I'll be honest, I'm not a natural salesman despite the fact I'm supposed to be in online sales. I'm much happier on the editorial side of things but as we approach Christmas I guess it's ok to peddle a few products so here we go:
We continue to expand out product range both in the growing department but also in the 'lifestyle' section where we're stocking other useful and interesting bits and pieces. So, anyway, you might be looking for the perfect gardeners gift and I'd say there's a fair chance we have it. Have a look at the following headings John has compiled to give you a flavour of what we have to offer:
Gardeners Gift Ideas with Quickcrop. Our new online gift shop includes gift ideas for any occasion or budget, from Christmas to birthdays and everything in between. From our broad range you will find the perfect Christmas presents or gardening gifts as well as some unique and unusual gift ideas.
Hand Woven Wicker Baskets Quickcrop stock the largest selection of hand woven wicker and rattan baskets in the country. They range in sizes from the smaller 14 in basket to the giant 26 inch deep wicker log basket. The quality of the weave is unmatched, it is very tightly woven making it more hard wearing while making sure handles and bases are able to take the strain of a fully laden basket. The baskets are light and easy to carry when empty yet strong enough to carry a full load of wood or turf for the fire. They can also be used as laundry baskets or very attractive planters for urban gardens.
Our selection of baskets are the perfect first step towards making your own gift baskets or hampers. A Gift basket is extremely easy to make and becomes much more than the sum of its parts. All you need to do is get a basket and fill with gifts, you can cover with cellophane and tie with a ribbon or bow, or just leave as is.
Gardening Books We stock a selection of only the most useful and well written gardening books, they are packed full of expert advice, tips, tricks and information. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned gardener you will find something new here. From Charles Dowdings Vegetable growing course and no dig gardens, to books on urban gardening and foraging wild foods, we've got it covered.
We also stock great books on self sustainability, permaculture as well as excellent books on foraging, such as 'Wild and Free' by Kit O'Ceirin (pictured) and her late husband Cyril.
Kitchenware Gifts Kitchen gifts and cookware get a lot of use, year round and we stock only the best and most stylish kitchen essentials and accessories.

From seeds and vegetable seedlings to raised beds and planters to grow them in, as well as all of the soil, compost, tools and accessories necessary for the job. Our raised beds start from as little as £15.00 per bed and we can deliver them promptly anywhere in the country. Perfect gifts for the vegetable gardener.
