Best gardening mugs for 2022

Emma Bridgewater Potting Shed Mug

Emma Bridgewater Potting Shed Mug

You can always rely on Emma Bridgewater when it comes to charming crockery. This gardening mug displays a busy potting shed scene, and you'll find illustrations on the inside of the mug too. You'll spot tools, pots, watering cans and even a few chickens so it's a lovely option for those with a bustling garden. With a sturdy base and weighty feel, it's ideal for daily use and as a half pint mug, it's a solid choice for avid tea drinkers.

If you're not a tea or coffee fan, fill it up with your favourite soup for a quick garden lunch stop.

Easter Embossed Stoneware Mug

Yellow stoneware mug

Stoneware mugs are great for outdoor use thanks to their chip resistant nature, and they offer a rustic and attractive finish too. This yellow mug with its delicate plant-inspired design is a gorgeous and cheery choice for Spring. Fill it with mini chocolate eggs as an Easter gift and surprise a loved one.

As an added bonus, it's microwave safe, so you can reheat any forgotten cups of coffee.

Personalised Botanical Mug

For an extra special touch, why not opt for a personalised gardening mug? This Anthropologie mug features a letter of your choice, so it's a thoughtful gift for botanical fans. Another stoneware pick, it's dishwasher and microwave safe so it's as practical as it is pretty.

Wild Foods Enamel Mug

Illustrated with rock samphire, yarrow, wild radish, nettle and wild garlic, this gardening mug is a wonderful choice for the foragers in your life. The hardy yet light nature of enamel makes it a top choice for picnics as it can handle a few scrapes and knocks.

Keep it in your shed so you're always prepared when a hot flask of tea emerges, or fill it with keys, leftover twine and small tools for a tidy potting bench.

If you want to keep your drink toasty and bug free, you can choose to add on a little lid.

Sophie Allport Green Fingers Mug

White mug with garden design

This Sophie Allport mug offers a timeless and elegant design, and as a nice touch, you can find the words 'Green Fingers!' written on the inside. It's made of fine bone china, so it's a more delicate choice you might want to keep for special occasions. You could buy a few and create an eye-catching kitchen cabinet display to show off the colourful and fun artwork.

This gardening mug comes in a gift box, so it's a super gardening gift option, and this makes it easy to wrap too which is always a bonus.
