Sarah's Christmas Top 10 Gifts & Decorations
1. Sarah Raven Calendar - £9.95, or 3 for £19.90
A brilliant present to enjoy throughout 2013, with my favourite pictures taken throughout the year in the garden at Perch Hill, as well as recipes and important gardening jobs.
2. Amaryllis 'Royal Velvet' - £12.95
Gift-packed in our hessian sack and tied with ribbon, when this comes into bloom it’s a complete showstopper in the deepest, darkest red, so will make an excellent and surprising present.
3. Highly Scented Sweet Pea Seed Collection - £9.95
A lovely gift tin containing one packet each of four of my favourite, old fashioned and beautifully scented sweet peas. Full growing instructions are included.
4. Herb Scissors - £8.50
I use these practically every day in my kitchen as they make short, efficient work of chopping herbs all year round. A great present for any foodie.
5. Heart Shaped Feeder - £11.95
At Christmas I put a small oasis ball on its spike (meant for an apple or a fat ball) and cover it with mistletoe or holly to hang on the door or over the fireplace.
6. Rectangular Ink Bottle Vases - £5.95
These little vases make brilliant stocking presents and look equally good left empty as with single stems displayed in them.
7. Bags of Rustic Baubles - £17.95 for 12
I use these all over the house, they’re so versatile. Not just for hanging on the tree; you can put them in the bottom of a glass vase, hang them in clusters or wire them into one of our wreaths.
8. Lemon Squeezer - £11.50
A super-effective juicer that I honestly use the whole time. It has a simple, squeeze-together action and has perforations to keep the pips in while allowing the juice to flow through.
9. Venetian Dahlia Collection - £31.50 for 8 tubers, £59.95 for 16 tubers
Dahlias are a brilliant addition to any garden as if you keep picking them, they will flower from July to the end of October. This is our bestselling collection of eight wonderful varieties.
10. Give a Rhubarb Bed - £13.50
Rhubarb is one of the long-lived of any edible plant and gives you home grown cordials and puddings from March until August. Sent out in our hessian sack, it will make a great present for anyone who loves to grow their own.
