Garden Inspired Gifts
But there are some other gift ideas that people often overlook. Take a look at these products that are perfect for gifting to the garden lover on your list!
When I first heard about these seed packs I just laughed out loud. Of course, we know that it’s impossible to grow a beagle or a poodle, But what a fun gift idea for the gardener and dog lover in your life. I took the seeds out this week and planted my ‘dogseeds‘ and if everything goes as planned, I’ll have some tasty beefsteak tomatoes in a couple of months.
Here’s a gift that’ll grow on everyone…a packet of DOGSEEDS! Yes, growing a dog from seeds sounds ridiculous. But so does “Mooba-Toober-Groober” (especially if you say it really fast)! So give a gift of hope… give DOGSEEDS… something you can be sure they don’t already have.www.dogseeds.com

The Seedling That Didn’t Want to Grow
This story about a reluctant seedling packs a powerful message about the benefits of being different.
It’s early spring and below the earth’s surface seeds are just starting to sprout. One by one they stretch through the dirt and towards the sun, extending their shoots and leaves and growing tall. All except for one seedling, who isn’t quite ready. As most of the seeds transform into strong flowers, they block out the sun from the one left behind. In the end, this little seed turns into a flower that’s just as beautiful and healthy as all the others.The Seedling That Didn’t Want to Grow
