And just like that it’s the last month of the year. Our gardens have been through a lot in the past week with snow and strong winds, but hopefully winter protection preparation was enough to keep tender plants safe through the conditions.
It’s such a beautiful sight, seeing a layer of frost or snow settled in the garden, brightening up a dark morning. If you want to brighten up your garden even more, these top ten plants will help to cheer up a winter garden with their flowers, foliage and fruits. Or bring a festive feeling into your home or porch with these picks for Christmas displays.
If you’ve already got your Christmas lights up, there’s still chance for you to enter your festive displays into Illumination Street, with £5,000 worth of prizes to be won. Share your pictures on social media, tagging #switchontoshowoff and #IlluminationStreetWeek.
However, if the cold weather is keeping you indoors, don’t forget that houseplants
can keep you busy and bring much happiness to your home.
Grab a warm drink and tune into ITV for Love Your Garden on Tuesday evenings at 8pm and Love Your Weekend on Sunday mornings from 9am.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
