Northwest Gardening: Christmas Gifts for the Yard

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

'Twas the week before Christmas and all through the yard, not a gift had been given, not even a card...

Northwest-Marianne Binetti-113011-1

The tools were all hung in the carport with care, with hopes that St. Nicholas soon would repair: The shovel, with blade all rusty and cracked; the pitchfork still shiny, but handle it lacked. But wait—there's still time! It's not Christmas yet, and gardening gifts are the quickest to get! Forget the silk tie, the fluffy new sweater—give something to make the garden grow better. For a gift that is shiny, don't be a fool. It's not a dumb diamond but a sparkling new tool.

My favorite new tool (pictured above):
Corona eGrip Steel Hoe/Cultivator

Why? Two tools in one, with the most comfy handle.

The most practical stocking stuffers for any Northwest gardener:
Sluggo Monterey Slug Bait

Why? This stuff really works—and it’s not only safe for kids and pets, there’s also a bit of nitrogen in the product that feeds your plants.

Westchester 3-Pack Garden Gloves, Woman’s sizes

Why? Breathable, seamless but waterproof gloves perfect for our climate. Amazing price for three pairs.

Hot Item, and the best buy of the season:
Garden Treasure Black Steel Wood-Burning Fire

Why? Great sale price, turns patio into winter living room.

The Outdoor Decorating splurge:
Eden New Haven Arbor

Why? Add a garland of fresh fir or some Christmas lights to this classic arbor and your outdoor decorating is done—plus you’ll have all winter to think about what vine to plant.

…so I heard him exclaim without begging for pardon,
Happy Gardening to all, and to all a great garden!
