12 Days of Christmas (11): Get ready to grow your own!

Elf hatWith the silly season upon us and thoughts turning to Christmas gifts we thought a few hints from the green Christmas elf wouldn’t go astray!  Over the next 12 days we will posting some Christmas gift ideas that are a little greener, useful, and perhaps more giving than what you might find on the High Street.

Of course, you will all have plenty more ideas – so please share these with us.

While December is not known as the month for gardening, there are still lots of lovely plant-themed Christmas ideas at your local garden nursery.

Pots, bulbs, seeds and tools can all make great presents and make sure you or your gift receiver are ready to go when spring comes around.

The three local garden centres listed below stock many organic and local products and their staff are fonts of knowledge 🙂

Please let us know if you know of any others!
