With the garden practically bare of flowers, this is the time of year when I use more plants to decorate the home. And sometimes to gift to friends.
If you have a pretty basket, then a few inexpensive bedding plants are all you need to make a lovely composition..
Simply line the basket with a sturdy plastic bag, and place your bedding plants in, being careful to position them so the basket is pretty seen from all sides.
I put a couple of white roses in the centre, and some tiny white pansies all around the edges.
I like to add some moss to fill any gaps, and the moss makes it look more finished and professional. Moss can often be bought at florists, personally I know a country lane, bordered by high moss covered banks!
And if you find yourself with a plant left over, then a little moss and a tureen works well too!
