It's Mothering Sunday soon21 March 2014
It's Mothering Sunday soon and garden centres have of treats in store for you and your mum to have a really special day! Make the garden centre your venue for a slap-up lunch their cafe, chosen from our special Mother's Day menu, or a mouthwatering afternoon tea with some of their home-made cakes to try.
Then take her shopping - or pop in a few days ahead of time to surprise her with a gift you've chosen yourself. Here are a few ideas:
Daffodil basket: choose three different varieties of daffodil selected from our potted ready-flowering bulbs and one wicker display basket, then plant the basket up and top with a little moss.
Bouquet of flowers: pick her favourites and have a bouquet made for you. In 'flower language' crocuses mean cheerfulness, zinnias show lasting affection and a dark pink rose says thank you.
Seeds for the garden: start her gardening year in style with a generous selection of her favourite seeds from seed racks, boxed up in a lovely decorative seed storage boxes.
Gift vouchers: for the mum who has everything (or just very firm ideas about what she likes!) great-value gift vouchers let her choose the perfect gift for herself.
