Grow with KARE: Last minute gifts for gardeners

Christmas is right around the corner but there is still time to get a great gift for the gardener in your life!

We asked Bachman's, the Minnesota Horticulture Society, and the U of M Landscape Arboretum to send us three of their favorite last minute gifts for the gardener and this is what they came up with.

Bachman's gifts-

Burgeon and Ball Gift Set and Kneelo

Endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, this gift set is decorated with the elegance of Chinese watercolors and features tools engineered to the highest quality standards. Stainless steel heads are durable and rust-resistant. Presented in a beautiful and stylish box, this set makes an easy and thoughtful gift for your favorite gardener.

Arboretum's gifts:


Give family and friends a gift they will enjoy year-round at the #1 Botanical Garden in the country! Memberships give many perks, including getting into the Arb FREE 363 days a year for families and a chance to get kids into nature. Also, reciprocal garden entry to more than 350 botanical gardens in the U.S., retail discounts on site and at the AppleHouse, class discounts and many more! With 1200 acres and more than 20 flower gardens and 12 miles of hiking trails, just think about all the amazing possibilities for a friend or for a family!


Research shows adults prefer experiences to material things! More than 20,000 adults took classes at the Arboretum this year so you know they've got to be good! From sketching in the gardens, to cooking classes with noted chefs to photographing raptors, there's something wonderful for anyone on your list.
