The temperature is going up and now we are well into June, we are looking forward to some summer days spent enjoying the garden.  Yes, this time of year gets everybody outside, but there are some hardy customers who have been out enjoying their patch all year round, whatever the weather: The Gardeners.

These gardening enthusiasts have been out there come rain or shine, making their little bit of outside space perfect for months, and a summer spent relaxing in their creation is their reward!  We all know somebody that spends all their money in the local garden centre, all their time landscaping and never feel more at home than when they are actually outside of their home.  But what gift do your buy for somebody who considers a bag of fertiliser to be a treat?

Our Gardening Gifts section may just provide the inspiration you seek!

We think a particularly good gift for the green-fingered is our "I'd Rather Be In The Garden" mug.  Made of quality bone china, and with a simple, classic look, all the fun of this mug is in its cheeky slogan.  Perfect for when the gardener has to stop being a busy bee, or a novelty item to take to work to allow their personality to shine through on the morning coffee break.

There is even a matching coaster, which when combined with the mag makes a lovely matching set.


For the reluctant cook, we have the same design in an apron.  Ideal for the gardener that only comes in when they need some nourishment to continue their latest landscaping garden project.  This apron says that you'd rather be tending your herbs than using them!

For those that enjoy welcoming the wildlife into their garden, the sight of our British Garden Birds Placemats may just coax them in for dinner.  Each one features a stunning photograph of one of our native birds, and we can just imagine these placemats being admired on the dining table and being used for comparison and identification over breakfast spent watching the birds in the garden from the window!

We hope that our Gardening Gifts Section can help sow the seeds of an idea for a charming gift for the horticulturalist in your life! Whether you are buying for a birthday, Father's Day, to say thank you or just because, we're sure they will appreciate our quality country giftware.
