why are ses dons jardinière used rather than dons jardiniers in the weekend writing challenge. We are speaking of a woman. But it is not dons de
jardinière, so the adjective is modifying masculine dons
This question relates to:French lesson "Adjectives ending in -er become -ère in the feminine"

Actually in the French sentence jardinière is not an adjective, but a noun used as a complement: literally "gifts of gardener / gardener's gifts", hence the agreement with the gifted person :)
Bonne journée !
