How to: Christmas colour

Rejuvenate the entertaining area for summer festivities. 


Pots of poinsettia and ixora are a colourful beginning. Masses of other options are blooming at the local nursery: petunias, fuchsia, begonias, coleus. 


To create a display like the one pictured here, choose a large wire basket, line it with a commercial liner and fill with the top quality potting mix. A spill-over plant like million bells will drip prettily over the sides. Choose complementing or contrasting colours to match the garden and entertaining area. Water every two days.
