Father’s Day Gardening Gifts – Useful Tools to Help Make Dad’s Life Easier

Father’s Day Gardening Gifts

I know, I know, Father’s Day is this weekend and I’m just now posting ideas. However, there have to be so of you out there who are like me and wait until the last minute, right? We live in the Midwest, which can get rather cold throughout the Winter. So, summer is the time we get outdoors and enjoy the weather. My husband and I love gardening, so I’d like to suggest some Father’s Day gardening gifts for the man in your life.

Father's Day gardening gifts to make the busy dad's life easier.

My husband is a hard worker throughout the week (and some Saturdays). He looks forward to enjoying the outdoors, when he can, on the weekend. He actually loves landscaping and having the whole family involved. Why not get him some new items for the summer hobby he enjoys? Plus, make it easier in the process!

Here are a few ideas to get you started:


    • Snip and a Cut: I’m pretty sure deadheading the dead flowers on a plant is a therapeutic outlet. If not, it should be added to the list! A well-pruned plant not only looks better and blooms more, but it is healthier too. Centurion Brand Pro-Adjustable Bypass Pruner ($20.99) cuts through any size branch, making Dad a hero.

    • Compost Tumbler: What better gift for an eco-friendly dad than a compost tumbler? Composting enriches the soil, saves water and reduces landfill waste! We were composting with a DIY composter, but eventually, it fell apart. This would be our ideal composter, especially for our small garden, the Back Porch, ($199) makes compost in as little as 4-6 weeks. Mantis.com

    • Plants of Steel: This year, forget a tie. Let your man’s green thumb shine with a hard-to-kill Plant of Steel ($ varies) from Costa Farms. Caring for them is super easy. Choose from five low-maintenance varieties to fit dad’s style. Available at your local grocery or garden retailer.

  • Strong, Bigger Plants: Dads are always looking for shortcuts. Enter the new soil additive from Earth Alive, Soil Activator. Simply water into your vegetable garden or flower garden and voila, bigger, strong plants to brag about. This is a definite must for us with our new vegetable garden, thanks to my husband. He planted broccoli, tomatoes, and cucumber. EarthAlive.com
