Mother's Day Gift Guide for gardeners04-Mar-2019
Mother's Day is a chance to celebrate Motherhood, and the tradition to bestow them with flowers and plants on their special day never diminishes.
With so much choice, as ever, we've decided to give you a helping hand to find some fantastic gifts, all from exhibitors who you'll find at the Show in June.
Mr Fothergills is a wholly family owned and UK based company specialising in flower and vegetable packet seed for the hobby gardener.
For Mother's Day, try ‘Sweet Pea Mumsie’ with vividly coloured, large ruffled blooms with a delightful rich perfume, ideal for growing over a trellis or cut for bouquets. (£2.35 for 20 seeds). Alternatively, try ‘Cosmos Sweet Kisses’ with intricate ruffled picotee blooms which will flower throughout the summer. (£2.35 for 30 seeds)
