The hustle and bustle of the holiday season and seemingly ever-increasing materialism often leave thoughts of the garden at the back doorstep. Actually, this is a great time of the year for like minded gardeners to share their bounty. Homemade jams and jellies made by you from the fruit grown in your garden makes a very thoughtful and customized gift. Gardeners are great for sharing be it wisdom, tricks of the trade or plant divisions so keep this in mind as you consider what to share with your family and loved ones. Never underestimate a good gardening book or catalogue so that the recipient can nuzzle in with a warm cup of cheer and drift away into the planning of next year’s fun and fancy.
