That’s why this year’s Father’s Day we have picked out some of our favorite Home & Garden gifts for the Dads who appreciate a lush forest or an exotic jungle as much as any ‘man cave’.  Here are 10 of our favorite gifts that are sure to show your token of love and respect to the man whose thumbs are as green as his heart is big.

5. Organic Potting Mix

Organic Potting mix may not be the flashiest gift, but it is still a thoughtful and useful one dad can use to help his plants thrive. 

Much like socks on Christmas, potting mix may seem like a boring gift to give dad on Father’s day. However, it is a very thoughtful gift as it fills a need. Plants need potting mix to thrive. A good potting mix will provide the nutrients a plant needs as well as remaining aerated to prevent root suffocation. This organic potting mix   from Soltech Solutions is a great potting mix as it consists of compost, pine bark, coir, worm castings and perlite. To learn more about soil and how it can benefit your plants, check out this blog from Soltech Solutions which is a guide to choosing the right potting mix for your indoor plants.  


6. Plant Light Fixture

A light fixture can almost be as important as the bulb it holds. 

With plants comes the need for light. While you might have a good south facing window or live free from surrounding apartments blocking your sunlight,  it can be beneficial to use a grow light to ensure your plant gets the correct amount of light. Check out this blog 5 Gorgeous Grow Light Fixtures For Your Vita Grow Bulb from Soltech Solutions to learn more about some light fixtures that will accent your Vita beautifully. 



7. The New Plant Parent Book

If you want to start a new hobby with your dad, why not start an indoor garden with him.

As the old saying goes, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man how to fish and you’ll feed him for a lifetime.” Instead of giving your dad a plant and having it die due to his lack of knowledge, get him a plant and the knowledge of how to make it thrive. This way, he’ll have a new passion that the two of you can share. The New Plant Parent The New Plant Parent: Develop Your Green Thumb and Care for Your House – Plant Family  by Darryl Cheng provides a brilliant insight into the ins and outs of plant care and expresses it in simple terms that make the beginning of your plant journey less confusing.

Historically, the idea of plants has remained pretty much the same. You take a seed, dig a hole, plant the seed and give it water. Voilà, you have a plant. However, due to modern farming and the ever growing population, viable farmland is getting harder to maintain. This is where aeroponics can come into play. Aeroponics is a style of farming where plants are grown without soil. This sounds crazy, soil is one of the most important parts of plants as it provides nutrients for the pants. However, aeroponic systems are quite effective at providing everything a plant needs to survive.
