DIY Green Thumb Gardening Gift Basket

Welp, it’s officially spring and you know what that means!


I like to pretend I know what I’m doing when I’m walking around the Home Depot flower section. I gravitate towards the prettiest flowers, standing there, staring, searching for… I’m not really sure what… but I’m pretty good at pretending I understand the concept of gardening. Let’s just say I’ve been known to go to the gardening store more than a couple of times during the course of the season.

My boss, on the other hand, is a gardening pro. She often talks about her gardening victories and I sit and think, “Did I even water my flowers today?” Her birthday was coming up and I wanted to give her a garden a jump start with this Green Thumb Gardening Basket. I found the items at my local Home Goods store. The seeds I picked up during one of my trips to the grocery store.
