeds. It might be a little inconspicuous in your present pile, but I guarantee they will thank you.

2. The Almanac 2022

This seasonal guide to 2022 is not only useful but also provides some very decent shelf candy. It’s beautifully written and insightful and contains lots of helpful information that even your favourite organic gardener might not know! Not only that, but if it goes down well this year, you’re set for life on gift ideas – thank me later!

3. This easy to use and brilliantly made Wormery

Wormery

What’s your organic gardeners favourite thing? You? Nope, guess again; it’s worms. That’s right, worms. They won’t admit this of course, but if you want to stand a chance of being as highly regarded as worms, this is a good place to start. Allow them to turn kitchen scraps into compost and natural fertiliser for their gardens all whilst playing with worms! What’s not to love.

4. Cut it like Monty Don with these super sleek Niwaki Secateurs

Niwaki Secateurs

These Japanese secateurs are just the absolute gold standard of gardening tools. They are sharper than the entire gardener’s question time panel and unlike the GQT panel are built to last. As I write this I am fighting the urge to get up and just go and visit mine and hold them. If it were socially acceptable to walk around with secateurs in your pocket, these would go with me everywhere. They even come in a really sexy box. Your organic gardener will definitely thank you!

5. These Stylish Slate Plant Labels

Slate Plant Labels

If you don’t have a huge budget but you want to get the perfect present for your favourite gardener, these slate plant labels ought to do it! They’re bound to be a hit as they are reusable, organic and beautiful! Bound to make any garden look high end. A word to the wise if you’re getting these for yourself; they don’t stand up to the frost very well, so use them in summer 😘

Price: £12.49 Get them here

Muckboots worn by me!

6. Muckboots

The best gift for gardeners that are always playing in the dirt; Muckboots are the most recommended gardening boot! They are hard wearing, comfortable and really easy on the eyes! I switched to Muckboots a few years ago and have never looked back. I use them for literally everything from hiking to food shopping. they are available for men, women and children so it doesn’t matter what shape or size your favourite gardener is – you’ll be able to find them a muckboot!

7. The Garden Jungle by Dave Goulson

The Garden Jungle

This wonderful book would make a great stocking filler. It’s not only full of brilliant information to help your favourite organic gardener win arguments about organic gardening (which we all know they would love!) but it also tells a lovely story. They are guaranteed to love this infinitely readable and very interesting book.

Price: £3.99 (at the time of writing) Get It Here

8. This Multi-Talented Garden Tool: The Hori Hori Knife

Hori Hori Knife

You know that Crocodile Dundee moment “that’s not a knife, this is a knife!”, well this is a knife! Actually, it’s a brilliant knife, but it’s not just that. It also works as a trowel, it’s great for bulb planting, trimming roots, hoeing weeds and lots of other jobs. It also comes with a super cool canvas sheath which means your gardener can wear it on your belt and NOBODY will mess with them. The chances are, if they don’t have one of these, they probably want one. And if they don’t want one, its probably just because they don’t know they exist!

Price: £32.00 Get It Here

9. This Flask for those cold days in the garden

Thermos

Fed up of making them endless cups of tea, or talking about how they can get power to their allotment shed to run an electric kettle?! You’re not alone. This flask ought to hold them off for a bit though. If there is one thing us gardeners love on a cold day outside its a warm drink, so give them the gift of a nice warm cuppa and they will thank you forever!

Price: £23.94 Get It Here

10. Extend their growing space with this great value mini greenhouse

Mini Greenhouse

Buying a greenhouse can be a bit of a minefield, but if you want to push the boat out and get them something really special, this mini greenhouse is an excellent gift. If they have a greenhouse, this will extend their growing space, and if they don’t have a growing space, it won’t make them feel like they can’t also have a nice big greenhouse someday! These things may not look like much but they are great for starting seedlings, keeping the frost off and they’re surprisingly hard wearing!

Price: £80.90 <a href="http://&lt;!– wp:paragraph –> <p>Buying a greenhouse can be a bit of a minefield, but if you want to push the boat out and get them something really special, this mini greenhouse is an excellent gift. If they have a greenhouse, this will e</p> Get It Here
