4. Heather Raeburn Tea Towels – 2 for £8

…perhaps you could even keep one of the two for yourself? Your alpine enthusiast need never know…!

5. Alpine Garden Society Membership – £36

If your loved one is a real plant enthusiast, you might want to consider buying them Alpine Garden Society membership or membership of another plant society.

This gives them the chance to learn about plants from our botanists, expert growers and flower show exhibitors – through virtual and in-person events, our quarterly print journal, The Alpine Gardener, and members-only content.
