Dig It: Christmas Gifts (17 Dec 2018)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// WRS // By Tay Kinnear // Dec. 17, 2018


This is the second show in our two-part special on Christmas and holiday gifts for gardeners. Last week we were looking at gifts with a little bit of luxury, so this week we are looking at practical gifts and those for gardeners and naturalists of all ages. Our first suggestion is a pair of Ultimate Thermal Gloves from Briars, available at Schilliger and lots of other garden centres, for the very reasonable price of 9.90 CHF.

We also really liked this mini greenhouse kit from radis et capucine, with several different variants of what you might like to grow first. In store at Schilliger and other garden centres for 29.90CHF or online for 29,95 euros.

If you would like to try growing something unusual, then why not try growing your own mushrooms? These new kits are easy enough for kids to manage, with a bit of supervision, or to have a go yourself. 13,90 CHF in store at Schilliger and many other garden centres like Landi, Jumbo and even Aldi. Radis et capucine also have a very cute kit, available online if you want to have someone else post it for you. 



If you have enjoyed seeing butterflies at Papiliorama or in store at various garden centres, then perhaps have a try at raising your own butterflies. The Papilionessa kit from Andermatt Biogarten is 64.50 in store and the same price online.
