Local stores offer unique gifts for any gardener on your list

Every year I take a tour of local nurseries to see what’s out there in the way of interesting items for gardeners. I always spend a lot more than this article nets me, but it’s fun — and this year I scored a beautiful white ceramic gnome lamp, which I wouldn’t have found on Amazon but is right up my alley. I also found a few gifts, and it feels virtuous supporting local merchants. Many of us spend way too much time on our computers when getting out and walking into stores would be better for us physically and emotionally. (Diane Lynch photos / For The Ark)
