Haskins Garden Centres (www.haskins.co.uk) have some great gift ideas for those wanting to treat their mums to something that will last longer than cut flowers.
Haskins offer a variety of plants located in their centres in Ferndown in Dorset, West End in Southampton and Roundstone and Snowhill in West Sussex.
These include perennially popular and exotic orchids (from £9.99), peace lilies (from £4.99) which are a great choice for teens wanting to make a peace offering and Mother-in-Law’s Tongue (£10.99); an easy-care house plant with near indestructible qualities – so perfect for those less-than-green-fingered mums.
For style-conscious mums, Haskins stocks a choice of national fashion labels, including Hunter, White Stuff, Weird Fish and Joules. The Joules’ Wensley Scarf (£19.95) features a hand-drawn floral print design in two colours – navy rose and cream rose. Most importantly for mums, this lightweight scarf is machine-washable.
While for those wanting to give their mum a heavenly floral fragrance without the need for a vase of water, Haskins offers a vast selection of scented candles from Yankee Candle. The brand’s classic range is available from £18.99 and fragrances include peony, verbena, fresh cut roses, lavender and garden sweet pea.
Lisa Looker, brand director for Haskins Garden Centres, said: “At Haskins we like to offer gifting options which go beyond the usual flowers and chocolates. In addition to offering a wide array of beautiful plants for the house and garden, our centres have vast gifting sections and stock more than 40 well-known national brands, so there really is something here for every mum.”
