Looking for gift ideas for the gardeners on your list? Beaux Arbres will be bringing hand-made baskets and packets of wildflower seed to the West Carlton Arts Society $100 and Under Christmas Sale on December 1, 2, and 3. Okay, this is a small sale of mostly fine art, but it is right beside the large and popular Carp Christmas Market (in the Carp Fair Grounds, December 1 & 2). If you are planning your holiday shopping, looking for quality local crafts and foods, come to both events. This will be last fair at which Beaux Arbres will be a vendor this season.
I have packaged up a good selection of our wildflower and native grass seeds and we will have the 2017 version of our popular Wildflower Meadow Starter Kit available. Our 2016 version sold out last Christmas. I guess others shared our opinion that this is just the thing for a stocking stuffer: 5 seed packets and instructions. All the species are genuinely native to the Ottawa Valley with locally-sourced Little Bluestem Grass as the backbone of your meadow.
New this season: Beaux Arbres Gift Certificates. There is nothing a dedicated gardener wants more than actual garden plants. Our gift certificates are redeemable for plants, seeds, or our garden consultation services, at the farm or at the spring sales in Ottawa (Rare and Unusual in May, and Fletcher Wildlife Garden in June).
Michael’s rustic hand-made baskets feature local materials such as grapevine, red osier, and found wood. They make great gifts. Hint: Fill one with wildflower seed packets!
