Discover Gardening

December 2, 2010   

The cold weather arriving this week really makes it feel like the holiday season. At Kerby's, we've got the greenhouse decorated with beautiful Christmas cactus, bright poinsettias and cheerful reindeer philodendron, all set for this Friday evening's Winter Open House. Come out and enjoy homemade ginger snaps, eggnog and cider, and all of the beautiful colors of Christmas. We look forward to seeing you there. Don't forget to bundle up!

Happy Gardening,
Kim, Joey and Mark

Great Gardening Gifts

Everyone has a gardener in their lives, someone whose passion is getting their hands dirty and creating beauty with flowers and foliage. So we've compiled a list of the best gardening gifts for your favorite gardener or maybe as a special treat for yourself this season.

1. An Edible Arrangement - Help someone get their herb or vegetable garden started with an assortment of their favorite edibles. Create a themed basket such as a "Pizza Basket", with oregano, basil, tomatoes and peppers.

Plant Nanny - Do you know someone who is a gardener and a traveler? Give them a plant nanny. It will water their plants while they are away for up to two weeks.

3. Roses - For gardeners that love flowers, a rose is a gift that will keep on giving beautiful flowers all year long.

4. Fruit Trees - Your dad has always wanted his own fruit orchard, so get him started with a mango, avocado or citrus tree. Or if he is adventurous, try a jaboticaba, grumichama or black sapote.

5. Pottery - can double as a gift bag. Add a pair of gloves and a trowel, and a simple gardening gift is made.

6. Butterfly Kit - Help someone start their own butterfly garden with the plants that will attract butterflies this spring.

7. Statuary - Pigs, armadillos and foxes, oh my! A statue adds a unique touch to a garden. With cute animals or beautiful cherubs, there is something for everyone.

8. If you still can't find the perfect present, give the gift that gets better next spring, a Kerby's gift card.
