Tips for Buying Plants as Gifts

Knowing a little more about the recipient’s garden will help turn your kind gift into a thoughtful one as well

Script by Danielle Sherry. Produced by Christine Alexander. Edited by Cari Delahanty.

It’s springtime, and that means nurseries and garden centers are bursting at the seams with new treasures for gardens, porches, and yards. With so many options, and holidays to celebrate too, it may be appealing to purchase a plant as a gift for a special person in your life. But hold on! There are a few tricks to buying a plant as a gift, and you’ll want to do a little homework before you buy.

In this video, we’ll give you a few suggestions about which types of plants or containers make a great gift, and what you’ll want to look out for.

The Basics of Buying a Plant as a Gift

While buying a plant is not as big a commitment as, say, giving someone a puppy, there are still some things to consider when purchasing.

Know before you go

  • Does your friend or family member have a place for this item?
  • What sort of light does their yard have? You’ll want to keep light needs in mind if you’re choosing a plant that will go in the yard.
  • Do they have the resources to care for something large, or is a smaller plant more their speed?

These questions will help you decide if a hanging basket, perennial, or even a tree might be the best choice for your gift recipient.

Remember, people who love plants LOVE plants, so they’ll probably be happy with whatever you give, but spending a little extra time figuring out their gardening style, favorites, and restrictions will help turn your kind gift into a thoughtful one to boot. Plus, since a plant will last longer than cut flowers, your gift recipient will have years to enjoy their present (and think fondly of the one who gave it to them).

Happy hunting!
