My 2019 Christmas garden wish list

It's more of an excuse to daydream about better weather.

Throughout the year I collect photos (and links when I can) of things I think would be great in a garden. They’re more things that catch my fancy, not things I absolutely have to have. It’s nice to daydream.

But just in case, there’s still time to order any of these and have them delivered to my house for Christmas.

Here are past wish lists. I haven’t gotten any of these things either, so you can pile these on, it’s a cumulative rolling Christmas wish list…

hose
I want this – but not this leopard-print pattern. I think it would be way cooler if it was the pattern of snake skin. Found on Pinterest. I couldn’t find where it’s actually sold.
Crakle-by-Baxter
Crakle Bench. It looks too cool to not want. Find it here.
SkyPots-kickstarter-featured-rev2
The Horticult Skypots. I can make a wall of these.
41iuSuyUjGL_1024x1024@2x
Alessi Diva Watering Can. I’d probably have to dress nicer when watering. Find it here.
41k6ZvfsavL
I need a garden unicorn. It might look good in my Harry Potter Garden. Find it here.

A Psychedelic Salad Kit just sounds like a way to kick up a salad a bit. Find it here.
71YbGBYPqkL._SL1000_
For a while these were showing up on my Facebook feed. Then they disappeared for a while. They look like flames. Find them here.
81pFVyZBY2L._SL1500_
Colorful solar garden chickens. Who couldn’t use some of these. I’ll take one in each color please. Find them here.
61fh8nieql._sl1000_.jpg
I’ve been nervous about owning an air plant because I’m not sure I have the right environment for them. But this sculptural “holder” could make me change my mind. Find it here.
619zi8keehl._sl1000_.jpg
I’ve been looking for solar lights to hang in one tree. Here’s a great idea (Get it? Light bulb, idea?). I envision selfies under one of these. Find them here.
61vbZwQeVlL._SL1000_
Adorbs! Succy tea lights! Find them here.

 

plant-gifts-update-3
An Unidentified Flowering Object and little green invaders. The 13 year-old boy in me wants this really bad. I want to be-leaf. Find it here.

 

6197S-25xOL._SL1200_
Mid century vintage bird feeders. We actually can’t have them because spilled seeds attract less attractive ground mammals. But they are cool. Find them here.
32532772_007_a_1024x1024@2x
Sphere planters would round out my planter collection. Find them here.
5d1547a0950a8b667f9c975b705e90b9
Bamboo lights. I can make these. But will I? Find them here.
DIY-Outdoor-Lighting-Ideas-for-the-Garden-7
I have four of these telephone pole insulators. I can probably make something similar if I had more. The blue ones are just about my favorite color on earth. Found this here.
DIY-Outdoor-Lighting-Ideas-for-the-Garden-8
I can so easily make this. A few “big box store” purchases and an hour or two. This shold probably go from my wish list to my PROJECTS folder. I found it here.
garden-glory-spade-4.jpg
Because I already have normal looking hand spades. Find it here.
illusion-bench-by-22-22-edition-design.jpg
The Illusion Bench. Need? No. Want? Yes. Find it here.
timthumb.php
Collapsible bucket. Every garden needs one. Find it here.
17mavdnupj0gqjpg
Fresnel lenses magnify flowers. I’d like these in way huge dimensions. Seems like a cross between art and science. I found them here.
ca-times.brightspotcdn.com
Rolling planters. I’ve had it in my mind to build these for years. This could be the summer. I’d love to have something tall in them – with a trellis and vines perhaps. I’d love the option to move them around. See them here.

Buffalo Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs. Okay, I already have this. Lots of them. Cartons of them, in fact. But you should put it on your Christmas garden wish list. Order it here on my blog!

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.
