It’s time to talk about Christmas! Here at Darlac, we’ve got some perfect Christmas gifts for gardeners in our garden tool range, from small stocking filler treats that make allotment life easier, to large loppers and axes to not only fill the stocking by the fire, but keep the firewood stocked up long after the Christmas season.
We’ve shared some of our favourite stocking filler items below to treat the gardener in your life with this festive season. These garden tools are bound to bring a smile to their face, as not only do they make great presents, but they make life easier and garden work much more fun – they’re gardening gifts that just keep on giving!
1. Hi-Lo for Hanging Baskets
The Hi-Lo for Hanging Baskets is a seemingly simple tool, but it will be a wonderful time saver for the hanging basket lover in your life. It allows hanging baskets to be watered safely from ground level, perfect for the house-proud gardener who loves to adorn the outside of their house with winter and summer baskets.
2. The Hori Hori Multi-Purpose Trowel
The Hori Hori Multi-Purpose Trowel is derived from Japanese sword making technology. A must-have tool for any keen gardener, it can be used for planting, cutting, weeding, dividing perennials, plus much more!
3. The Hand Bulb Planter
Who doesn’t love a garden full of blooming bulbs come spring? With an easy eject handle, the Darlac Hand Bulb Planter is perfect for planting bulbs, bedding plants and even potatoes! The core is discharged when the spring-loaded handle is released. The tool also comes with a handy depth gauge on the side, doing away with any guess work when it comes to the correct planting depth. The base is serrated too to help to break up any stubborn ground.
4. Bamboo Garden and Weeding Fork
Our stunning bamboo range always makes a great gardening gift. The craftmanship as well as the beauty of the Darlac Bamboo Weeding Fork is sure to be appreciated by any gardener. The handle is made from eco-friendly bamboo, a 100% sustainable source that replenishes itself within 36 months. Perfect for weeding in cultivated soil and general garden use!
5. Root Watering Funnels
These environmentally friendly Root Watering Funnels conserve water by taking it directly to the roots of the plant without wasting water in run off or evaporation. A simple gift, but one that will easily fit into a stocking and a gift that gardeners will truly appreciate.
This method of irrigation also creates healthy plants by encouraging root systems downwards in search of water rather than up to the surface. The root funnel also has a depth gauge on the side so that water can be filled to the correct level. The depth can also be increased as the plant grows. In most cases, one funnel per plant is ideal, but for larger plants, you may need to use more to distribute the water evenly. Sometimes the simplest of solutions offer the best results!
