POPULAR MOTHER'S DAY GIFT IDEAS FROM WHITE FLOWER FARM
It's not always easy to surprise Mom on her special day with a gift that is both interesting and thoughtful. Whether the gardening moms - mothers, mothers-in-law, daughters, and grandmothers - in your life are avid gardeners, or just enjoy cut flowers, White Flower Farm (www.whiteflowerfarm.com) has suggestions for a perfect-fit Mother's Day present.
** Perfumed Garden Lily Bouquet with Vase - Freshly cut and long-lasting oriental lilies will make a richly fragrant, lush display. This pretty bouquet is a mix of pinks and other soft spring colors. Available with a vase for $69; without a vase, $59.
** Moms who love fragrance will appreciate receiving The Perfumed Garden Lily Bouquet with vase and a dozen lily bulbs for spring planting. The bulbs will grow to 5 feet tall and flower gloriously in late summer, filling the vase again. $79
** Herbs on the Windowsill -- Perfect for the cook, these undemanding plants require only a south-facing window and some care in watering. Five herbs in 3 1/2-inch nursery pots set in a window box measuring 18 inches long, 5 inches wide, and 7 inches tall. $79
** Streptocarpella 'Concord Blue' -- Dainty, purplish blue flowers float above downy leaves on this easy-care, African Violet relative. 'Concord Blue' blooms almost continuously on a bright windowsill. Set outside in a lightly shaded area for the summer, it will be a treat for hummingbirds. Sent in a 6-inch, stained Nantucket basket. $29
** Tomato and Herb Collection in a Caribbean Pot - A tomato and herb collection with everything moms need to add fresh flavor to favorite recipes, plus a 20-inch pot to grow the plants in. New this year and priced at $59.
** Woven Palm Hat -- Made from environmentally friendly palm leaves that are hand woven and machine stitched, this stylish hat is pliable, durable, and lightweight. The 4-inch-wide brim gives maximum sun protection. Adjust the fit with a wooden bead on the leather chinstraps, and the hat will remain snug even on a windswept beach. One size. $36
** Eucalyptus/Lavender Sachets by the Yard -- Fresh California-grown Lavender flowers and Eucalyptus leaves fill lilac organza in a yard-long series of sachets. They can be hung together or cut apart to discourage moths from a bureau or closet. Eight sachets tied with a ribbon, $25.
But perhaps the most popular gift of all is a White Flower Farm gift certificate, which allows moms to select exactly the right plant, tool or garden ornament. Ordering a gift certificate online is quick and easy, and the recipient can receive an immediate E-mail announcement. White Flower Farm will follow up with conventional delivery of the certificate along with a current catalog. Standard shipping of gift certificates is free, and just until Mother's Day, there's a 20% discount on gift certificates with a value of $50 or more. This offers expires at 5pm on May 10th EST.
New this year - Combine a $50 gift certificate with The Perfumed Garden Lily Bouquet for $99, or send The Perfumed Garden Lily Bouquet with vase and $50 gift certificate for $109. Both offers reflect a savings of $10.
