I need to buy a fabulous birthday gift for my co-worker and she hinted to me today that she's really into her garden lately. Problem is, I've never seen her garden, so buying actual tress and such wouldn't be a good idea.

Any ideas for something really cool in the $100.00 range? Like a really neat tool or something?

Thanks I'm desperate!

But if it's raised bed a tool might not work either. What about a gift certificate at one of the nicer nurseries in the area?

Yep, I would have said a gift certificate too...

What type of gardener would you say she was???

Expert, Pretty Good, Medium, Beginner.....
Does she like to experiment, does she need tools?

I can send you some http://www.coms' to go that are
depending on her type..

Well I'd say shes pretty good...not expert though. The gift certificate is probably what we'll be leaning towards.
I'd love those website ideas so I can get her an online certificate. Thanks!!

I'll scatch them up in a bit...
I had a heck of a weekend...
and am just now sitting back down to
the ole puter...

Here's some to get you started..
*I love this one, it has some neat ideas,
especially the rooting cups, that you'd put
like say on a tree, in the spring time to
make more trees....*
Lee Valley Tools

Here\'s the probagating pot...

Here's on of my favorite books, some nice gardening packages' too, like 8~10 items for a certain $dollar$ figure..

Has some good tools in this one too..

I don't have one Rue,
but I know the concept works....
and I really believe that pot would work..

I had posted somewhere's here, about
how I found out about the concept of doing
that when I was still very~very young shocked
I was moving an Angel Winged Begonia, big,
beautiful plant I had...and snapped the tallest
stem.. eek grinnnn but thennnnnnnn I come acrossed those and I guess some one beat me
to the patient office, I guess...
