Not finished your Christmas shopping yet and short on inspiration?  Try some of these gift ideas for your mini gardeners.

Burgon & Ball Children’s Hand Fork and Trowel

Top quality child-sized gardening tools made in the UK, £7.95 each.  We’ve tried and tested these and they’re the best children’s hand tools we’ve come across.  Rough age guide: 5 to adult (have to confess to using these myself when the girls aren’t looking).

A Packet of Seeds

The Kew Collection for Kids has a range of interesting seeds for children.  The perfect stocking filler at just £1.69.

Scarecrow Kit

Searching for something for the child who has everything?  Try one of these kits containing all you need to build your very own scarecrow.  £25 from Hen and Hammock.

Elephant Watering Can

Hard to resist a smile when watering plants with these.  Or soaking your brother/sister /friend in the garden/bath.  At £5 each will you be able to stop at just one?

Santa’s Grotto Kit

Another great stocking filler at just £3.95.  A beautifully designed little kit from Another Studio – construct your own Santa’s Grotto and plant the cress seeds to grow a mini forest garden.  We love it!

A Children’s Vegetable Garden

Fancy growing your own but not quite sure where to start?  For £34.99 Rocket Gardens will send your child 92 baby vegetable plants between May and August, suitable for filling 8 square metres of ground, raised beds or patio pots.

Have endless fun making your own plant pots from recycled newspaper with one of these wooden gadgets.  £12.99 from Crocus.
