Green shopkeeper Nigel Berman is thinking hard about how to give his Mum a gift that is more than just the usual hurried card and flowers, he’s going for “something more thoughtfully chosen, that’s more meaningful and more eco friendly (of course)”. Here’s what he suggests:
Oranges are not the only fruit, but these fantastic fruiting trees make rather nice Mother’s Day gifts. Put some tang into your mum’s life, they look fabulous in a hallway, conservatory or even out on the patio during Summer. Supplied approx 50cm high, it’ll fruit up to four times year. Orange trees look and smell terrific and will bring a taste of the tropics into the house all year round. £49.99
