This winter holiday season, give your favorite gardener something they can use: seeds to grow, tubers to plant, or a handy planting guide for next spring. While we wait patiently for next year's growing season to start, garden-themed gifts inspire our creativity and give us gardeners something to look forward to. Discover lots of great ideas in the "top ten" list below, or browse the Gardener Gifts Collection.
1) Art Packs
The 2023 Art of Seed Calendar draws from our latest collaboration with a diverse crew of independent artists working in different media. Plus, everyone needs a calendar, so why not have one filled with gorgeous contemporary art inspired by the garden?
Each month showcases an original work of art that illustrates a seed story from the artist's point of view. It's user-friendly too, with lots of space for writing your to-dos.
Ideal for the gardener who takes pride in growing from seed, Self-Watering Seed Starting Trays are eco-friendly and reusable season after season. And because the trays are self-watering, seedlings won't require daily attention.
Another great option for windowsill growing is our Self-Watering Microgreens Kit. Each plastic-free kit comes with a beautiful glazed terra-cotta pot, four types of microgreens seeds, growing medium, and instructions.
Forcing bulbs indoors can be a real mood-booster over the winter months. Shop the new collection of Amaryllis to find the most elegant varieties, including the unusual Cybister Amaryllis 'Evergreen' and classic Dutch varieties like 'Red Lion' (shown left).
Forcing bulbs is easy and rewarding. For Amaryllis, choose a a container not much larger than the size of the bulbs, pot bulbs with well-draining soil, and place near a sunny window. Water sparingly and provide a stake or branch of curly willow to support blooms.
For children's books, check out the beautifully illustrated What's Inside a Flower? by Rachel Ignotofsky–even adults will have something to learn from this excellent resource.

As wall art, our Planting Guide Posters are not just useful–they're beautiful! And because each guide is organized around frosts, the information remains relevant no matter where you live.
