Home comforts are important come December. Think colourful floor cushions on the deck, night perfumed plants, laughter and frolicking on the lawn. Potted herbs, tumbling toms and strawberries make last minute flavour bursts and garnishing flourishes possible with minimum fuss, and don’t forget to grab those great flavoured herbs for bbqs, drinks and mozzie busting.
Poinsettias and other Christmas Plants
Alongside the traditions of overeating, drinking and falling asleep in the afternoon sun, Christmas is also a time with strong plant associations.
Christmas time can make everyone a little stressed. The shops are crowded, you can’t find a parking spot and it seems you’re always running late for something. If you’re seeing red, maybe you should pull off the road into Eden Gardens and take a deep breath. Not only do we have heaps of undercover parking, we also have a café so you can grab a cool drink and wander around while you distress.
Christmas ‘to do’ list
Staying organised at Christmas can be tricky. Everyone tries to get things in advance, but things can easily snowball (even in our summers!) and get on top of us. To make the garden look tip top quickly, check out our summer garden hacks on the website.
