March 10, 2014

Shopping for a keen gardener this Mother’s Day?

Why not take a look at the gardening treats that I have come across at

Royal VKB Herb Garden & Scissors

Whether your Mum likes to grow her own herbs or buy them fresh from a supermarket this fabulous little pot means you can keep them organized all in one spot. With scissors integrated into the side pocket Mum can simply just cut or pick as many herbs as needed.

Sophie Conran – Galvanised Trug

Garden sheds seem to be commandeered by the man of the house so your Mum may need a permanent store her favourite gardening tools. This beautiful trug keeps everything to hand and could be stored under the kitchen sink or by the back door.

Each galvanized trug is handmade with an aged appearance to give character, and has a waxed beech wood handle and Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball logo.

    I like the trug but I would probably fill it up with G&T and nibbles! What about tickets to the RHS Chelsea Flower show?

    Oh I love the Gubbins pots, they are so lovely! It’s just a shame I can’t keep plants alive long enough to make them worth buying 😉

      I’m not very green fingered either, I either forget to water or water too often

  • Little Mans Mum March 12, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    My mum cannot stand gardening, but my gran is a keen gardener so I’m sure she’d love these.
