Unique Items Found at Edward’s

At Edward’s Garden Center, we pride ourselves on finding quality, unique items for our customers to purchase. This year, many of you may have noticed that we changed the layout of the gift shop to offer more items. We have also added a small section near our Home of Gnomes that has antique-like items for your garden.

More space means more great items for you! Here’s a look at the changes we have made in the gift shop and some of the items you can find.

Gift Shop Gifts
From air plants and wind chimes, to Fairy Garden accessories and gifts for kids, our gift shop has something for everyone. For the Fairy Garden lovers, we offer a collection that no one in the area has and each and every item is adorable. Pick up your favorites before they are gone!

Home of Gnome Antique-like Gifts
Our outside mini gift shop is full of items that have been repurposed. From painted buckets to ceramic shoes with plants growing in them, you never know what will strike your fancy.

We have so many great items in our gift shop and around the Garden Center that we can’t possibly put them all on our blog or Facebook page. You will just have to stop in to see what else we have. With Mother’s Day just a few weeks away, you may want to stop in and pick out something for the mother, grandmother or wife in your life.

Making your own personal sanctuary

Each one of us has a different idea of what a peaceful day is. For some, a peaceful day is spent just getting the kids out of the house. For others, a peaceful day means cuddling up on the coach to watch a movie. For most gardeners, a peaceful day would be spent sitting in their garden, listening to the sounds of nature and maybe enjoying a good book. What could be better than having your own personal sanctuary in your backyard to visit whenever you want? Nothing could be better.

How can your garden be turned into your own personal sanctuary? Try some of these ideas.

1. Watch a beautiful water feature
Is there anything more peaceful than sitting beside a waterfall or pond? Don’t worry if you only have a small space available. The experts at Edward’s Garden Center can find a water feature for your space. It might be a pond, a fountain, or dancing fountains. No matter what water feature you choose it will add peace and value to your garden.

There are over 18 water features at Edward’s Garden Center!

2. Let bamboo shade your sanctuary
OK, we know bamboo gets a bad rep for taking over gardens, but what other plant can double as an elegant screen and comes in so many varieties. Give bamboo a try and feel the tranquility creep into your garden.

3. Enjoy a peaceful sound with wind chimes
Another wonderfully peaceful sound is the sound of the wind bustling the wind chimes in your garden. By adding a few different sizes and shapes, you can have your very own symphony to listen to while you relaxing with an iced tea or a nice book.

4. Smell those fresh herbs
Make sure all of your senses are enjoying the peaceful feeling of your garden. Plant herbs that are known for having a beautiful smell like lavender, rosemary, basil or mint. The scents can relieve stress and set a calm mood for your evening of relaxation.

5. Wiggle your toes in the sand
Maybe your idea of a peaceful sanctuary is resting your feet in the sand and laying back in a beach chair. Why not bring the beach to your garden? You can easily create a sand box or a sand garden, where you can pull up your chair and umbrella for a nice relaxing afternoon. Visit the Garden Center this spring to pick up sand for this project.
