Winter is nearly upon us, and the winter holidays are quickly approaching! Everyone is changing out their harvest theme for Christmas trees, trading in their cornucopias for wreaths and evergreens. We change from symbols of abundance to signs of a season full of generosity, giving, and the gathering of loved ones.
In the greenhouse industry, winter is a time to celebrate! Festive outdoor patio pots make entrances inviting and welcoming. Cheery wreaths adorn front doors. Garlands trail along windows, framing in outside’s winter scenes while cozy-ing up the inside. Once-empty window boxes are now full of long-lasting spruce tops and winter evergreens. Beautiful and exotic houseplants are in full bloom. We watch in awe as Christmas Cactus, Amaryllis, Cyclamen, and Poinsettias flower.
Decorating for the winter season can be fun and easy! Make up DIY patio pots with a few balsam tips, spruce tops, and flat cedar sprigs. Add Dogwood twigs, winter berry, and birch branches for height and color. Decorate with bows, pine cones, pheasant feathers, or dried hydrangeas for added interest. To stabilize your patio pots from strong winds, we recommend adding a dirt/sand mix to the bottom of the pot and then watering the items in when you are finished.
Stop in for all of your outdoor winter decorations: wreaths, garland, custom-made patio pots, and all of the items needed for DIY patio pots, window boxes, and hanging baskets. We also have fun Christmas ornaments and gifts! It’s time to “Deck the Halls” and welcome the winter season. Hope to see you soon!
