Just because it’s cold outside right now doesn’t mean that gardeners aren’t thinking about getting out in the yard and garden, and doing the things they love. So with that in mind, here are a few gift suggestions for the green-thumbs on your list.

Ames Action Hoe

Weeds have no place in the garden, and with the 54 Inch Wood Handle Ames Action Hoe, they are easily removed. Perfect for using around plants, the hoe works by using a back and forth push-pull motion to cut weed roots deep under the surface, and makes quick work of weeding. The triangular-shaped head makes it simple to get between plants and flowers.

Where to buy: Home Depot and other home improvement stores.

Comments from the Capper’s Farmer editors: Strong, sturdy handle. Simple to use. Does an amazing job in a lot less time. Fantastic product at a great price.

Ames Garden Cart

A great gift for the person who is always doing yard work, the Ames 5 cu. Ft. Total Control Garden Cart delivers big performance in a compact, well-designed package. It features a never-rust tray, a handle designed to provide superior control and maneuverability, 18-inch knobby pneumatic tires that roll easily over rough and uneven ground, and a 200-pound capacity.

Where to buy: Home Depot and other home improvement stores.
