Roses, tulips, and other types of flowers are a normal gift for mom on Mother’s Day, but what about Father’s Day? Some dads enjoy plants too, especially if they enjoy gardening! If dad has younger children or grandchildren, gardening is a great hobby for them to do together. Skip the typical baseball hat or tool set and get him a nice looking plant! John Mini Distinctive Landscapes provides you with some ideas for dad.
If your dad has recently decided to get into gardening, you don’t want to overwhelm him with a plant that requires a lot of work and dedication. Instead, go with a cactus garden. These include small cacti as well as succulents that don’t require much TLC. This is an artistic, creative garden that will look great on your dad’s desk at work, table at home, or in his “man cave.”
You’ve probably heard dad say, “money doesn’t grow on trees” while growing up, right? Why not circle back to your childhood and get him a tree that is popular in East Asia called the Potted Money Tree. Note that they do grow larger, so replanting is in its future, and it does require daily watering. This plant gift is both humorous and nice to have around the house!
Self-Watering Plant Pot
Dads seem to like electronics and fun gadgets. Pick any plant you want, and plant it in a self-watering pot! If your dad might forget to water his plants, don’t sweat it. He can now have a smart pot that will water his plants for him! He’ll probably study it and take it apart just to see how it works… dads.
Cottage Herb Basket
If your dad likes to cook and garden, what’s a better gift than a cottage herb basket? Not only are they beautiful, but they’re useful as well! Your dad no longer has to run to the store to get the herbs he needs, he can gather them from his little garden! It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Father’s Day is right around the corner. Get your dad something he can take care of! Whether he’s already into gardening and plants, or just thinking about it, get him started with these suggestions!
