Want to knock it out of the park this Mother’s Day? Check out these great Mother’s Day gift ideas from our Garden Center, now open 7 days a week and ready to help you with experts in every area. We asked the pros in the Garden Center to recommend their top picks for this season, here they are, in no particular order.

#1. James Valley Gift Cards are super popular and allow mom to do the gift picking for herself (a fun tradition for many).  These are available in any amount online at or in the  garden center.  

#2. Hanging baskets and patio planters are beautiful and make it easy for mom to instantly perk up the patio or deck with pre-planted flowers in either sun or shade mixtures.

#3. A Mother’s Day weekend shopping trip to our Garden Center with her favorite people is what many moms want most—and a little help with the planting would be great!

#4. If mom loves birds, James Valley has all the birding supplies she needs including bird feeders, bird houses, bird baths, bird seed and some fun outdoor bird décor.

#5. Perennials, shrubs and trees remind mom year after year and season after season how much she is loved. We have a huge selection in the nursery behind our greenhouses.

#6. Wind chimes. Some people love them, some people don’t…but if your mom is a fan, we have the best wind chime selection around!

#7. House plants. Every home décor magazine out there raves about the “hot” decorating item of 2021—house plants! We keep getting shipments in as fast we sell them, with a huge selection that changes often.

#8. Succulents and cactus. Still very popular and easy to take care of, we have an entire section of these fun plants ready for gift giving.

#9. Outdoor décor. We have it all: porch signs, pottery, statues, furniture, rain and temperature gauges, welcome mats, garden sculptures and SO MUCH MORE.

#10. Outdoor lighting. From solar lights to twinkling patio lights, we have what mom wants. And probably something you want too!

AND, if you really want to WOW mom this year, our professionals can install patios, firepits, water features, outdoor kitchens, decking and more for a mom who’s looking to create an outdoor escape in her own backyard.

As always, thanks for supporting local shopping and local employees at James Valley Landscape Solutions! Let’s go outside!
