The festive season is around the corner, meaning it’s time to pull out the notebook and plan your gifts. Although finding the perfect item can be tricky, the garden and plant lovers in your life will be sorted with these few suggestions. Here are some great gifts for gardeners:

Propagation Sets

Nothing beats the satisfaction of growing your favourite plants from scratch without having to dip into your budget. That’s what makes propagating such a sought-after skill. And with a stylish propagation station, you’ll have no excuse not to give it a go. Available in many different designs, these stations make your cuttings look good while they grow, becoming a feature in themselves.

Bulbs or Seeds

For avid gardeners with plenty of space in their backyard, try gifting bulbs or seeds you know they’ll love. Look out for rarer types that may be more difficult to find so the gift is extra special. Also make sure you choose plants that will suit their existing garden, with the right space for successful growth.


Books are a great go-to gift that anyone can enjoy. In the gardening world, thousands of stunning and informative books combine décor and learning for the best of both worlds. There are also books covering every area of gardening, allowing you to choose the perfect topic for your recipient. Whether its houseplants or cut flower gardens, you’ll certainly find what you’re looking for in a bookstore.

Themed Décor

For plant lovers who aren’t as interested in the practice of gardening, look for some botanical décor to fill their indoor and outdoor spaces. Throws, cushions, wall art and more are available everywhere and bring a sense of calm to a space.

Scented Candles

Candles are a gift that never disappoints, especially in South Africa. The wide range of botanical scents and motifs you can find is almost endless, and you can even DIY your own candles for completely personalized gifts for gardeners.
