Love isn’t fleeting, so Give Everlasting Gifts this Valentine’s Day
Say “I Love You” with unique gift ideas from the garden gurus at Garden Media Group
Anyone can give chocolate on Valentine's Day. But if you love a gardener or someone who appreciates a "greener" gift, think outside the chocolate box with gifts that say "I love you" long after the day is over. Something every Valentine wants to hear. Here are 12 ideas to take it to the next level:
1. Mother Nature Says I <3 You
The hoya heart ($24.50) is perfect for your plant parent-loving valentines. Even beginners will be successful with this easy-to-grow plant. It comes in a charming, white ceramic pot adorned with a "Love Balloon," perfect for home or the office. Let your loved ones know your love grows every day.
2. For Red Rose Lovers
Forget long stems; the roses on Petite Knock Out® ($34.75 or local retailers), the first-ever miniature Knock Out® Rose will last for years. With the same flower power and easy care as others in The Knock Out® Family, Petite comes in an adorable, compact size with smaller blooms.
3. For the Girl That Buys Herself Flowers
The new OASIS® Forage Create kit ($39.99) is perfect for your creative Valentine or Galentine. Help her explore her artistic flair, elevate indoor arrangements, and bring her vision to life. This kit provides all the essentials for assembling a captivating design of foraged materials. Add a botanical forage messenger bag ($19.99) for carrying her tools and found materials.
4. Love Blooms
Appropriately named Allura ($29.99), this lipstick-red anthurium bears heart-shaped flowers. Mother Nature is romantic, isn't she? Potted in a decorative heart pot, the flowers last for weeks and brighten any spot in the house. Move to a shady spot outdoors when the weather warms.
5. Spread Love Like Wildflowers
For nature enthusiasts and pollinator lovers, give wildflowers and watch love flutter from bloom to bloom. Our favorite varieties attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds: Monarch Butterfly Wildflower Mix ($6.95), Hummingbird Wildflower Mix ($6.95), and Bee Buddies Mix ($7.95).
6. Blooms of Love all Season Long
Just one look, and you'll be head over heels for the new Mysterious Floribunda Rose ($49.95), perfect for containers. Its continuous blooming from late spring to fall, with deep red petals framed by a cream-colored center, offers a tribute to enduring passion. The mild fragrance adds a subtle charm, and the blooms, perfect for cutting, add a little mystery to your love life with one snip.
7. A Pop of Forever Love
Unlike anything you've ever seen, Rosepops™ Fourget Me Not ($84.95) makes your Valentine feel unique. Meticulously selected at the peak of their beauty, these roses are naturally preserved for lasting elegance. Each of the four pristine roses has been organically treated to stay "alive," robust, and maintenance-free for a year plus. The flowers never fade, like your love. Gift the magic.
8. Flower Bulbs Make You Bloom!
Give potted flower bulbs (prices vary) to your loved ones. Choose one with plenty of unopened buds so they'll bloom for weeks. After they've finished blooming, keep watering until the foliage dies back. Plant them in a sunny spot as soon as the weather warms, and they'll bloom again next spring.

11. Light a Fire in Their Heart with Autumn Fire!
