Plants for gifts
Plants make perfect gifts, whether buying them just as a longer lasting alternative to cut flowers or as a considered gift for the seasoned gardener. While any plant can be given as a gift some are more suited than others. Roses are a firm favourite as many have names significant to certain occasions such as Many Happy Returns, Silver Anniversary or Ruby Wedding to name but a few. Rhododenderons also make fantastic gift with names like Lees Dark Purple and Linda being popular gift choices.
Welcome a new baby with an Agapanthus Baby Blue or Iris Baby Blue for a boy and if it's a girl then Sedum Autumn Joy with its fluffy pink flowers is perfect.
If you're looking for something a little more original then you could consider the Araucaria araucana (imbricaya) or Monkey Puzzle Tree as they are commonly known. Japanese Acer varieties such as Orangeola, Red Dragon and Oregon Sunset also make wonderful gifts.
