1. Berry Bushes


The most popular answer with gardeners saying they’d like more berry bushes and perennial plants. Buying potted fruit plants and trees is the perfect gift since your gardener friend can plant them out at any time of the year. Here’s some ideas:

  • Black Raspberry Plants – will grow in warmer climates as well as temperate
  • Blueberry bush – this ‘Bluecrop’ is one of the most popular varieties available
  • Blueberry plants “Pink Lemonade” – these blueberries are actually pink!
  •  Miracle Berry Plant – eating the berries from this plant will change the flavor of anything sour to incredibly sweet! The actual berries are hard to come by and usually quite expensive making this bush very special indeed.
