Hampers for Garden Lovers

Here are a couple of gift ideas for garden lovers - send them a hamper!  Many hampers help gardeners soothe their hands after time in the garden, digging, weeding, planting, raking leaves, tidying... Some are to tuck into and enjoy after all that fresh air and outdoor activity.  But there are also one or two for those who love wildlife and would love to tempt more birds and bees into their gardens.   Here are a few gift ideas...
