30 Gifts for the Gardener

by Grace Bonney

As much as I wish I was able to have my own garden, I’m so thankful for the friends and family who’ve been kind enough to share theirs with me this year. From fresh tomatoes at my parents’ home in Virginia to herbs from a friend’s Brooklyn terrace garden, I felt the garden love even in my concrete-covered space. So to thank those people who let me share in the rewards of their green thumb expertise, I’ve rounded up 30 fantastic gifts for the gardener, florist or plant-lover in your life. And if you’re like me and just want to live in a world with a little more flower-love, there are a few accessories in here (like flower petal-embedded sunglasses) that work for even those without a green patch of their own. xo, grace
