Selecting the perfect gift for a loved one, close friend, or acquaintance can often be difficult. The same can also be said when trying to choose the perfect gift for the gardener in your life. While gardening gloves or a new pair of pruners are good options, giving seeds to growers is another excellent choice.

Though the notion of giving seeds to gardeners is simple, there are a few important aspects to keep in mind before wrapping this considerate gift.

Seed Garden Gift Info

Seed garden gifts are ideal for many reasons. Most avid growers are likely to be filled with excitement at the mere thought of growing something new, especially when given to them as a present.

When it comes to buying seed, gift ideas can vary greatly and can include additional garden related items. However, there are a few things to consider to ensure that the gift is actually useful. Having a greater understanding of space available to the grower, his/her own likes or dislikes, and even the grower’s level of experience can help to make certain that the gift is well received.

Seed Gift Ideas

For beginners, easy-to-grow plants are the best choice and will increase the chances of success when the growing season arrives. More advanced gardeners may enjoy the challenge of starting unique perennial plants from seed.

Many people, such as those living in apartments, may only have the space necessary to grow a few small potted plants. Others, with access to larger yards, may be able to grow a wide range of cultivars.

Whether growing vegetables, flowers for pollinators, or planting for homegrown cut flowers, gardeners are sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness behind such a gift.

Giving Seeds as Gifts

The purchase of seeds for gardeners is also a budget friendly gift option. This makes the gifting of seeds an ideal choice for events such as remembrances, weddings, and other celebrations. Though packets of seed cost very little, this does not mean that the gift is without thought, feeling, and sentiment.

Seeds from open-pollinated plants can be grown and passed down from one generation to the next. Thus, creating a meaningful (and beautiful) connection between our past and the future.
