Mother’s Day is tomorrow and some of us (myself included) are coming up with last minute gifts. My mother would not be up to any extensive gardening. But she does like to have flowers growing in containers on her patio. She lives in a senior community, and I think that perhaps a great gift would be to invite her and her friends to a hands-on container gardening workshop hosted on the community lawn. My mom would appreciate the time and attention.
This blog that I wrote for the Great American Seed Up describes a few other ideas for giving the gift of gardening to your mother (or any other loved one).
