August Birthday Gift Ideas

Mini Pomegranate Tree

The Mini Pomegranate is a really great option to consider when buying tree gifts. This deciduous tree is traditionally native to the warmer, Mediterranean climates but it can be grown well here in Blighty! This fruiting tree can produce bright, red flowers in the spring, that eventually turn into the pomegranates we all know and love by summer.

Our Pomegranate Trees are a dwarf variety and so are ideal for people who might not have the outdoor space available for a full-size tree. The best part is that they’re self-fertile and therefore can produce fruit by the bounty, each and every year!

Sweet Dream Rose gift

It would not be a Tree2mydoor gift guide without the inclusion of one of our favourite roses! The Sweet Dream rose is a beautiful patio rose that is fully hardy to the colder British weather.

In summer, the rose will grow beautiful peach-coloured flowers that produce a delicate scent, this will be a huge favourite for the local bees, birds and butterflies too. This delightful plant gift will be delivered beautifully wrapped and ready to be enjoyed for any August birthday.

Mini Kaffir Lime Tree

The Mini Kaffir Lime Tree is a real beauty. Bright green leaves that have an exquisite glossy sheen and the limes are just as gorgeous, inside and out - greens of light and dark with a charming bumpy texture.

But don’t be mistaken, the Kaffir Lime Tree is more than a pretty face. Its leaves will give recipes a wonderful zest and aroma - a perfect August Gift for those who love whipping up a Thai recipe.

Kaffir Lime Trees are evergreen meaning they continue to look beautiful throughout the winter months too. A living plant gift that not only looks stunning but is practical too. 

Red Grapevine gift

You might be a little surprised to see our Red Grapevine Gift on this list. Traditionally, grapevines are found in the sunny Mediterranean for use in desserts and wine, but this plant gift is ideal for growing in the much cooler British climate.

In sunnier weather, the vines can be grown outside, but in cooler weather, the plant will need to be kept in a greenhouse. Making it an ideal gift for someone who already has a pair of green thumbs! In August, the grapes will be ripe and ready for eating making them the perfect summertime gift.

Pink Blueberry Plant

It is worth noting that our Pink Blueberries are self-fertile meaning that they produce bounties of berries without human input, making them a really great plant gift for gardeners of all skill levels.
