Tools, an essential part of gardening!  This is the gift to spend the extra dollars for quality.  You won’t regret it. One of the top tools is the Hori Hori Japanese gardening knife.  Hori means “digging” in Japanese. This knife has been called the MacGuyver of gardening tools.  A brand that comes highly recommended at a reasonable price is Nisaku for about $22 bucks.

For those who are tired of trying to pull weeds from pavers, comes the patio knife.   It’s eco friendly since no chemicals are involved!   Use the hook side for joints, and the knife side for beveled edges. Constructed of tempered boron steel, with ash hardwood handle.

As I’ve said before, I love my Burpee tomato cages!  The pro series offers sturdy, stable 4-sided cages that work well for flowers too. The non-rusting, long-lasting galvanized wire cages fold flat for easy storage.  I can’t tell you the number of cheap cages I’ve fought with and finally tossed!

I like the green ones but they also have red

I just came across an herb drying rack.  You can use this to dry those herbs by placing it in a cool dark room, or you could hang it flowers, garlic and fresh herbs freshening you kitchen!   

Wanna see the process of compost making? HA, this educational gift breaks it down! This  compost bin might be fun for an adult too!
