Great Valentine’s Day Gifts Every Gardener Loves

While it’s still too chilly in most areas for outdoor planting, show your favorite person true love with a gorgeous gift of heart-inspired houseplants. Houseplants make the perfect Valentine’s Day choice: their long-lasting, air-cleaning, location-brightening leaves (and sometimes, flowers) will make your valentine swoon.

Opting for a long-lasting, living gift is a terrific choice for Valentine’s Day, especially because there are so many cool houseplants with heart-shaped leaves. So, not only does the plant offer the perfect symbolic holiday gesture, it continues to show your love throughout the year.

Visit your local Master Nursery® Garden Center to find the perfect houseplant and pick up a pretty pot to make the gift extra special. Make sure you add a bag of Bumper Crop® Potting Soil [Eastern & Midwestern Regions | Western Region], so your gift is perfectly planted in nutrient-rich soil, giving it a great start for your valentine. Why not add a bag of Bumper Crop® All Purpose Food to make sure your valentine can easily feed that heart-filled plant?

Try one of these houseplants with heart-shaped leaves for a perfect gift:

  • Heart-leaf Philodendron (Philodendron hederaceum): Easy-to-grow trailing vines enjoy part-shade. Add a stake to train the vines to climb.
  • String of Hearts (Ceropegia woodii): Petite, typically green and silver heart-shaped leaves adorn trailing stems. Prefers full sun.
  • Sweetheart Hoya (Hoya kerrii craib): Single, heart-shaped succulent eventually grows into a vine covered with small green hearts. Prefers low water (let it dry out between waterings) and tolerates low light.
  • Anthurium (Anthurium andraeanum): Great tropical appeal, with colorful bursts of red or pink “flowers” that are actually spathaceous bracts. Prefers bright, indirect light. Let soil dry out between waterings.
  • Heart-leaf Fern (Hemionitis arifolia): Pretty green foliage prefers indirect light and slightly moist soil.
  • Velvet Philodendron (Philodendron Gloriosum): If your valentine loves unique, hard-to-find plants–and you have an ample budget–you’ll dazzle your darling with this houseplant. Large, velvety-green leaves with contrasting white veins make this beauty a coveted choice. Prefers bright, indirect light and slightly moist, well-draining soil.

Want to win Valentine’s Day? Pair a perfect heart-leaf houseplant with a gift card to your honey’s favorite garden center! Then, go together to pick out the perfect rose bush, dahlia tubers, or tasty tomatoes when the weather warms—and offer to help plant them in the garden.

A perfect valentine shows love all year long, and beautifully blooming flowers that can turn into bouquets or tasty edible treats to harvest and cook together will win you major points. Make sure to pick up Bumper Crop® Soil Builder [Eastern & Midwestern Regions | Western Region] and Bumper Crop® All Purpose Food to give your new plants a great start.
