Thank you to Cranborne Garden Centre for suppling Horatio’s Garden Salisbury with this gorgeous Christmas Tree. Decorated by volunteers it stands in the garden and can be seen from the Garden Room as well as those outside enjoying the garden.
Nothing says Christmas more than a beautiful festive wreath adorning a front door – but instead of buying a wreath, have you ever considered making one with materials found in your garden?
Expert florist and National Garden Scheme Volunteer, Penny Snell CBE, gives her step-by-step guide on how to make a home-grown and wonderfully wild Christmas wreath.
To make Penny’s Christmas wreath you will need:
Metal wreath frame
Reel wire or green garden string
Variety of evergreen foliage from your garden
Variety of wreath embellishments from your garden e.g. Chinese lanterns, fir cones, holly berries, rosehips
