Best Tote for Gardeners

Christmas Gifts for Gardeners .

Go Caddy

The hands free Go Caddy™ is a compact tote that has enough compartments to hold all the necessities by your side for hands free traveling, hiking, daytrips and garden tours.

The black nylon unisex tote will hold a typical sized water bottle with a cooler sleeve. (included) A cruise ship pass fits in the front pocket and closes with a flapped Velcro closure. There is room for a charge card, cash, license or identification, cell phone, camera, a pen and little note book.

You know I only recommend things that I have used. The Go Caddy, minus the water, went with me every day for two months while traveling and shooting garden photos. I carried a passport instead of a cruise ship pass, but everything else on the above list went with me every where. (Plus my business cards, lipstick and comb.)

That’s a heck of a lot for a 4 1/2” wide x 10” tall tote. Go Caddy™ folds flat in my suitcase. (where I always keep it between trips.) $19.99

Buy yours on line BVT Products or use the store locator on their web site.

Getta Gator Grabber

Christmas Gifts for Gardeners

Gator Grabber
is a back-saving tool that is useful well beyond fall leaf cleanup. After I tried it, I asked the neighbor to give it a try. We both agreed that using Gator Grabber was handy and timesaving.

Picking up pine cones is easier with a grabber

If you have balance problems or just don’t want to bend over 150 times to pick up all the pinecones in your yard, consider the Gator Grabber. I also use it to pick up a gazillion black walnuts.

Buy these ergonomic grip garden tools online or use the store locator to find a retailer. Gator Grabber is made by the folks that make the tools with Large “O”-shaped handles in “can’t-lose-in-the-garden” green

I have the Radius Trowel with that comfortable curve providing more leverage with less wrist stress. These aluminum blade tools are both light weight and very sturdy. I’ve been using this trowel for two years. It’s the kind of tool a gardener only has to buy once. Well, maybe twice, if you have a tool borrowing spouse.

Herbaria All Natural Soap

A Christmas Gift for Gardeners

Herbaria All Natural Soap for gardeners contains cornmeal to gently scrub hands clean. The delightful citrus scent comes from essential oils of orange, lemongrass and palmarosa. I like that this pure product is not harsh or dry out my hands.

I keep this at the garden sink, it works beautifully to clean the garden grime from my hands. Plus, the soaps make great sachets in dresser drawers and linen closets, cars.

If you are in St Louis, on the Hill, stop by Herbaria. (The owner has designed some hand made soap dishes.) It is tempting to buy so many different beautiful, mildly fragrant bars of soap. But the good news, if you buy a  basket full of soap, they make nice stocking stuffers, or holiday hostess gifts.

Fragrant and long lasting


Price: 4.5 ounce bar, $5.95 each

More good news: Herbaria is a sustainable products with no milk soaps or honey soaps. All Herbaria soaps contain only food-grade vegetable oils and sustainable plant materials. The soaps are never tested on animals. They really do test the soaps on their selves.

Plant Cam

Christmas Gifts for Gardeners

Plant Cam the website shows plant cam, bird cam and project cam. I received a free Plant Cam from the makers so that I can evaluate it and write about my experience. I’m staking out Plant Cam to several locations so I can literally see the daffodils and tulips bloom from beginning to end this spring.
