The air purifying qualities the pineapple plant possesses make it an unusual gift to send for a 40th birthday. Life is that bit better with this plant!

Send a 40th birthday gift perfect for a patio. Our Twisted Trees range is the perfect blend of charm and class. The bays and olives will look superb in family homes, flaunting an elegant spiral trunk and a neat bunch of evergreen leaves. Its Mediterranean style will enrich the patio, driveway, or garden of its recipient.

For a small and easy to care for 40th birthday gift, choose our Life Begins at 40 or Fab at 40 Rose Bush. Roses are enduring symbols of love and accentuate any garden with their beautiful vibrant colour. Both floribunda variety blooms all summer long, so are perfect for a birthday in June and July. What more can a gift offer? Life, colour, and wonderful fragrances for countless years to come.
