William Morris advised people that they shouldn’t keep anything they didn’t consider either practical or lovely in their homes. The same can be extended to gardening. However, the excellent news is that many gifts of this type are both beautiful and useful. Ordinary seeds blossom into an extraordinary flower garden. A humdrum garden tool can make weeding and planting simple. This duality is a bonus when it comes to purchasing just the right botanical present.

This seed kit is the gift that keeps giving. Species grow to an average of twenty to thirty inches tall, providing visual interest to borders and tight spaces where nothing else will thrive.
