What could be a greater gift for a gardener than to have a beautiful indoor plant that they can tend and enjoy throughout the dark winter months. Perhaps you know someone who you would like to send one of these stunning gifts to. Below we have chosen some of our favourites available this Christmas.

The decorative candle buds remain tightly closed for up to 14 days before swirling open into the most lavish tropical flowers, each up to 15cm (6in) across. As one fades another opens, with each bloom lasting for an incredible 4-6 days! ‘Festive Flair’ will re-bloom many times during the year indoors and can also be moved to a sheltered patio during the summer months.

This charming Spider Azalea is full of festive cheer! Like a little Christmas tree with a white frosting of snow, the starry blooms gleam against its dark, evergreen foliage. Azalea Magisnow ‘Winter Beauty’ makes a delightful gift that will last for years. In winter its rounded buds burst open just in time for Christmas and last for several months. During summer it remains a shapely cone of glossy leaves that adds and exotic feel to the conservatory or even a patio table outdoors.
