** Paperwhites in White Flower Farm's Exclusive Gift Box
Paperwhites are the easiest Daffodil bulbs to grow indoors in potting soil or just stones and water. The blooms' intoxicating scent will perfume a room, too. White Flower Farm packages 24 top-size bulbs in their reusable hardwood gift box, and their new jute bag filled with 12 bulbs also makes a welcome, do-it-yourself present. Prices from $20-$99.
** White Flower Farm Gift Certificate
Gardeners love new plants and happily spend months looking at catalogs and web sites to plan and decide on purchases for the coming season. That's why a White Flower Farm Gift Certificate is the perfect gift for gardeners on your list. You may not know their preferences, so let them select their own gifts from among the 1,000 annuals, perennials, bulbs, shrubs, vines and houseplants in the White Flower Farm catalog. Gift certificates are delivered with a copy of the latest catalog, and you'll save 10% on gift certificates of $50 or more. If you really procrastinate, a gift certificate can even be sent Christmas morning by email!
** Enjoy An Early Spring Indoors
Designed by White Flower Farm's head gardener, their exquisite Forced Bulb Gardens are colorful, dependable performers. Perfect for a sunny windowsill, the "Trio of Multiflowering Hyacinths" delivers multiple stems of fragrant pink, blue and white flowers. "Seaside Romance" features tulips, grape hyacinths and anemones in clear shades of yellow, white and blue. "Aurora Borealis" dazzles with a collection of tulips, multiflowering hyacinths and grape hyacinths in brilliant, electric colors. Prices from $59-$145.
** Tropical Gold® Pineapples from Hawaii (must order by 12/19/10)
Festive in its crown of leaves, the pineapple is a traditional symbol of hospitality.
White Flower Farm offers a sweet, low-acid variety that will make a memorable gift, arriving a mere four days after harvest in Hawaii. Tropical Gold is not only juicy and sweet and rich in vitamins A and C, but also has a core so tender it can be sliced and eaten. Sold as a set of two, $29.
** White Flower Farm Vest
New for the 2010 holiday season, this dark holly green Polartec vest keeps you toasty in the garden on a chilly day. It falls at hip length and has two silhouettes -- straight cut for men, more fitted for women, and features roomy armholes, a front zipper that extends through the tall collar, and vertical zip pockets at the waist to hold gloves or garden scissors. Warm without being bulky, the vest is available in small to XL sizes, with White Flower Farm embroidered in white. $79
