Gardeners Gift ideas at Red Letter Days! If you’re looking for a Christmas present for a gardener and you know they’ve already ordered all their seeds and bulbs then you might be a bit stuck for ideas. We’ve listed our favourites from Red Letter Days – a leading gift experience company in the UK.
The first one listed is a trip to Le Manoir which has amazing gardens! It’s got a magnificent two acre vegetable and herb garden (It’s ok you don’t have to do any weeding whilst you’re there!) , an English water garden, fed by natural springs, and a tranquil Japanese tea garden! If you’re looking for a lovely short break then this is just the thing. You both get to eat some amazing food too – but for a gardener a chance to walk round the amazing gardens is just too much of an opportunity to miss.
Le Manoir – originally called Great Milton Manor is set in 30 acres! The herb and vegetable garden is impressive growing 70 types of herb and over 90 vegetables!
At the cheaper end of the scale is an amazing offer for BBC Gardeners’ World (16 issues)! Perfect for the gardener in your life!
