A gardener's Christmas list
Nobody was happier than I was to open my Christmas presents last year and find a soil knife and a pair of Felco pruners.
And they say gardeners are hard to buy for....
It is that time of year again when we offer our suggestions for what to purchase the gardener in your life.
This year, we turn to our friends at Garden Rant, where contributing blogger Susan Harris has done her retail homework and is making a list and checking it twice.
Among her suggestions? Hand tools (such as soil knives and pruners) are always a hit, as are hats, birdfeeders and weather instruments, compost bins, rain barrels and rain gauges.
Check out Susan's list, but then take a look at the readers' comments. Among the suggestions of the Garden Rant followers are gift certificates for some of our favorite catalogs, such as Old House Gardens and Brent and Becky's Bulbs.
