Gardening Gifts for Mom

We all have a mom in one form or another and recognizing her for everything she has done for us can be overwhelming. Give the mom in your life the gift of gardening this year! Whether it's a new hobby or an old love, gifts for the gardening mom are ones that last a lifetime. Every mom wants flowers, so skip the cut ones this year and give her the blooms that keep on coming. Here are some of our best ideas for mom that will show her that the love between you is only growing. 



One of the best gifts we can give Mom is one that keeps on growing with her all season long. We have many choices for mixed containers. You can either make one yourself, with an assortment of different colored blooms, or you can grab one of our pre-potted containers or hanging baskets, ready for any porch or patio. 

If you are new to plants or are unsure what the mom you are shopping for would want or need, spark up a conversation with one of our Green Team members to help you decide on some great color combinations, as well as care tips for a show-stopping combo for Mom! Our Green Team is also available to put together your container combo for her in-store, so if you don’t have space or time to pot up your picks, we’ve got you covered. 

Choosing the perfect plants for Mom can be overwhelming, especially when there are so many great choices to pick from! Here are some of our favorite container options for spring blooms: 

  • Mandevilla
  • Petunias
  • Sweet Potato Vine
  • Impatiens 
  • Roses
  • Hydrangeas
  • Peonies
