MAKE USE OF GARDEN WASTE
If your garden prunings have left you with long, sturdy stems, use them to weave garden edgings or wreaths and similar decorations. To make an edging, cut several lengths of thick stems into short ’stakes’. Weave thinner, longer and more pliable stems around the stakes to form the edging. Leave the bottom part of the stakes bare so they can be pushed into the ground. Use to edge paths or garden beds. Or shape your prunings into wreaths while the stems are still pliable and store until Christmas-time for decorating.
Use woody cuttings, garden prunings and old stalks from sturdy plants or vines to make small, handy garden items.
