Make Christmas more atmospheric with plants

The Christmas holidays start at home

The most wonderful time of the year has arrived. Curl up with a cosy blanket, cradle a hot drink, and relax to the sound of soothing jazz in the background. Christmas is the time to relish the delights of winter, particularly if your interior decoration contributes to the festive mood. The best way to do that is to read our list of Christmas tips, tricks and techniques and make the most of plants this December.

Christmas for all the senses

People like something beautiful to look at, as well as something tasty to eat and drink. Plants are an excellent candidate here: as well as being highly attractive, they are incredibly good for you. So this year, don’t just fill your home with carols and candles — add plenty of plants as well. From a twinkling Christmas tree filled with plants and an extravagant plant display through to a plant wall for your Christmas stocking, trust us when we say that plants make Christmas even more atmospheric.

Giving is nicer than receiving

Everyone loves getting gifts, but we also know it's more rewarding to give than receive. Make that gift even more special with our brilliant DIY craft project: wrapping presents with plants. Of course, the nicest thing to give is a kiss to person you fancy — and where better to do that than under the mistletoe.
