Christmas jobs and plants for the Garden.
Holly and Ivy are great plants for this time of year, but are sadly often overlooked.
When many other plants in the gardens can look bare, hollies have a healthy vitality that can carry a garden through the winter. Their glossy leaves provide a bright green shine and their natural pyramidal shape requires very little pruning to keep them in shape. Then, of course, there’s the addition of bright red berries livening up a dark corner. And also look great on the mantlepiece at Christmas.
Then what about Ivy; often scaring people as they can take over, but that’s only some varieties. Chose the right plant for the right place and it will add all year colour and texture.
