Perhaps some of you already consider this old hat, but it was a first at Lockwood’s in Buffalo when I scribbled down a list of plants that my friend Ron might like for his garden—and as wedding gifts.
I was as surprised as he was when the Endless Summer shrubs and fancy heucheras started to appear at his shower. What great gift ideas! And what a way to further energize the garden center business, by gifting merging couples of whatever gender with plants to start their lives together.
Does your local garden center have a registry? If not, now would be a good time to encourage them.
This is the first gift registry Lockwood’s has ever had, but I am sure it will not be the last.Posted by Elizabeth Licata on June 15, 2008 at 5:00 am, in the category Shut Up and Dig.
