An early preview of Christmas. I have found a few ideas to remind us of our 'green' conscience, looking to the garden for inspiration at Christmas. Greenery from conifer sprigs to scented bay is the most cost effective way to adorn a room for this joyous season. There is so much inspiration and choice on-line, to inspire garden related gifts, tool bags, garden tools and gardening aprons. Fair trade garden equipment is perfect for any eco friendly gardening enthusiast. I love the Hessian sack which could be used to wrap the gifts with a lovely olive green satin ribbon and some conifer sprigs ...then re-used as a gift for the garden. Alternatively, the basket could be filled as a gardening hamper.
