Give the gift of gardening for a young person in the coming New Year. Consider a donation or sponsoring an 8-13 year old child for the spring session of the Children’s Vegetable Garden Program at the wonderful San Antonio Botanical Garden. For more information, please call 210-467-6575.
How about sponsoring that aspiring adult gardener in your life by attending the spring Bexar County Master Gardener class? What beginner or experienced gardener wouldn’t want such a gift! Call 210-467-6575 for more information.
A gift certificate from your favorite independent nursery always makes a uniquely fabulous last minute gift idea for any person. This would be a great start in anyone’s garden or landscape for the spring of 2012.
For that chef or gardener, cone-shaped rosemary plants are not only decorative, but also extremely fragrant and can be used with many culinary dishes.
The gift of good-quality, long-lasting gardening tools would make any gardener happy. Don’t hesitate to ask the gift recipient what they would like or need.
