There are plenty of attractive bedding plants suitable for the colder season. Japanese orange Azalea, for one, can add bright, fiery colours to your garden.

Winter heather also can add flush, contrasting against the dull palette of winter. Check our round-up of Winter Bedding Plants for more.

Autumn is the perfect time to plant your winter bedding plants. This is the time of year when they establish and take over from your spent summer plants.


Above all, they can provide you with fresh new blooms to enjoy in winter.

The most effective solution you can get is to have the right heating source. It could be a fireplace, a portable fire pit, a heater, or having your patio deck heated.

Continue to water them in the middle of the day when temperatures are a little warmer. Cover larger shrubs and trees with frost cloths and fleece covers.


Use a windbreak for protection against icy winds, and so on.

Just don't wait until you're freezing. Be proactive about it.


If you're going on a trip, do your research temperature-wise on your adventure.

Although evergreens with lights look beautiful and festive, go beyond the evergreen boughs. DIY outdoor ornaments, fire pits, garden building holiday retreats can all look Christmassy.

Icicles and Christmas balls can add a festive touch to trees. Using ornament hooks, hang them on branches and twigs.


If the branch is too wide to fit an ornament hook, wrap a zip tie around the branch, securing the hook to the tie or line.

Light hanging clips are the easiest way to hang your Christmas lights outdoors. Using light clips also make your lighting setup look nicer, especially when hung on gutters, shingles, and windows.

Wrap all connections between strings with electrical tape to keep moisture out. Plug lights into a covered outlet protected with a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI).

Decorate your home with Christmas DIY pieces! It could be an alternative advent calendar, paper trees, snow globe, or even wreaths.

Stick to the rustic Christmas cheer. It's a cosy interior concept, especially ideal for log cabin homes or garden buildings.


The colour and lighting scheme and the idyllic surroundings scream the perfect Christmas space.

From tool sets to greenhouse units, you’ll find practical present ideas online. But make sure that gift is up for the gardening tasks.
