Gifts From The Garden - Home | Facebook

I love the little surprises the garden provides. I had two surprises this holiday season from my expanding collection of Bromeliads from garage sale finds. Bromeliads were new to me as a garden perennial when we moved to South Florida six years ago. I find them really interesting and wanted to try some, soon finding they are very expensive, people who sell them have little to offer in terms of how to place and grow, on top of that I suffer from what my father called ‘cheap Scotch heritage’. Spending $80.00 for one perennial that may or may not make it, not happening in my garden.

Experience tells me the more expensive the plant the more likely Alan the greyhound will dig it up or sit on it..oops. I began noticing Bromeliads for sale at garage sales – no one knew the names,  but I knew they would thrive in my garden if people were selling excess plants. And they usually cost 5 bucks! Win, win. Plant and wait a couple of years..

The flowers from these perennials take a bit to get going but they tend to last a long time. I watched the big pink bud with baited breath and finally it opened.

If you love to garden, there's a fair bet that you can find some fantastic items from your garden to give to others as gifts. In this article, you'll discover a few ways in which you can give gifts to people straight from your garden. In each case, be sure to add labels and to make it clear that the plant produce comes from your garden.

“What if we were to tell you that there is a faster and more affordable way to survive this Festive Season? By leveraging your garden, you can provide gifts which are heart-felt and affordable”, says Chane Hendricks, Garden Master business manager.

Stock up on some vases of different shapes and sizes, preferably clear glass as you will be able to see the greenery through the glass. 

Foliage such as Eucalyptus, Ferns, Fern Pellaea, Ficus Moclame Bushy and Ivy are good choices to make full, high, festive arrangements. For the finishing touch add a handwritten card with a wooden peck to the vase.
