Looking for something you can wrap and put under the tree? Plants don’t generally do so well shut up in boxes; nevertheless, G*H has plenty to offer in the way of gifts for the gardener or garden-loving person in your life. You can find everything from hostess gifts to a pair of rather substantial urns.
The Green Man is a kind of cultural constant in that many ancient peoples had some version of him. He (apparently he’s nearly invariably a “he”) is a man made of leaves, sometimes sprouting vines or fruits. The Green Man is nature incarnate, representing fertility, the cycle of growth and rebirth. Start your Green Man collection with this one from Flat Earth Designs (7″ w x 12″ h): $24

In some ways a G*H Gift Certificate is even better than a buying a plant as a present. You have no worries about sun, shade and size requirements. You can also call the store, pay over the phone and for a $1 fee we will mail the gift certificate for you. Easy giving.
