Christmas wish list: Our gardening kit stocking-fillers
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, a time to spread love and Christmas cheer. And what better way to do that than with personalised gardening kits to suit each member of the family? Give your sister who has a green thumb some bulbs to plant. Indulge your bookworm cousin with his next favourite horticultural read. Perhaps you’d like to gift your little niece her very own GrowHomeBucket® so she can try her hand at growing potatoes. And maybe you’d like to give your dad some vegetable seeds so he can finally grow the veggie garden of his dreams.
Our Christmas wish list top 10

Comprehensive and easy to understand, The Bulb Book by Charles Barnhoorn is an inspiring read for South African gardeners, and covers all aspects of selecting and planting bulbs, as well as bulb and soil care.
