It’s surprising how many dwarf fruit tree varieties are available at your local gardening expert.  Depending on your climatic zone in Australia, you can pot lemons, figs, apples, mulberry and limes.

We all know how important it is to cover up when working outside, and of course, garden enthusiasts require additional ‘resources’, such as gumboots and garden gloves, to get the job done. Some fabulous options are available when you visit your local gardening outlet.

3. Harvest Basket

A basket or bucket is handy when you are out in the garden picking flowers or harvesting produce. Look for a nice big handle that’s well made. The last thing mum will want is her much-loved peaches bruised on the floor!

4. Living Colour

Flowers and Mother’s Day go hand-in-hand, but rather than purchasing a bouquet from the florist, why not purchase her a living bouquet that will last for weeks……. Best of all, she might get a flower display more than once!
