Everything you need to start your own Halfling garden on your own piece of Shiredom!
'For you little gardener and lover of trees,' she said to Sam, 'I have only a small gift.' She put into his hand a little box of plain grey wood, unadorned save for a single silver rune upon the lid. 'Here is set G for Galadriel,' she said; 'but also it may stand for garden in your tongue. In this box there is earth from my orchard, and such blessing as Galadriel has still to bestow is upon it.'
- The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 2, Ch 8, Farewell to Lórien
