There are fewer gardening jobs to keep you busy in winter, so make the most of extra time and plant up a stylish container to decorate a terrace or doorstep.
This elegant cube-shaped container is filled with the curly sedge, Carex buchananii, and Helleborus niger, the Christmas rose, which starts to flush pink in January and February.
You should be able to find both plants at the garden centre at this time of year.
Here’s how to make this simple display.
You will need
Helleborus niger 10cm pot x3
Carex buchananii 2 litre pot x1
- 30cm satin zinc cube pot
- Peat free, multi-purpose compost
