Spring has sprung at the Stillwater Farm Store.
Spring is here, and it’s the perfect time to help gardens bloom. From seeds to décor, there are endless options for gifting loved ones with the spirit of the season. We asked two local store owners—Rebecca Kolls of the Stillwater Farm Store and Alecia Enger of My Sister’s Garden in Hudson—for gifts fit for gardeners.
A store favorite. Enger recommends the jumbo six-pack of mixed specialty annuals that are fitted in a beautiful container to create special spots within a garden. $11.99, My Sister’s Garden
“We hand-blend our own bird feed,” Kolls says. “It’s a great gift for someone moving into a new home.” Prices vary, Stillwater Farm Store
Want to spread springtime, but don’t know anyone with a garden? Fresh-cut flowers are “a simple way to give something colorful and beautiful. It’s a gift everyone appreciates,” Enger says. $5, My Sister’s Garden
Tomatoes and basil are great starter options for anyone dipping their toes into gardening. My Sister’s Garden offers more than 80 varieties in an array of colors. $3.99 for a 5-inch pot transplant, My Sister’s Garden
EGG-CARTON SEED STARTER KIT
Kits come with different seeds that fit a variety of themes. From butterfly garden to cocktail kits, there’s something for all sizes of green thumb. $13, Stillwater Farm Store
GLASS BIRD BATH
“Keeping birds around is part of the fun of a garden,” says Kolls, who suggests the decorative structures as a great way to attract butterflies and monarchs, too. $70–$75, Stillwater Farm Store
A colorful garden attracts bees—and that’s a good thing. The natural pollinators allow a variety of plants to blossom. $22, Stillwater Farm Store
CORINTHIAN BELLS WIND CHIME
A favorite of music lovers, each wind chime one produces a specific harmony with perfect pitch. $60–$120, Stillwater Farm Store.
This copper item collects rainwater to create a stream in special patterns. “They’re beautiful to look at and sound lovely,” Kolls says. $140, Stillwater Farm Store
From whimsical to classic, accessorizing with unique items adds height and color to a garden. Prices vary, My Sister’s Garden
