Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire No. 50: Bring flow­ers in­doors

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

A walk round your gar­den will re­veal sur­pris­ing num­bers of plants in flower. You might as well bring a se­lec­tion in­doors to brighten up the ta­ble. Some are scented, a spe­cial treat. Vibur­num ti­nus can gen­er­ally be re­lied on, with sober ever­green fo­liage and sprays of white flow­ers. Take your pick from sea­sonal blooms: the Christmas box, Sar­co­cocca, should af­ford some sweet shoots, as might win­ter hon­ey­suck­les such as Lon­icera Win­ter Beauty. The mix­ture can be beefed up with some good fo­liage, such as Elaeag­nus or Por­tu­gal lau­rel, and each year brings un­ex­pected flow­ers in the dead of the year.
