Falling as it does in the middle of winter, Christmas isn’t a great time for garden lovers (some people may think). We couldn’t disagree more! Christmas would be nothing without plants…

Come in from the cold to my Christmas home. Hope you like the festive wreath on the door that I made from the pine tree branches. Let me serve you some homemade ginger ale – the ginger is homegrown!

Christmas trees are sold in pots, plant them out in the garden later and in a few years you will be growing a Christmas hedge!

Let’s sit around the tree to open our presents. I got a living picture. What did you get? Oh, a Christmas cactus, lovely!

Now, do come through for the Christmas dinner. These brussel sprouts and parsnips were home-grown. I’ve also added a bit of a kick with herbs and hot pepper that I grew on the windowsill.

Say, did you know that pepper is an aphrodisiac…? And look, we just happen to be standing under some mistletoe….

Merry Christmas.
