Left it a bit late for father’s day? Don’t panic, here are our top gifts for the green-fingered dad

Tough Touch Gold Leaf gardening gloves, available from Gold Leaf Gloves Tough Touch Gold Leaf gardening gloves, available from Gold Leaf Gloves

As Father’s Day approaches, here’s a little inspiration for gifts to give your green-fingered dad. Whether he’s digging, pruning, weeding, watering or just sitting enjoying the garden, there are plenty of gifts out there for your green-fingered father. Here are some of the best:

Tough Touch Gold Leaf gardening gloves

Endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, Gold Leaf gloves are super-comfortable and super-durable leather in gauntlet-style to let you handle brambles, roses and other thorny plants without getting pricked. Made of gold grain leather, which has been treated to offer water-resistance, with a strong, soft cuff to protect the arms, they come in bright yellow at £26.99, so you won’t lose them either.

EGO Power Cordless hedge trimmer

This latest addition from EGO is quiet, smooth and really easy to use, slicing happily through hedging thanks to its dual knife edge laser-cut diamond ground blades. The 56-volt battery gives you around 50 minutes run-time and can be fully charged from nothing in just half an hour. The rotating rear handle allows you to adjust the trimmer for comfort, whilst the two-speed selector lets you adjust to match each task. RRP £219 excluding battery and charger.

Caledonian trough

If your dad has limited space, this wooden trough is great for creating extra growing areas to get vegetables or herbs going. The pressure-treated timber can be painted to compliment any garden colour scheme. It comes at £104.99 and is available nationwide from high street stores and garden centres.

Five Lose Dad in the Garden Centre

This fun, personalised gift, written and illustrated in the classic Enid Blyton style and featuring the original characters, is personalised for dad with his name and a message for £14.99.

Dragon fireball

Want to warm him up when the nights turn cold? This fiery feature will keep him outside long after the sun has gone down. Load it up with logs for an evening with friends. Rust-free and with a rain drain at £895 from Prezzy Box.

National Park stay

For dads who want to get away from it all, plump for a voucher to treat him to a luxurious night at a National Park location in the UK, from the Forest of Dean to Snowdonia from £89.99.

Novelty wooden sign

Whatever type of gardener he is, you will find a wooden hanging sign to suit him. Each is made of hardwood painted with external paint. Most signs are printed on one side, but some are double-sided. It’s £6 for one, £11 for two, £15.50 for three or £5 if you buy four or more at Gifts and Gardens.

Gardener’s nail brush

This is more than just a bog-standard nailbrush to remove soil and other debris from under your nails. It’s altogether more classy, made from oiled beechwood & Tampico fibre, a durable, porous fibre from the agave plant, and will show him how much you love him for just £12.95.

Hozelock Ultramax multi spray

This sturdy new addition from Hozelock, which has seven spray patterns, should prove invaluable during watering season. The solid zinc alloy body of each Ultramax spray gun is designed to withstand really rugged environments and has been tested in extreme conditions, should last longer than many of its competitors and comes with a five-year guarantee at RRP £35.

Stainless steel claw cultivator

For dads who like to get weeding and loosening soil for ground preparation, this new claw from Wilkinson Sword, made from rust-resistant polished stainless steel, is just the job. With a weatherproofed ash handle, it’s also ideal for aerating heavy soil and comes at just £9.99. Get it here.

Exfoliating shower gel

You might have thought that pampering after a hard day’s gardening was only directed towards the ladies, but men can also scrub up well with this new range of exfoliating shower gel for all. In three fragrances, Lime Basil & Mandarin, Pomegranate Noir and Geranium & Walnut, it should leave his skin delicately cleansed and scented for £30. Buy it here.
