December Monthly Inspiration

When the shorter, darker winter days arrive it is easy to forget that the garden can still have much to offer. Gone are the bright displays of herbaceous borders, the green woodland canopy overhead is a carpet of leaves on the ground beneath our feet.  Why venture out when it is cold and uninviting? 

This is a question relevant not just to us but also to pollinating insects. Plants have to work harder to attract the few that are still active in colder weather and it is for this reason that many produce powerfully scented flowers. These flowers might be small but their effect is far-reaching. One or two planted close to a path can be enjoyed even on the shortest of forays into the garden. 

      Evergreens are useful for providing both colour and structure in winter and they don't have to be just green. For many, as the temperature drops, the leaves take on tints of red, pink, purple or bronze and make for some dramatic colour changes.  


        Why not explore what your garden has to offer on Christmas morning this year and bring some colour and scent to the table with a vase of freshly picked flowers and foliage? They might not be perfect but will surely be all the better for being home-grown.
