Here are some fun gift ideas for the gardener:

TOP 5 GARDENER GIFTS:

Gardener Gifts: Hatch Chile Seeds
GARDENER GIFT #1:
Pepper Seeds

Pick unusual varieties to try, gardeners usually love to experiment with new varieties. We have over 100 varieties of peppers, so if you're gardener likes sweet and savory or spicy, we have delicious sweet peppers or mild peppers, as well as the hottest peppers, and everything in between. Hatch Chile is a delicacy from New Mexico but the seeds can be grown in any home garden to enjoy roasted green and red chile no matter where you live! Home cooks and chefs alike love the variety of flavor and colors as well as heat that peppers can bring to the table.

We also feature seed gift sets such as our Chef's 3-Pack with Padron, Paprika and Pepperoncini pepper seeds, or our Hot Pepper 3-Pack including Jalapeño, Serrano & Fresno Seeds; or check out the delicious 3 Pack of New Mexican Chile Seeds including 30 seeds each for Hatch Mild, Big Jim NuMex & Sandia Select. Or for a complete garden, check out our gift-wrapped Food Garden with a cute garden tote and 20 seed varieties for the easiest, most productive food garden ever. 

 Gardener Gifts: Tomato Seeds

GARDENER GIFT #2:
Tomato Seeds

Gardeners love growing new varieties of tomatoes! Heirloom tomatoes are always a favorite as they've been grown by generations for their flavor and attributes. It is also wise to vary it up and grow a few different tomato varieties each year. This can help cut down on disease and pests, and add a variety of flavor and increase your harvest period.

Gardener Gift: Radish Seeds

GARDENER GIFT #3:
Vegetable Seeds

Gardeners always grow some of these classic vegetable seeds, and it's nice to have fresh seeds each year to start. Radishes or herbs like Cilantro or Basil, for example, can be planted and harvested throughout the growing season, so you can always use more! Basil seeds can also be started indoors and grown in a sunny window all winter long to harvest leaves to add to soups, sandwiches, pizzas, and pasta dishes. Having some green basil growing in your window in the winter months always brings some cheer to any gardener and cook. 

 

 Gardening Gloves and Hori Hori Garden Knife Tool

GARDENER GIFT #4:
Gardening Gloves

We personally love the rose gloves that go up to your elbow as they make it easier to harvest without getting scratched up by Zucchini stalks or prickly cucumber vines... plus they keep dirt out, protect your skin from the sun, and seem to last a lot longer than regular garden gloves. 

 Seed Starter Mix or Potting Soil

GARDENER GIFT #5:
Seedling Mix

Yes, gardeners love getting good dirt! ;) Seed Starter Mix is a lovely loamy well-draining mix that is perfect for starting seeds, and most gardeners LOVE starting seeds. Potting soil is also a good option, and is used for transplants and starting seeds. Keep in mind that Top Soil and Garden Soil are NOT Seed Starter mix or Potting Soil, which is what most gardeners are looking for – so make sure to find Seed Starter Mix or Potting Soil specifically as that makes the best gardener gift for seed growers. We just can't get enough of it. ;) 

 

 Happy gifting and gardening out there!
