Grow-your-own gifts

If you grow your own food, you're not only a gardener: you're a farmer, and a cook, too. There's a wide range of presents for all three in our garden centre: here are a few ideas.

Trugs: the smooth curves of hand-made wooden trugs are the ultimate in good-looking baskets to gather fruit and veg.

Apple storing racks: no more fiddling about with cardboard boxes and newspaper: practical wooden racking holds fruit in perfect condition through winter.

Fruit pickers: those maddening apples and plums growing at the top of the tree are no longer just for the wasps: long nets on telescopic handles make picking them a cinch.

Preserving pans: most veg growers are dab hands at making chutneys and jams: a proper preserving pan gives them perfect results every time.

Lantern cloches: Glass-windowed mini greenhouses for bringing on early crops which are as ornamental as they are practical.

Hand care: After days toiling at the plot a gardener's hands are in serious need of TLC. A nailbrush, some good soap and a heavy-duty handcream specially formulated for gardeners should put things right.

Please ask the staff at our garden centre in Guilsfield​ for more information and advice about choosing gifts for gardeners who grow their own.
