There are many gifts you could give anyone who loves to get their hands dirty with gardening: from kneeling pads to make their weeding job easier, to more exquisite gifts like this watering can garden decor, or this adorable outdoor turtle statue with succulents that light up.

Sometimes we’d love gardening, but for one reason or another, it’s just not possible. It could be a lack of time, lack of space, or a bad back or knees. Here are some special gifts for gardening grandmothers.

It’s no fun to wish for something but not be able to do it. Here are a few gift ideas if your mother loves gardening but can’t physically get out in the garden.

A window bird feeder so she can watch birds whenever she wants to, some throw pillows for her sofa, or a butterfly door knocker. Or how about a flower wreath for her door?

A succulent garden would be great too! These ceramic owl pots are so adorable! And here’s a collection of 20 unique succulent plants you can include to go with the cute owl pots.

Flower gifts for mom’s special day

If she loves flowers, you have an easy job. Just go to any local nursery and get her a few pots of flowers.

Marigolds, morning glories, poppies, and the cypress vine are all great examples of flowering plants that are also easy to grow for both novice or experienced gardeners.

Some of my favorites are hydrangea flowers and rose bushes.
