Bring Gardening Joy to Your Dad this Father’s Day – Are you looking for great gift ideas for gardening-loving dads? If so, we may have some super suggestions.
Men, like people of all genders, can enjoy gardening for a variety of reasons. Gardening allows individuals to connect with nature and the natural world and appreciate its beauty. We may find solace, peace, and a sense of tranquillity in spending time outdoors, tending to plants, and being surrounded by greenery.
Gardening can be a soothing and calming activity offering a sense of accomplishment when watching plants grow and thrive, this can be incredibly rewarding, it also involves various physical tasks such as digging, lifting, watering, and pruning, which can provide a form of exercise and promote physical well-being. All in all, gardening requires care, effort, and patience, and seeing the fruits of one’s labour can bring a sense of satisfaction and joy.
So, on June 18th after spoiling your pop with his favourite breakfast, why not whisk away the cutlery and replace it with a trowel with which to enjoy some great gardening adventures?!
Our friends at Burpee Europe have some inspirational ideas when it comes to seeds and planting. So, get your dad into the garden this year for a Father’s Day to remember.
Amuse…with great hues!
There is still time to sow the brand new, gold medal-winning Sunflower ‘Desire Red’, and the fabulous Aubergine ‘Violet Knight’ and if you don’t have a big garden, this will do just fine in pots on the patio too!
Find your dad’s inner Mr Fawlty with some new BASIL!
Burpee Seeds Europe has two new varieties which can be sown at any time of year and will enhance dishes, cocktails and even ice cream.
Basil ‘Batik’ is stunning to look at and even better to eat, it has significant cold tolerance and flowers late in the season, but the autumn show is worth the wait. Whilst Basil ‘Spicy Sabre’ has a distinct spicy taste making this variety perfect for Asian dishes. Even Sybil would approve!
Grow for a healthy treat!
We all want our dads to be healthy, and one way of achieving this is to grow as many colourful veggies as possible. Growing a crop of flavourful, nutrient-rich vegetables that strengthen your immune system and add vibrant hues to your outdoor area is good for the body and the soul! Planting a garden full of vibrant vegetables fosters a diverse diet loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that support your immune system, while a dazzling medley of varieties such as Radish ‘Royal Purple’ and new Tomato ‘Black Moon’ add appetizing eye candy to your garden and your salad bowl!
