Christmas Containers

We’ve been very busy setting everything up for Christmas and making containers and wreaths, not to mention winterizing all of the plants.  I thought I’d share some photos of what we’ve done so far.

Below are some pictures of the barn where most of the greenery and fillers are kept.

There’s a Christmas Home Tour, where a number of houses are decorated, inside and out, with the proceeds going to a local charity, Precious Minds.  Below are the containers I created for the Home Tour.

There’ve been a few custom orders completed (a few got away without pictures)

Judy’s been busy creating pre-made containers to sell.

And Nancy’s been busy creating pre-made containers as well.  I still have to take pictures of all of Nancy’s.  It started snowing the day she was working on them so I wanted to wait until the snow was off of them.

Follow this link if you’d like to see pictures of containers I’ve done in previous years.

    These all look great John – two questions though – What’s that fantastic stringy (I mean that in the best possible way) evergreen you’ve used (especially in that pot with the Protea & Magnolia? And secondly, since you seem to use the most Protea (& Leucospermum) in outdoor arrangements of anyone I know – how well do they hold up in containers?

      The stringy evergreen is Aussie Pine. I’ve been using it a lot this year – it’s great. The Protea hold up really nicely – the colour changes, but they dry wonderfully. I have some dried Protea on my front porch from a couple of years ago.
