Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is tomorrow. Don’t panic. We have your Mother’s Day gifts covered! Here are some last minute ideas for your mom, or your grandma or for the kids to get their mom.

Hanging flower basket
The gift of flowers always brightens a woman’s day. We know there are flower tents all over the place, but we promise if you buy your flower basket at Edward’s the quality will make an outstanding difference in how long the flowers last. Your mom will be able to enjoy it all season.

Sign up (and pay) for some seminars
Maybe your mom has everything or doesn’t want anything. Signing up for an Edward’s Garden Center seminar is a great gift because you are promising your mom time together. Take a look at our event list to see which seminars your mom would like to attend. Then see Debi in our gift shop to sign up. Our container gardening seminar on June 5th is a great choice. (Hint hint)

Wind chimes and yard decor
Give your mom a piece she can showoff to the whole neighborhood. We have a large selection of wind chimes, statuary, yard signs, birdhouses and so many more unique gift items. Stop in to our gift shop to pick something out.

Gift certificate
A gift certificate to Edward’s Garden Center is the perfect gift for any occasion. Stop in and get one in any denomination. 🙂

Hopefully we gave you some ideas for the special mother in your life. See you tomorrow at the Garden Center!

Get inspired to Container Garden!

This Sunday, the Garden Center is hosting a container gardening seminar. Container gardening can be a great hobby that will make your garden beautiful, unique and colorful. In honor of this seminar, we thought we would share some container gardening inspiration.

Traditional Container Garden
A traditional container garden is your typical, everyday flower pot with flowers in it. There are millions of combinations that can make up a container garden. Generally, you want to chose plants that like the same amount of sunlight and water as the ones they are sharing a home with.

Fairy Garden or Miniature Garden
A popular trend over the last few years, fairy gardens or miniature gardens fall into the container garden category. These gardens are typically themed and involve miniature versions of items. For example, you could make an entire beach scene using small plants that look like those on the beach and by adding a small beach chair or umbrella, you can tie everything into your theme. Some fairy gardens are actually made in the ground, but most live in pots, barrels and other containers.

Succulent Containers
Succulents make the perfect low maintenance container garden. Almost any container that has good drainage can be used for succulents. Since succulents are slow growers, you can be sure they won’t out grow their container too soon and you can fit a few plants into a small space.

How creative can you get with your container garden?

Unique Container Gardens
You can get really creative with container gardening and that’s the reason why it is such a great hobby! You can use almost ANYTHING as the starting point for a container garden: an old wheel barrow, a wooden barrel, a metal watering can, birdbaths, baskets and urns. As long as the container you choose has drainage, it can become a beautiful garden.

Hopefully, we inspired you to try a few container gardens of your own this season. If you need help getting started, sign up for our free seminar.
