Chestnuts roasting on the open fire, carol singers singing – socially distanced of course! Christmas is here, and well it may seem a little different this year, many households are still getting into the spirit of Christmas by decorating their outdoor gardens. The outdoor Christmas decorations scheme is fully underway.
Trees, shrubs, even the ground can play an important role in creating a special winter wonderland that will delight your neighbours. The outdoor Christmas decorations will give you a wonderful view while you stay at home this holiday season.
When you think of great plants for winter landscapes, what may come to mind first are evergreens, such as the most well-known plants at Christmas. However, don’t think that any other trees or shrubs are useless at decorating, leafless or needle-less tree trunks can provide an ideal framework for dazzling light displays for anyone walking or driving past your home can enjoy.
Grow your own Christmas Tree
When you usually think of decorating the Christmas tree, we usually think of the cheap plastic supermarket one which has been stored up in the attic since Christmas 2005! However, if you’re lucky enough to grow you very own evergreen tree outside in the back garden, why not attach ornaments to it for the holiday season?
Some tress that are already in your garden grow in a more horizontal patten, but don’t let that stop you from scratching the creativity itch. Many homeowners in Birmingham have seized the opportunity already by decorating the limbs of these horizontal trees with classy Christmas ornaments.
