I spent yesterday touring the garden centres of Holland, looking for Christmas inspiration. I found it in spades, from delicious Oliebollen (literally oil-balls, rather like a spherical doughnut spiked with raisins), to magnificent displays of poinsettia, orchids and Christmas trees. What was especially lovely was the range of natural materials for sale – holly berries, conifer branches, pine cones and moss, presented here in crates of assorted varieties. Compared to the UK the prices were exceptionally low, making me wish I could transport some of these goodies home to satisfy my own creativity.

Just a touch more festive than gum leaves!!
Garden shopping in Holland this week? I don’t know what you do for a living, but it must certainly not be boring. 🙂
I like putting moss in some of my pots, especially the Alocasia. It really helps keep the soil cooler and damp longer. Great post!
Great tip. Thanks for your appreciation and have a super weekend!
