Gardening Gift Certificates

By Phran Novelli

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - OK, don't say I didn't give you any ideas, gifts from your garden we've discussed so far include: presents from your own plants -packets of seeds to potted-up herbs, divided perennials, or shoots from a shrub. You can infuse booze, or create sachets and recipe packets from herbs you grow. Create a coloring book, notecards, or calendars from your garden photos. Craft holiday centerpieces from greens you gathered. Make pretty packages of produce you picked, frozen or canned - pickled veggies, homegrown/homemade tomato sauce, or jars of jams.

In addition to all these gift ideas, if you're totally out of time and money you can download a pdf of my Garden Gift Certificates. Just print them out and fill in how many hours you'll give to help a grandparent or neighbor dig, weed or plant next year. That's a gardening gift that's free, fast, and available even at the very last minute on Christmas Day.
