Mother’s Day Gift Ideas From The Garden

Mother’s Day is around the corner and sometimes it can be a challenge to find the perfect gift for the special mom in your life!  Here are a few ideas to help you decide!

For the Foodie Mom: Get her some wonderful extracts from Meso Nutso Pantry

For the Bird Loving Mom: Get her a beautiful bird feeder

For the Sentimental Mom: If your mom appreciates a thoughtful gift that brings back memories of past times, finding a rose with a special name can be very meaningful.

For the Mom who wants your time:   If this is your mom, a Johnson Brother’s Gift Card is the best gift you can give her! Include a note that lets her know you will be taking her on a trip to Johnson Brothers to pick out exactly what she wants.

For the Mom who is a bee lover: Give her some local honey from The Queen’s Bounty.

For the Mom who appreciates art: If this is your mom, give her a print of a flower from Lisa Livoni Art.

For the Mom who loves a cocktail: Give her a cocktail infusion kit from Rokz.

For the Mom who loves to clean: Give her an assortment of Mrs. Meyers Cleaning Products!

If you still can’t decide after seeing these ideas, a Johnson Brothers home-grown hanging basket is always a good choice!

Come by and we can help you pick out the perfect gift for the perfect mom in your life.

Lady Bugs & Praying Mantids Are Here!

Releasing live lady bugs in your garden is a wonderful way to naturally guard against pests that will ruin your vegetables and flowers.  Lady bugs will eat dozens of pests per day.  The adults will lay eggs throughout the gardening season.  Lady bugs will protect your garden from Aphids, Spider Mites, Thrips, Mealy-bugs, Scales, White fly eggs and more!

Besides all of these benefits to releasing lady bugs in your garden, kids LOVE them! It is a fun way to get your kids outside and helping in the garden too!
