Christmas presents for garden and greenhouse enthusiasts

Floridian Christmas shoppers who know a garden and greenhouse enthusiast may be interested in a range of gift suggestions made recently by a local website.

According to Tampa Bay Online, buyers have a range of options open to them that horticulture fans would love.

It explained that University of South Florida Botanical Gardens expert Kim Hutton and Hillsborough County Extension horticulture agent Marina DAbreau both agreed that a garden stool is a great idea.

They advised looking online for one with wheels as they could be difficult to source in stores.

Struggling gardeners may also enjoy Whats Wrong With My Plant? – a new book with almost 500 photographs and 600 sketches that is designed to help gardeners identify problems with their favourite varieties.

Another option is a compost tumbler, which helps make light work of turning over organic material.

Meanwhile, the Arizona Daily Star has advised garden and greenhouse lovers to keep a record of their successes and failures, as it will make a good reference in years to come.
