Christmas gifts for houseplant parents

Houseplants are on-trend. Teenagers, young adults and millennials have embraced the art of growing indoor plants and taken it to new heights. Cuttings and plants are changing hands for hundreds of pounds and bedsits, flats, balconies and first time homes are the stage for theatrical terrariums and houseplant collections. Whether you are buying for an expert houseplant parent or a newbie there are lots of great ways to engage with their passion and gift something to show you’ve noticed, understand and are supportive. 

The perfect present

Just like our garden plants, indoor plants need care and nurture too. Houseplant parents want their babies to be happy and healthy and they can with the NEW Award-Winning Plantsmith range. There are two gift-sets that would make perfect presents for anyone growing plants indoors. Harnessing the power and pedigree of Flower Power, the NEW Plantsmith products have been inspired by professional formulations and contain all the essential nutrients to keep houseplants in tip-top condition.

Plantsmith Houseplant Care Gift Set

Choose from the Plantsmith Houseplant Care Gift Pack that provides care and feeding solutions that are as good as they look. The gift set includes everything a houseplant parent needs to keep your indoor plants healthy; a bottle of Fortifying Houseplant Tonic and a bottle of Perfecting Houseplant Care Mist. It’s a great starter kit for anyone growing houseplants.

The Plantsmith Houseplant Cleanse and Shine Set is designed to keep your indoor plants glossy and glowing. Perfect for all your specimen plants, where pristine leaves are the focus, this gift set includes the Plantsmith Beautifying Leaf Shine Spray, which contains cold-pressed oils that condition the leaves, and grapefruit extract for anti-fungal protection. It also contains an organic cotton cloth to wipe away dust and grime and helps reveal a long-lasting healthy sheen on your precious houseplants. 

The perfect mini watering can

When space is tight and storage limited a houseplant-watering gadget that looks great and can be integrated into a plant display, as an ornament is the perfect solution. This Indoor Mini Watering Can is attractive, practical and is designed to water your indoor plants easily. Fill it with water, allow it to reach room temperature and water your plants in the morning, pouring away any excess liquid that drains through so that the plant roots are not left sitting in waterlogged compost.

Something for poking, prodding and planting

When it comes to indoor plants, our garden tools just don’t fit the bill, plus they need storing. Sometimes you just want something you can poke a hole in the compost with. A dibber or prodder that will make the perfect place to insert a cutting, sow a seed or make a planting hole. Something designed for the purpose that will save the kitchen cutlery from being used and abused for the purpose. Meet the Dibblet; it’s tough, practical and an extremely useful little tool for all those little jobs. And it’s a perfect stocking filler too. Everyone needs a Dibblet.

Fun, funky and very planty

Put the fun factor into your Christmas festivities with these very planty, funky decorations. What about our lovely Gnome, what a great stocking filler or cracker prize for anyone with a love of gardening (and gnomes). The team at Richard Jackson Garden loves our little gnome. Who do you think he looks like? If you’ve got a gardener or houseplant fan to buy for, we feel sure you’ll find some of our horticulturally inspired Christmas decorations a perfect fun present. We love the Greenhouse baubles. Or what about a Garden Shed for Granddad? There’s even a Wheelbarrow, some Welly Boots and a Watering Can.

If you are buying for a vegan, take a look at our fun fruit and vegetable Christmas tree decorations. Use them as place settings on the lunch table, pop them into homemade crackers or add them to a stocking, the possibilities are endless.
