My garden Christmas gift wish list

A greenhouse made from Legos.

Okay, I’ve posted what cool, fun & funky garden items I’ve wanted for the past two years, 2010 (the year of the Venus Flytrap Chair) and 2009 (top of list, a gingko mobile). I haven’t gotten a single item. I realize that I make the list too close to Christmas, usually the week before Christmas. This year, as a favor to you, I will be accepting Christmas gifts way in to March. I’m a realist, I know Lego greenhouses probably take some time to assemble.

Shovel birdhouses. Kills two birds with one…  oh well, never mind.
A Woody Rug.
A trellis chair.
A hose cactus.
The perfect outdoor sink.
Land shark
A wearable Hummingbird feeder. This is totally awesome.
Spade stool


Artificial turf, no-mow pillows. No pitchfork bench with ax handles would be complete without them.
A lawn chair. Whoever thought this up is a genius.
Custom photo pots. It comes with your own photos on them. For me, I’d have to find a curly gray plant to be accurate.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.
