Garden plant gifts are special presents for special people. Picking the right plant does not mean that you need to buy something flowering or flashy. All you need to do is buy something that the recipient will cherish. However, make sure that the recipients can afford the care and attention the plant requires. A luxurious orchid might be a bad option for a friend who is usually on the move but a fern could be a much better to present in this scenario.
