People are usually first drawn to Harlequin’s Gardens for our outstanding array of locally adapted plants sustainably cared for, and then discover our Garden Center Shop. For the Holiday Market we’ve selected some of our favorite garden gift ideas, such as durable and attractive garden gloves, beautiful bulbs, and our personal favorite (and always the right size!) Harlequin’s Gift Certificates.
We’ve been growing houseplants to brighten your indoor spaces all winter long! Among our great selection of healthy houseplants large and small you’ll find old favorites as well as very cool specialty plants.
And to personalize your gift, we have the perfect pots for every room.
Botanical Interests goes to great lengths to provide all the information you need, and more (like an illustration of what the seedling looks like when it emerges), on both the outside and the inside of the packet, plus stunning, botanically accurate illustrations by highly skilled local artists adorning the front of each packet! We have carefully selected varieties from their catalog that will thrive in Colorado’s short season, early heat, cool nights, etc.
Enjoy them in your own garden and share them with a friend.
Zink Metal Art is the collaborative effort of Charlotte and Ben Zink, who have made their whimsical and flowing designs of metal for home and garden for the past 20+ years in Berthoud, CO.
Their steel garden sculptures are graceful, original, very easy to install, and affordable, and similar designs are available as smaller garden ornaments, indoor wall-pieces and as holiday tree ornaments. All make great gifts!
Joe Wirtheim, a gifted young artist and designer in Portland, OR, is inspired to: “ignite America’s progressive streak by making work that builds confidence and excitement in a healthy, connected future. Since 2008 I have been making posters and other neat stuff to inspire better gardens, better food and better cities. I love what I do: think, draw, make and do. It’s my passion to communicate graphically and put creative ideas into action that drives me. I use illustration, type, color and layout to excite the viewer’s imagination. I turn these graphic ideas into quality goods, which, I’m proud to say, are made here in the USA.”
Joe’s beautiful designs, in the form of front yard signs and patches will help spread positive messages about actions we can all take to collaborate with nature so that we can improve our future!
Plants are, of course, the main thing every gardener wants in their garden. But to garden, one also needs some tools, and the quality of those tools makes a BIG difference in the comfort, ease, and speed of getting those garden chores done. Durability, reliability, precision, and ergonomic design don’t generally come cheap. A quality handsaw or pole-saw, a pair of pruning shears, loppers or hedge-trimmers will, with a little maintenance, last a lifetime.
We love our hori-hori knives, and we have our favorite, nearly indestructible trowels for you this year.
Did someone you love just plant a home orchard? A berry patch? A new landscape? They’re going to need some good tools, and we’ve got them!
This very small, extremely high quality 12x power magnifier is great for getting a closer look at what’s bugging your plants, taking out splinters, or helping to identify flowers.
We also offer other affordable, high-quality magnification tools, such as Binoculars!

Reviewed by former HG staffer Deb:
“This is the best all-around tool ever! Whenever I go out into the garden with no particular task in mind (other than peace of mind putzing) I grab this tool. It can dig, saw into fat roots, slice into bindweed roots with the pointed tip, it’s wonderful. I have a sheath for it which slides nicely onto a regular belt or garden-tool belt. I love using it for planting bulbs as I can make a deep, small hole. If I could only have one tool forever, I would choose this one.”
The Stella Natura Wall Calendar is an easy-to-use, informative and beautiful planting and gardening calendar that shows the best times to take advantage of the cosmic influences of the moon, sun and planets. This is a research-based system that is used by Biodynamic farmers and gardeners.
We have been using this calendar for over 25 years and believe it has helped with germination of seeds, root development of cuttings, and healthy plant development. More than just a calendar – it’s packed with valuable information and insights for successful growing, from seed to harvest!
We love West County gloves! They are made from recycled plastic bottles, are very durable and stand-up to several seasons of tough gardening. They are machine washable and retain their shape, and they come in great colors and patterns! We carry their Work Glove, Rose Gauntlet, Mud Glove and Grip Glove, all in a range of sizes.
If you give these gloves as a gift, be assured that the recipient is welcome to exchange them for a different in-stock size, as long as they are still unused and in their original packaging.
