2012 D*S Gift Guide: For Gardeners

by Grace Bonney

I have absolutely no green thumb, so I’ve worked hard to cultivate friendships with people who do. From those talented florists and gardeners I’ve learned a few skills that have helped me keep a couple plants alive in my apartment over the years. Those plants and flowers make me so happy, so this holiday season I decided to round up some great gift ideas for the green thumbs in your life. I’ve included a wide price range and everything from seed kits and terrariums to gardening tools, hoses and bird houses. I hope you’ll find something for someone on your list. xo, grace
