The December meeting of the Horticulture Group welcomed Valerie Clark who explained how to create three Christmas displays; two elegant arrangements for table top decoration and a beautiful standalone display for a room or hallway shown left. Valerie explained her technique as she worked and talked about the materials she used and how to prepare them. As well as ‘live’ flowers she also added dried plants and ornaments to provide additional interest to her displays. She answered numerous questions from the floor as she worked covering subjects such as which plants she liked to use for foliage and flower and how different plants could be conditioned prior to being used in displays.
