Growing Gifts for your Valentine
Have you met your perfect match and you want to let them know this Valentines? The Perfect Match Rose Bush will do just that. It might look a bit bare at the moment as it’s still winter but in about 10 weeks time you’ll see the buds start to form and it summer you’ll be greeted with beautiful, bright pink blooms that will remind you both that you really are a match made in heaven.
In Celtic lore the crab apple tree is known as the ‘Tree of Love’. What better gift to send to your love on Valentines day? Not only that but after a few years when the sapling becomes established you’ll be all set with crab apples for life. Our saplings are bare at the moment as they are still dormant for winter but in a month or two you will start to see the new leaf buds forming ready the burst open in the spring.
If you’re not looking to spend much this year then our love in a bag is the perfect option. It’s a cute little jute bag filled with a beautiful selection of red native wildflower seeds. Sow the seeds of love in the garden and watch year after year as you get an everlasting bunch of flowers.
These two native trees make the perfect his and hers gifts. Known as the King and Queen of the Woods they stand head and shoulders above the rest. Send your King a beautiful oak tree or your queen stunning beech. Like the rose bush they look a little bare at this time of year as they are dormant for the winter but you can plant them together and watch as the trees and your love grows! Our saplings really are a gift that lasts a lifetime. Both grow to be very large trees so are best suited to larger gardens and landscapes.
Another inexpensive option is to go for our I Love You Bean and Mug Set, this gift is more of a novelty item but will make an immediate impact. The cute printed mug comes with a branded message bean and a sachet of Vermiculite to grow it in. All you need to do is empty the sachet into the mug or little pot, push the bean down just below the surface and add a little bit of water (make sure not to overwater it). Then sit back and wait keeping an eye out for the first peep of a shoot. Sometimes the shell from the bean will grow up with the stalk so it really is like watching love grow!
Magnolias are seen as very beautiful, feminine trees. In the spring the branches come alive with large, colourful blossoms. Sending a magnolia is the perfect mix of a tree gift and a bunch of flowers. We have lots of varieties to choose from the beautiful Star magnolia which produces stark white blooms to the Susan magnolia which colours range from medium to dark pink. The magnolia varieties will be coming into bud very soon ready to burst open in the spring.
7. Cactus Plants and Succulents
If you’re looking for something with a little less commitment we have beautiful single and trio cactus plants and succulent sets that are perfect for the modern home or apartment. They’re low maintenance and not as long lasting as a tree so they make the perfect gift to send this Valentines.
Last but not least you can’t send the gift without a card, you can add a card to your order free of charge with a unique message to make the gift truly special. Take a look at our Love and Floral Greetings Cards for the perfect accompaniment.
