It might feel a bit odd to give a knife as a gift, but we can assure you any serious gardener will love this Serrated Greens Knife from Johnny’s Selected Seeds!

The Park Seed Easy Tunnel is an easy and inexpensive way to get started with season extension techniques! They offer convenient telescoping low tunnels covered with either poly plastic, fleece row cover, or netting depending on the desired degree of protection. The best part is how easy it is to move the tunnels around the garden to where they’re needed.

Hamilton Beach Dehydrator

While technically a kitchen gadget, the Hamilton Beach Dehydrator is the perfect gift for an avid gardener who finds themselves with gluts of produce that need preserving! Having a dehydrator means that fresh garden fruits, veggies, and herbs can be enjoyed year round- as dehydrated produce can be stored for several months- and helps prevent any precious harvests from going to the compost pile!

Spider Farmer Seedling Heat Mat Kit

A seedling heat mat might seem like an unnecessary extra piece of equipment, but for some seeds such as peppers having the added heat in the soil is crucial for good germination rates. Be sure to choose a heat mat set that comes with a thermostat and probe such as this Spider Farmer Seedling Heat Mat Kit to avoid over- or under-heating the soil. For more information on how to use seedling heat mats check out Heat Mats for Starting Seeds.

No more struggling to drop tiny seeds into rows by hand! The seeder comes with several different seed plates and they can also be customized to drop a huge variety of seeds. The handy row marker ensures that rows stay straight with the correct spacing- which is not only nice to look at but also makes weeding a much more efficient task.
