If you have a gardening obsessive in your life, then you'll know just how much they appreciate anything related to their hobby. They're always looking for new flowers to grow, or a shiny new gardenaccessory to keep them busy for a while. Plus, with spring coming up, there's lots of preparation needed to make the garden ready for action.

Having said that, if you don't happen to share their passion for pruning shrubs and trimming weeds, it might be tricky to know just what you're looking for. Do you get them a new plant pot or a book on the art of botany? It's not an easy decision to make, but that's where we come in.

Whether you're shopping for a partner, parent or close friend, we've done some digging and found the very best gifts for gardeners. Shop our top picks below.
