Creating your own seasonal decorations is a fun and satisfying activity around the holidays. If you plan your garden with extended seasonal interest in mind, you will be able to find a plethora of interesting materials in your own backyard. Choose plants that offer a variety of texture, color and form. Favorite plants for decorating include broadleaf evergreens (Andromeda, Boxwood, Inkberry, Daphne, Holly), conifers (Arborvitae, Chamaecyparis, Juniper, Spruce, Pine), and berries (winterberry, crabapple, Viburnum). Grasses and seed heads provide additional unusual textures. Stroll through your garden with some pruning snips and a basket, and you will be amazed what you can find to create interesting displays.
