Every gardeners knows that high quality pruning tools are an investment that will last years and be used often. Invest in a brand new pair, or buy some accessories like the suave leather holster pictured.

Garden Gifts for the Botanically-Minded Mom

Posted by Green Acres Nursery & Supply on Apr 28, 2016 6:38:06 PM

DSC04225.jpgMother's Day is upon us, so you may be searching for the one thing that will make Mom feel special–not just for the day, but for years to come. If your mom is botanically-minded and enjoys the simple things that remind her of her garden, then Green Acres Nursery & Supply has something we're sure she'll love. 

Not too long ago, a small group of the Green Acres team went in search of items we know gardeners will treasure. Being planting enthusiasts ourselves, we have a pretty keen understanding of what gardeners—with thumbs of all colors—enjoy. We found tools that will last generations, small projects that will get your hands dirty, and things that will personalize your garden retreats. Here's a look at a few things we found...
