Now normally I wouldn’t promote anything so stereotyped as gardens and flowers for the women in your life on special occasions. I’m often found requesting power tools for gifts (if I request anything at all) with a random screwdriver in my handbag. But I’m also a big fan of gardens and here’s where I’m willing to conceded. What better way to show your appreciation for your mum than by taking her out to explore some of the beautiful gardens that the county and country has to offer.
