The Top 5 Gardening Gifts Christmas 2022

During one of the busiest times of the year, we hope to be helpful with these top 5 gardening gifts (Christmas 2022). For most, the holidays can be hectic, and what is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year can be stressful - especially shopping for gifts. Most folks want to give (and receive) a gift that will be useful and not collect dust up on a shelf. If you have a gardener in your life you need to shop for, we're here to help!

The Top Gardening Gift Ideas this Christmas 2022

Fertilizer for Plants

Starter Fertilizer is one of our top gardening gift ideas and here is why. One of the best things about gardeners is that each gardener is unique. Every plant lover has a favorite plant, a favorite gardening tool and a unique way of gardening. However, there is one thing almost all gardeners have in common - the need for fertilizer. Why does every gardener need fertilizer? Every gardener could use some fertilizer because all plants need a unique combination of minerals and nutrients throughout their growth. For example, a freshly planted garden or plant needs a specific proportion of nutrients and minerals for help with rooting. Once plants are established, you can switch to lawn food. Lawn food fertilizer has a different proportion of nutrients and minerals for help with maintaining a plant. So, to get your favorite gardener the best Christmas gift, you don't need to do the crazy detective work or spend a ton of money when Christmas shopping. Fertilizer is a safe bet for a gardener, whether it's starter fertilizer or lawn food. Fertilizer will always come in handy.

Lippia Phyla Nodiflora Ground Cover

Lippia, or Phyla Nodiflora, is a native plant. As mentioned earlier, gardeners have endless niches and possibilities in their garden. Often, a good gardener will look for a native plant to restore in support of native plant restoration. This is where our Lippia or Phyla Nodiflora plugs come in. One of the top 5 gardening gifts this Christmas for your plant lover is Native Lippia plugs! Due to their seasonal flowering, the Native Lippia can be a decorative plant or it can be used as a ground cover - let the gardener decide! Every day is a good day to support native plant restoration. 

Frog Fruit Ground Cover

If you are new to the Lippia or Phyla Nodiflora, we'll start by clarifying that Frog Fruit is Lippia, and Lippia is Phyla Nodiflora. This charming native plant has many names! Our Frog Fruit plugs are a top gardening gift this Christmas. 

Turkey Tangle Ground Cover

Did we mention that Turkey Tangle is the same as Frog Fruit? If you're wondering why we have different names and pages for the same plant, the answer is simple: we wanted to cover all our bases considering the plant has so many names. Initially, we only had Phyla on our online store and we'd get calls every day from customers asking if we sold Frog Fruit or Turkey Tangle. Now, everyone can find this special native plant regardless of what they call it. 

One thing to note about the Turkey Tangle Frog Fruit is that growth in the winter is slow, but this doesn't have to stop you or your favorite gardener! The Lippia Phyla Nodiflora or Turkey Tangle Frog Fruit can survive winter conditions, including a single digit frost. However, it does love full sun so winter conditions the Lippia is exposed to should not be prolonged if extreme (such as regular single digit winter climate). As soon as temperatures start rising and the sun starts shining stronger, the Native Lippia's growth will take off and it'll fill in it's intended area in no time. 

Kurapia Ground Cover

Kurapia is a hybrid plant made from the Native Lippia and another top Christmas gift for the gardener in your life. It has been modified to enhance certain characteristics. We offer Kurapia in sod roll form only, and similar to our native Lippia, we are sure to cover as many name bases as we can offering Kurapia sod, Kurapia turf, Kurapia grass, etc. All options are one in the same. One huge benefit of Kurapia is that because we only offer it in sod roll form, you'll have an instant cover for your lawn. One of the biggest benefits of the native Lippia and Kurapia is their resistance to weeds. So, an instant Kurapia cover for your lawn will make those weeds stand little chance to pop up unwanted. 

Grass Seed

Grass seed is the fourth gift on our top gardener gifts for Christmas 2022. Grass seed is a top gift for two reasons. One, grass seed can be used as a filler. Other plants can be planted on top of grass or besides grass, and it can also be used as a filler for any bare areas. Secondly, grass seed is often an annual purchase for overseeding. Most grass seed has a relatively long shelf life so the grass seed can last long. Grass seed is the top gift that keeps on giving!


Fifth on the top 5 gifts for Christmas 2022 is sod! Sod is a top gift for Christmas 2022 because like fertilizer, sod is a gift that keeps on giving. In nearly every scenario, sod is a top gift. If your plant lover has little ones, sod is the perfect gift for them to play and explore. If your plant lover is social, sod is a nice way to provide space that is multi-use and can host many social events! Maybe, your plant lover just wants a natural space to unwind. A sod lawn can also serve as a neutral space to relax in between gardening sessions and maybe even take a cat nap or have a snack.
