Though the expert gardener won't need them, there are step-by-step instructions and growing tips if you have this in mind for a beginner.
Garden Themed Hamper Gift
Featuring everything a novice gardener needs, this large case of goodies includes tools, seeds and treats.
The hamper comes with a pair of all-weather gardening gloves and a wooden hand planter tool to help with the gardening itself, as well as a mix of dahlia seeds so they can begin to cultivate their green space.
With treats for your loved ones including a blend of English teas and biscuits included, there’s also gifts designed to attract nearby birds such as a wild garden coconut feeder with sunflower seeds, and a birds peanut pack.
To personalise the gift you can also include a message in the hamper upon request.
Lovewildbirds Gardening Hamper
For those who want to cultivate the bird life in their garden, you can make sure their feathered friends feel welcome with this gardening hamper specifically aimed at any hobbyist ornithologists.
The kit includes a wide range of bird feeders, from hanging cups and hanging candles, to nutty log rolls that come with a container to keep them in. There’s also clean sheep’s wool to encourage birds to nest, so you can hopefully give your loved one the gift of birdsong.
Birds, Bees and Butterflies Seedbom Gift Box
Designed for the guerrilla gardener, these eco-friendly seed bombs can be dotted around a loved one’s garden to help encourage wildlife such as birds, bees and butterflies. The gift set includes four different seed bombs including Pollinator Beebom and Featherbom which contain a mix of wildflower seeds.
The choice of seeds have been chosen specifically from the RHS selection of those that are perfect for pollinators, so you can be confident that they'll have the area buzzing with life.
Suitable for garden use or a simple pot, these would make for a colourful and friendly gift for the keen gardener in your life.
Grown Your Own Quirky Gardener's Gift Set
Another one for the more experimental gardeners, this kit encourages the growth of quirky plants. These include a purple vegetable kit that will grow carrots, aubergines and sweetcorn, a bonsai kit to grow a selection of small trees, and a cocktail kit so they can relax with a drink when the work is done.
This kit is 100% plastic free and includes 10 biodegradable bamboo pots, so would be a great choice for those who are equally curious and eco-conscious.
Deluxe Garden Hamper
A bumper kit for a loved one who spends all their time in the garden, this hamper includes everything they'll need to take care of their green space, and themselves. The gift set comes with a pair of all weather gloves that boast a good grip, as well as a trowel and a bumper pack of 25 bulbs. There's also a practical pack of garden waste sacks.
When they need to take a well earned rest from work they can indulge in a cup of tea and cookies which are included, and when the gardening is complete they can cleanse themselves of the soil and sweat with the hair and body wash. There are even treats for the birds included, such as a coconut bird feeder.
A Box Of Little Things Garden Gift Hamper
Full of gardening essentials as well as treats, this is a green-finger hamper that aims to be both practical and relaxing for those who receive it. There’s plenty of handy equipment including gardening gloves, plant labels and a garden themed notebook and pencil to keep track of their green space, as well as top quality seeds with a packet for collecting them.
For those moments when it’s time to take a break, you can also choose from one of four mug designs that feature birds or bees, a chocolate bar and herbal tea. To wash the soil away there’s also a mini handmade bar of soap, and a scented candle as a final reward for when the work is done.
