Tools to Great Growing:

Next-Level Watering

Who says watering needs to be boring? Welcome glamorous style into your plant-care routine with our Oasis Watering Can featuring a light-catching gold finish and chic, elegant design that you certainly won’t mind leaving out on display. Form meets function in this beautiful decor addition, with a slim, perfectly balanced handle that gives extra control and precision when watering.

If the thought of sticking to the right watering schedule sends a chill down your spine, we’ve got terrific news for you. You can take all the guesswork out of watering with a Plant Moisture Indicator. This handy, smartly designed tool quickly sticks into your plants’ soil and begins to drain its blue hue as plants become low on water, treating you to a visual signal that a drink is needed.

Here’s to Dirt-Free Fingernails

As you dig into growing, there is definitely the potential for some messes to occur. If cleaning out dirt from your fingernails after planting doesn’t sound like a fun time to you, a good pair of gloves can be great to have. Also a major plus, gloves keep hands protected from irritating scratches or scrapes that can sometimes happen during planting.

If you’re looking for gloves that will last, you can’t go wrong with the Aqua Armor Leather Gloves. Featuring water-resistant technology and oh-so-comfortable cowhide leather, these gloves are perfect for working in the dirt. An over-the-wrist design pairs with shirred elastic to keep hands and wrists clean by stopping dirt from sliding down into the gloves.

Or, make projects even easier with Miracle-Gro's Blue Grip Gloves that put meaning to the old saying of “fitting like a glove”. These brightly colored, form-fitting gloves are leveled up with a water-resistant, latex coating that shields hands from not only moisture, but from pokey plants or thorns that can sometimes sneak their way into the fabric of gloves.

Boost Nutrients for Extra Growth

Just like we need necessary nutrients to stay strong and healthy, plants need extra nutrients to grow bigger and more beautiful. This means selecting the right potting mix at the start of planting, along with keeping plants on a regular feeding schedule. Find out how often your specific plants likes to be given fertilizer, then begin to incorporate those added nutrients into their diet as often as they need it.

Pick a Pot

You can’t quite have gorgeous potted plants around the house without also having gorgeous pots! When you purchase a plant from Greendigs, your plant will already arrive in a pot of your choosing. But if you’re looking to repot your plant into a bigger home to give it more room to grow, a new pot could be in order.

If you’re in need of something a little larger for floor plants, our matching pair of durable Georgian Planters bring instant elegant style to any space, whether you choose to use them indoors or out. Or, if you’re in need of a bigger pot, but not the best with keeping to watering schedules, welcome home a watering cheat code, the MoMA Pot, that features a self-watering design that helps prevent over- and under-watering.

Dig In

Unless you’re looking for the more rugged approach of scooping soil with your hands, a good shovel is also helpful to have in your indoor tool shed. This Soil Scoop not only looks pretty enough to hang on the wall, it’s also built to last with durable, hand-welded stainless steel. Its ergonomic bamboo handle sweetens the design, offering a comfortable grip while you work.
