Gift Guide: For the Urban Gardener

November 22, 2013

For the urban gardener, space is limited and a need to maintain a certain degree of urbane sophistication may also be a consideration. Here’s our roundup of gifts for the discerning urban gardener.

Above: Concrete and Steel Garden Tools; $45 each at Light and Ladder. When we visited Red Pig Tools this summer, Bob told us all about an upcoming collaboration with folks in Brooklyn. Little did we know the collaboration would include our friends Farrah Sit, Taylor of Fox Fodder Farms, and Native Cast. 

Above: The Urban Farm Seed Collection, $34 from Clyde Oak, includes vegetable seeds selected with small spaces in mind. Bonus point? The seeds are non-hybrid, non-GMO, open pollinating, and grown in the US. Let the seed saving begin!

Above: It doesn’t get more urban than potting soil mixed and made from organic materials right in Brooklyn. This 2 Lb. Bag of Brooklyn Blend Potting Soil includes bark ash, peat moss, and dolomitic limestone; in other words, your terrarium will thank you; $7 from West Elm.

Above: Get your guerrilla gardening on with a collection of Seed Bombs; $7.90 from Kaufmann Mercantile.

Above: And for launching those seed bombs? We’re pretty sure you’re going to need a Slingshot; $27.95 from Kaufmann Mercantile.

Above: For the urban gardener who’s just getting started, an Edible Flower Heirloom Seed Kit; $45 from Sarah Rainwater.
