Does your mom love working in the garden? There’s no place my mother would rather be than working in her English rose garden with over 200 various rose bushes. Last year I bought her a David Austin rose for Mother’s Day, which she picked out to add to her 200 plus rose garden, and this year I’m planning on doing the same. Since her birthday is the Monday after Mother’s Day, I will also be adding thisΒ David Austin rose guideΒ which she has told me on numerous occasions is a must. With over 200 roses to look after, countless dahlias blooming all summer, lovely hydrangea blooms, pretty privet (and more) we are constantly on the hunt for the perfect vase, pruning shears that don’t give us arthritis or carpal tunnel, sturdy gloves (my mom is having hand surgery on Tuesday because a thorn became embedded in her hand because she used cheap gloves…don’t make the same mistake) and so much more! Since we spend so much time in the garden, I’ve compiled a list of some of our must have garden tools and gifts for mom this Mother’s Day!

 

 

My mom has one of the prettiest gardens in town, and she thinks it has something to do with the soil. She swears by Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix:

My mother swears by Perlite, and won’t plant anything without it:

If my mom had worn sturdy gloves while in the garden, she wouldn’t have to have surgery on her hand. Don’t make the same mistake! Thorns are nothing to play around with!!!! (Just lookin’ out for ya).

I enjoy using small lightweight pruning shears while cutting roses for bouquets. I would not recommend small shears when pruning large branches, though.
