In the gar­den

Landscape (UK) - - Contents -

At­ten­tion is drawn to the fa­mil­iar el­e­gance of the snow­drop when it is dis­played in a trip­tych box. Two or three blooms are planted into each pot and the soil cov­ered with a hand­ful of feath­ery moss. An old wooden crate is then turned on its side and two thick branches care­fully sawn to fit the height of the box. This may take a lit­tle trial and er­ror. The rep­e­ti­tion and bal­ance of the rus­tic dis­play serves to un­der­score the win­ter flower’s sim­ple beauty.
