With the first sign of crocuses and daffodils, the gardening season is ours – it’s time to prep your favorite and best gardening tools and get to work. For those who have carefully planned spring and summer gardens, this is a long-awaited moment after months of careful preparation – ordering seeds in the fall, growing seeds in the winter months, and tracking the growth and timing of each plant. Since most gardeners, both novice and expert, have their own systems and have learned what works best for them, finding new tools and equipment seems like a daunting task and maybe even a little risky. Luckily, we did a little research and found some tools and resources for profit. There is Erin Benzakein’s latest book, Discovering Dahlias, that is sure to educate and inspire you. There is also the new wellness line for sustainable organic plants Arber, an up-and-coming brand that will be launched in parallel with today’s celebration of Earth Day. And for the gardener who just needs a little TLC, try a CBD hand balm to soothe and restore sore hands after a long day at work.

In the following we have summarized some of our favorite garden tools for the cut flower lover for the balcony vegetable grower.

Cut flower enthusiast

A beautiful, blooming field of wildflowers or a carefully planned cut flower garden requires patience and knowledge. For those looking to become a cut flower grower or just want to grow a few windowsill flowers, you can find tools that are both inspiring and functional. If you need a little refresher or a few new tips, there is the much-acclaimed new book Discovering Dahlias by flower grower Erin Benzakein or an online course on growing and designing under the direction of Gabriela Salazar, the owner of a dreamy flower field in Mexico’s Valle de Bravo , will surely do the trick. And when you just need a small upgrade, a new collecting basket or garden hat is never a bad idea.

City gardener

A lack of outdoor space doesn’t stop those with green fingers from growing tiny but powerful micro-farms on their balconies, window sills, and living rooms. For the urban gardener, functional yet beautiful tools are key as they are likely to be kept from the perspective of an eye, like a Haws copper watering can or a lightweight hose (which can be easily tucked into a closet).

Enthusiastic gardener

The avid gardener probably already has some favorite tools. So try something new for the plants this season – like Arber’s organic plant wellness products or a beautiful bird bath to attract useful wild animals that support the garden and bring it to life. Or treat yourself to a CBD hand ointment, which is perfect for restoring sore hands after a bountiful day of harvest.
