Green Thumb Goodies

Got Green Thumb?  Channeling Mr. Greenjeans?  For aspiring gardeners, a gift for gardening pursuits is always welcome!

Target has a terrific gardening section with many festive garden stools, kneelers, gloves, and tools.  Each season they change up the colors & styles, but you can always find a neat set to give. 

I especially like these waterproof gardens shoes that masquerade as hip sneakers!

Spice It Up:  Combine this gift with any plant or a bag of seeds.  Even better, check out this clever gift of “Seed Money” to pair with your garden gift.  This is a fun gift to share with kids, as well, because they can learn about coin denominations while learning to plant.
The seeds look like plantable coins and each denomination is a different type of seed:

  • Pennies: Mix of wildflowers including Black-Eyed Susan, Spurred Snapdragon, Shirley Poppy, White Tarrow, and Sweet Alyssum
  • Nickels: Herbs including oregano, parsley, basil, chive, thyme, and sage
  • Dimes: Root crops including carrot and turnip
  • Quarters: Salad greens including bibb, Black Simpson, Salad Bowl Red, radicchio, and endive
Money may not grow on trees, but it sure is fun to plant like this!
Where to Buy:
Garden Kneeler - Target $6.24
Garden Tool Set - Target $19.99

Seed Money - available on various websites, but I found it at Leafcutter Designs.  Mixed sack of 50 coins $16.00 or full set of 180 coins with money rolls for $50.00
