There’s an abundance of plant material in winter that’s perfect for making a wreath, from the red berries of hawthorn and pyracantha to the tawny hues of last summer’s seedheads. See what you can gather from your garden or local park, but be careful not to take too many seeds or berries so there’s plenty left for the birds.

Festive Christmas wreath
This festive wreath is made with colourful plants or parts of them that should be easy to source from the garden, parks or florists. We’ve used more traditional plants like fir, holly and crab apples, but more unusual materials like echinops seedheads, sunflower seedheads and hydrangea bracts look great, too.

Contemporary Christmas wreath
This contemporary Christmas wreath is created using birch twigs, Scots pine sprigs and the fluffy seedheads of old man’s beard (Clematis vitalba). You can then leave it as is, or add some finishing touches using silver baubles or bells, to catch the eye.

It can be easy to get swept up in the merriment of Christmas: buying lavish gifts and an abundance of food and decorations. And that’s before you’ve even considered the tree.

Christmas season hasn’t officially commenced until we’ve made at least one batch of cutout cookies. Many of these classic Christmas cookies make an appearance on our dessert platters every single year.
As inextricable from mass festive wares as tinsel and paper hats, the poinsettia blazes red in most shops and homes during December. Being such an omnipresent sight makes it unappealing for many of us, but, thankfully – if the standard scarlet species makes you wince – there are less common forms available that are well worth buying to brighten the house this Christmas.
There’s no benefit to waiting weeks before buying a Christmas tree as all trees are cut at around the same time in late October. Choosing early means you have the widest choice available and can start caring for your tree as soon as possible.
