Great Gardens – Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

If you were a little late in ordering roses this Valentine’s Day, Phyllis Stevens has a few suggestions for you.

There are a number of plant and garden-related gifts available at your favorite greenhouse or nursery in which plants make up only a fraction of the gift. Decorative pots and planters combined with your sweetheart’s favorite plant are one such gift that gets the Phyllis Stevens stamp of approval, as are heart-shaped water bottles that hold long-stemmed flowers.

Others include bird feeders and personalized baskets of flowers and other items, garden signs, antique buckets, cast iron words combined with flowers of your choice or other garden accessories that, when complete with an arrangement, can make a welcome addition to the garden as well as a heartwarming, personalized gift.

Or, if you want to keep it simple, consider giving a rose bush, an extremely hardy flower setup that can be planted outside and will make a lasting gift for seasons to come.
