Gifts for Gardeners

Posted by

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is just over a month away. Are you ready for it? Whether you’re done with your holiday shopping or just getting started (like me) – then here is what you need to know to find the perfect gift for the gardener in your family.


If your grandparents are anything like my grandparents’ then you know any sort of gardening gift is THE perfect gift for the holidays! From gift cards to nurseries or cute little garden gnomes, a gardening gift will bring a smile to their face. However, as they’ve gotten older – it’s been harder and harder for them to grow as large of a garden as they used to. So, that’s where My Garden Post comes in to play – it doesn’t require any bending or weeding and you can still grow an entire garden. In addition, it comes on 5 casters that make it easy to move. So they can move it around their deck, patio or even bring it inside for the winter.

Newbie Gardeners

Do you have friends or family who have just begun to test out their green thumb? My Garden Post is a great gift option for them as well. With the five different planters, it makes it super easy to test out different vegetables and herbs to grow. Plus, it only takes up 4 square feet, so the vertical garden is easy to maintain. Our drip irrigation system also allows new gardeners to just set a timer and forget about watering their plants. Super simple!


For your family who lives in a city and may be lacking some space, My Garden Post can be a great gift option. Since those who live in the city often don’t have a lot of space to work with, My Garden Post only takes up a corner of their space or their deck. Best of all – they can keep it within a few steps of their kitchen and grow their favorite herbs and vegetables to cook with.

Experienced Gardeners

You may wonder why an experienced gardener would need a My Garden Post. Well, the simple answer is because they’ll love it. But, the more detailed answer is because it gives them a new way to garden and they can garden all year long. Because the post only takes up 4 square feet and is set on five casters, they can grow a garden outside in the warmer months and then roll it inside to a sunny spot through the colder months.

My Garden Post vertical gardening system is now available on Amazon and Amazon Prime – so you can either add it to your own wish list or ship it out to your loved ones for free via Prime.

No matter what you decide to buy for your loved ones this holiday season, we just hope you enjoy the time you get to spend together. The team here at My Garden Post wants to wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday season!
