Inspiring tree thoughts

Recycle potted trees into a garden

Trees in containers are a wonderful way of bringing nature into your living space.  Whether planted in pots on the patio, or even a live ‘Christmas tree’ in your home, the time might come that a tree needs more space for growth.  Relocating the tree to the garden makes economic sense and can act as a reminder of a memorable time.

At this time of year some trees have already started showing their autumn colours.  Leaf arrangements, pruned branches and fruits and seeds can be part of a seasonal display to brighten your home.

Farmer chic

What could be better than picking fresh bay leaves and lemons from your own garden for use in the kitchen?  Start a ‘tree pantry’ by planting fruit and citrus trees, with an olive or bay tree to receive the bounty of nature.
