It’s nearly Father’s day, but what do you give to green-fingered Dads when the rain is pouring outside, and going out in a downpour is the last thing anyone wants to think about, let alone potting out the runner beans or doing a spot of weeding?
To help you with a few ideas, we have put together a list of 12 great Father’s day gifts, all available at the Woodworks Garden Centre and Café, and to suit a range of budgets.
Here are our suggestions:
1. Garden Shed
If you fancy splashing out, why not buy Dad a new shed. At the Woodworks Garden Centre, we’ve got sheds of different sizes and to suit a variety of budgets, so you’re sure to find just the right den for Dad. No doubt he’ll find the storage useful and enjoy refuge from the rain drops whilst he gets on with potting up his seedlings. We can deliver locally.
2. Economy Potting Table
Talking of potting up seedlings, we can help Dad with that too. Our Zest 4 Leisure Economy Potting Table should probably be called ‘Quality Potting Table’, but the key point is that this potting table is great value for money, and a handy addition to any gardeners’ work space. It’s got a handy shelf for Dad to stand his watering can, pots, seeds and tools on, and the potting surface is edged to ensure the compost doesn’t fall off the sides.
A gardener always needs a good pair of wellies, and even more so after weather like we’ve had for the last week. The soil will be wet and claggy, the grass damp, and there may be a few puddles. At the garden centre, we have an excellent range of quality wellies, all you have to do is select the right size.
4. Woodworks Garden Centre Gift Vouchers
If you’d prefer your Dad to select his own gift, why not treat him to a set of our Woodworks Garden Centre Gift vouchers? He can spend the vouchers on plants, sundries, garden furniture, and any other item stocked. He can also use them in our Café.
5. A Lovely Obelisk
We sell a range of quality Zest 4 Leisure obelisks – attractive garden features in their own right, they will offer sturdy support and show off climbing plants and beans beautifully, adding height and interest to the garden border or vegetable patch. You’re bound to find the perfect one for Dad.
6. Lily Relax Furniture
It won’t be raining forever – promise! But whilst we can’t rely on the British summer weather, we think we can rely on our furniture to provide the perfect seating your Dad will enjoy relaxing on. Our beautiful range of Zest 4 Leisure Lily Relax furniture is stylish and comfortable, with loungers, seat, rocking chair and 2 seater bench available.
7. Sunday Lunch
If you’d like to take Dad for a scrumptious Sunday lunch, call the Woodworks Garden Centre café and book your table now to avoid disappointment. The café uses a range of locally sourced ingredients, and our mouth-watering, Yorkshire puddings and gravy are not to be missed. To book your table, phone: 01352 752 555 – Option 3.
8. Shears And Pruners
A sharp pair of shears or pruners really helps to make light work of hedge cutting, fruit, shrub and tree pruning – this is especially important for anyone who has arthritis or joint problems, and a real help for any gardener who takes pride in a perfectly pruned plant. At the Woodworks Garden Centre, we have a wide range of quality Fiskars garden pruners and shears, so you’re bound to find the perfect item for Dad in our great selection.
9. Stylish Timber Planters And Raised Beds
We have an excellent range of timber planters (like the Marford planter pictured) and raised beds in a variety of shapes and heights, which can be filled with flowers, shrubs or vegetables. All Dad needs to do is decide what to put in them and where to site this stylish new addition to his garden.
10. Woodworks Garden Centre Gift Range
In the Woodworks Garden Centre gift shop, we have a superb range of gifts – something to suit every budget, and a variety of interests; including pens, books, and beautifully packaged gift sets, such as this Gentleman’s Hardware branded wooden toolbox kit. Come along and see for yourself.
11. Seeds and Plants
You might be surprised at the quality and range of plants, shrubs and trees we stock at our garden centre, many from UK growers. If you pop in to our Garden Emporium, you’ll also find a good selection of seeds, whether your Dad likes to cultivate his own flowering plants, or grow his own fruit and veg.
12. Dad’s Sunday Breakfast Or Brunch
We have a mouth-watering breakfast/brunch menu, which includes a delicious, traditional full-cooked breakfast with eggs and bacon, smoked salmon and eggs benedict. Take a look here – remember to book at the café to avoid disappointment – phone: 01352 752 555 – Option 3.
