Tick off your Christmas gift list with the celebrated gardening store The Chelsea Gardener
Make a note of Thursday 27 November in your diary – The Chelsea Gardener is holding a 10 per cent discount shopping event in-store from 6-8pm.
With so many treasures on offer – from top-quality fresh trees to a wide selection of decorations and gifts – we at Livingetc Towers were tempted to buy up the whole Christmas emporium, but we’re not that greedy! Instead, we’re sharing some of the highlights with you. (Note, all prices here are
before the 10 per cent discount.)
So first up, say hello to this cheeky chappy robin decoration,
£7.99 – made from quilted felt and with real twigs for a tail, he’s a natural choice for a woodland-themed scheme.
More into nostalgia? These beautifully detailed circus dogs decorations, dressed head to paw in festive attire, £11.99 each, are fun ornaments for the tree.
Gifts-wise, we doff our cap to these concrete Chapeaux. Here, they’re pictured as planters (with a kind of cool René Magritte vibe), but they’d also make novel wine coolers or even fruit bowls. The Bowler costs £48.99, while the Top Hat is £54.99.
Containing seeds, compost and a set of instructions, this Micro Giardini can of basil, £8.99, would be perfect on a kitchen windowsill. Simply water, wait for the herb to grow and snip when you want to spice up your cooking. It’s an ideal stocking filler for a grow-your-own cook.
Planning ahead? Feast your eyes on this Cacoon, from £175.
What could be more lovely than cosying up with a loved one on a summer evening?
Besides gifts and decs, check out The Chelsea Gardener’s selection of top-notch
plants, seeds and bespoke natural foliage wreaths by Kitten Grayson (trained by über-florist Nikki Tibbles).
