#7. Mother’s Day Gift Buying Tips
Mother’s Day gift buying doesn’t have to be expensive.
These gifts start at around $28 but you could also give a gift from the heart that doesn’t cost you a cent.
Think about what you might have growing in your garden that you can propagate and pot-up as a sweet gift.
One idea is a mixed herb pot. Many herbs such as basil, rosemary, sage and mint can be grown from cuttings. So if you have herbs growing in your garden, you can grow a Mother’s Day gift for free!
Give yourself a 4-6 weeks time before you intend to gift your garden grown creation, to allow your cuttings to grow. Or longer for more established plants.
Whether you choose to pamper mom or help her grow(!) her passion for the garden, we hope you are inspired by one of these Mother’s Day garden gifts. And if you’re a mom who sees something here you would like your children to gift to you, why not give them a hint and share this post with them?
