Dish gardens are wonderful gifts during the late fall and winter months. They are attractive, easy to care for and full of life.
Our enhanced collection for 2009 includes brand new designs that include foliage, foliage with fresh cuts, and European gardens. Check out our selection here.
Generally, a dish garden will be planted in a leak-proof container or lined with plastic so they can be put on finished wood surfaces. Containers can be ceramic, metal, terra-cotta, wicker or metal.
Best of all, almost any occasion or decor can be celebrated with a dish garden. When choosing a dish garden as a gift, keep in mind the decor of the recipient. If the home is more traditional, a ceramic container with a porcelain look may look better than a garden in a wicker basket or terra-cotta pot. For an office, a non-blooming selection of plants may be easier to care for and hold up well during vacations and weekends.
Also, keep in mind that added fresh cut flowers will last up to a week. And the hardier green plants should flourish with proper care and give the recipient months, if not years, of enjoyment.
