It is 4 weeks away to Christmas Day today, and here in Botanic Home & Garden Centre things are
looking festive! Come and visit us now, and over the coming weeks, to get great ideas and buy
unique decorations for your home this Christmas. We have a variety of displays showcasing our
interior decorations, which include whimsical décor to winter leaves to more traditional decorations.
Our themes this year encompass sparkling silver colours, warm autumnal shades, and vibrant
magentas. We have unique baubles, ornaments, faux flower garlands and more, to suit all tastes.
Coloured feathers are also very much in vogue and add a touch of 1930s Hollywood glamour to your
Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a real Christmas tree, and we have a variety of freshly
cut, non-shedding trees, with strong pine scents, which will suit rooms of all sizes. Don’t forget your
stand, and water your tree well to keep it fresh right through the season. If you are looking for an
artificial tree to stand the test of time, we have a great range in store now. It’s amazing how realistic
artificial trees have become, and you can even buy pre-lit trees for the ultimate convenience. We
also have a gorgeous range of unique hand-made dried fruit wreaths and decorations which have
sumptuous citrus and cinnamon scents. They will really add a special touch to your mantlepiece or
occasional table, or use them to brighten up a dresser or the back of your front door.
And speaking of front doors, it’s truly time to relegate the last of the pumpkins to the compost heap
and add some festive colour to your front doors and flower beds. Why not plant a variety of
cyclamen in and around existing beds and pots for that added bit of colour? Gaultheria’s have
beautiful richly coloured berries at this time of year and are perfect for adding a festive touch as
well. And if you are too busy or cold to consider venturing out to garden, why not buy some of our
pretty pre-made pots and bowls filled with varieties of seasonal plants. Group different sizes and
shapes of pots together for added height interest. Make sure to position some where you can see
them from indoors, to cheer you up on those dark days. Finally, to really get you in the festive mood,
add twinkling lights everywhere, both indoors and out. It really is the time to sparkle!
