Tis the season for red and green to take over your life with Christmas on the horizon. It’s so close that you can almost taste the feast and hear the wrapping paper being teared open.
Christmas isn’t just a time for your friends and family to gather and celebrate a mystical man in a sled, but for your true festive nature to shine through. For those who love Christmas, there are easy ways to decorate your house through your garden bed.
Throw away those tired sparkly lights, and instead plant some of these around your home for an effortless nod to Christmas this season.
NSW Christmas Bush
Add a splash of colour in your garden with the beautifully festive NSW Christmas Bush. The Australian native is a green shrub with cream coloured flowers, which turn a crimson red after time.
With its smaller size and ability to withstand the Australian climate, it is an easy addition to your garden this Christmas season. Plant them now, and by the time it’s Christmas, you can adorn the table with a few branches from the tree for simple decoration.
One of the fastest growing Australian natives, the Cider ‘Gum’ Tree is the perfect addition to your Christmas garden. This Eucalyptus will thrive in the climate as it is a native tree, meaning that it will outlast the season. Its main feature is its silver toned leaves, which carry a subtle scent that will add a natural and rustic feel to your Aussie Christmas dinner.
If you are one of those people that dive right into this season, then a conifer is exactly the plant you need to aptly elevate your garden bed this festive season. If you opt for a smaller one, you can have mini trees dotted around your garden, or go for a tall one for a statement tree. With its pine needle look, you can get the classic Christmas look.
Nothing says Christmas quite like the gorgeous poinsettia. The flowering plant will make for the perfect addition to your garden, or can even serve as a gift for any gardener. Grab one this season to make a statement this Christmas.
