Spring is here! That means two things: It is time to get back in the garden, and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Why not encourage your mom to get a little exercise in the fresh air with these five great gardening gifts for Mother’s Day.
Five Gifts Every Garden-Loving Mom Will Want
1. Gardening Gloves
Help your mom protect her hands, as well as her expensive manicure, with a new pair of gardening gloves. With so many styles and designs to choose from, you can easily find something to match your mother’s unique fashion sense. Select suede or nylon gardening gloves for a woman who appreciates tradition, or go for a pair made out of latex, ABS plastic, or even bamboo for the modern mom. Perhaps consider giving her gardening gloves with digging claws as long as she promises never to scare her grandkids with them.
2. Raised Garden Bed
Gardening is an enjoyable lifelong pastime, but squatting or kneeling can leave seniors with sore backs and knees. Help make it easier and pain-free for your mom to continue doing what she loves with raised garden beds. Depending on the height, raised garden beds can allow seniors to garden while remaining standing or can enable moms who use wheelchairs to garden in comfort and safety. Raised garden beds are available completely assembled, in kit form, or if you are handy, you can download plans online and build your own
3. Annual Flowers
Nothing says spring has arrived like a garden full of brightly colored annuals. Whether your mother decides to plant them in the ground or in a container, these hardy flowers are sure to thrive and impress her neighbors. Unlike perennials which can take a season or two to fully blossom and fill out the garden, planting annuals offer instant gratification. As a bonus, annuals don’t require extensive upkeep such as pruning and root care to help them survive throughout the year, making them as close as possible to ‘set-it-and-forget-it’ gardening.
4. Fruit Tree Seedlings
It doesn’t get any better than enjoying homegrown fruit straight from the tree. Depending on the hardiness region where your mother lives, you can choose from a wide variety of fruit tree seedlings including apples, plums, peaches, pears, and more. Growing fruit trees do take care and dedication, but you already know that your mother possesses these two qualities in spades. Why not encourage your mom to start a tradition of planting a fruit tree for every one of her grandkids?
5. A Gardening Cart
It is about time you took a little weight off your mom’s shoulders by giving her a gardening cart. With sturdy construction and ease of operation, gardening carts make the perfect replacement for unwieldy wheelbarrows. You can choose from a wide variety of carts to suit your mother’s needs including heavy-duty steel pull carts, battery-powered electric pushcarts, or lightweight polycarbonate carts which are perfect for smaller gardens. Some garden carts even come with a handy seat attachment.
