Over the moon 

Why worry about the days getting shorter? Let’s be frivolous, with lots of colour to create a light-hearted mood. And it doesn’t take much effort to create a visual gag like this. Stick orange stickers on both the pot and the beautiful Cyclamen. By carrying through the spots, they look like they’re just lying there loose. The green leaves are sturdy, they can cope with the odd dot. What do you think? Precisely - you can’t keep your eyes off it!

Room divider or room joiner? This climbing frame shows off your Cyclamens beautifully. And the pom-poms echo the spots that you’ve used elsewhere. The trick is to be brave enough not to worry too much about perfect colour matching. The colours can clash a bit. What you’re trying to do is create an eyecatcher. Got more space?
