Does your wife, mum, partner, grandma or nan love her garden?

If so, here at, we have lots of suggestions for great activities to do with the garden-loving lady in your life, this Mother’s Day.

Don’t forget… Mother’s Day is on Sunday 19th March in 2023



Activities to do with mums that love gardens and gardening


Visit a grand English garden

From the National Trust to English Heritage to the National Open Gardens Scheme, there are so many places local to you where you can enjoy a beautiful garden.

Mother’s Day is the perfect time of year to explore and enjoy spring flowers, including daffodils, primroses, hellebores and early tulips.

Treat your mum to a day out at a special garden or country home – with a must-have visit to the tea shop or tent, of course.


Explore your local garden centre

How about a trip with mum or gran to your local garden centre, this Mother's Day?

They are such a wonderful source of inspiration – not only for plants, bulbs and bushes, but also gifts, gourmet foods and gardening accessories can be found galore.

Treat your mum to something new for her own garden or balcony.

Ask her for advice about what you could be planting for April and May too.

Perhaps, you’re both in to ‘grow your own’ – take a look through the seeds available and plan your vegetable patch together.

Do some gardening together

If your mum loves to spend time in her own garden or allotment, why not make the special effort to join her.

Get down on your hand and knees and get involved with a bit of weeding and Spring tidying. See if you can help with any digging or re-potting.

Learn from mum about what needs preparing reading for an abundant summer.

Ask her questions about how to keep away those pesky diseases and garden pests, as well as how to encourage more wildlife, insects and those all-important bees. Here’s some top tips from Gardener’s World about how to make your garden more bee friendly

If you have young children, get them involved too with granny’s garden! It’s a wonderful way to teach them about how plants and vegetables grow. They can pot their own plants and sow some seeds – ready to discover how they have bloomed on their next visit.

Enjoy time in mum’s garden

After all of mum's hard work over the years to get her garden looking truly beautiful, treat her to a special gift that acknowledges her ‘green fingers’ and her passion for gardening.

Our Mother’s Day Garden Tea Break Hamper is utterly divine. The hamper includes the makings of a very special afternoon tea – with traditional English tea in a tin, a delicious almond-topped Dundee cake to share, and elegant baked apple and custard biscuits to dunk.

We can just see you sat there in the Spring sunshine, on comfortable garden chairs, enjoying this treat all together.

Let’s hope the British weather behaves itself this Mother’s Day!
