| 12/13/2013 3:14:00 PM


It’s that time of year—the time when we get absolutely stumped about what gifts to choose for our family and friends. If you happen to know a gardener who dwells in an apartment and gardens in containers or other small spaces, you’re probably especially stumped on what to give. “Traditional” gardening items probably just won’t work. But there are a few great gift ideas that will make an apartment gardener happy.

5 Gifts for Gardeners

1. Windowsill Greenhouse
$4.00 - $15.00 each

This is a fantastic gift for seed starters that don’t have the space, or the need, for the larger seed starting trays. Most sets come with a drip tray, seed plug inserts, soil pellets and a clear plastic dome lid. With proper care and indoor use, they can be used for several seasons, making them a gift that really keeps on giving.

2. Coir Bricks
$3.00 - $8.00 each



Never lug giant bags of potting soil up several flights of stairs again! Coir bricks are the ultimate container gardening planting medium. Made from coconut shell fiber, coir is lightweight and compact, making it easy to store until use. Reconstitute the fiber with warm water, and it will expand to five times its packaged volume! That’s more than enough “soil” for a couple of windowsill greenhouses or a few pots. Another bonus? It’s a renewable resource, so it’s easy on the environment.
