Botanical Gift Ideas from Jessica at Linden Hill
‘Tis the season!
I would like to share my ideas for decorating your home this holiday season as well as let you know about the botanical holiday gift ideas we have to offer here at
For essential outdoor décor, gorgeous mixed green wreaths always add a festive touch. Ours are crafted by hand using freshly gathered boughs. These wreaths will add beauty and spirit to a front entrance or foyer at your home and business. We offer different combinations of materials, including fir, boxwood, chamaecyparis, rhododendron and juniper with berries. Look closely to decide which of these bountiful ensembles strikes your fancy. You can also choose your own unique bow, with options ranging from traditional red velveteen to flashy, glittery chartreuse, with every color in between. We also have roping in pine and boxwood to adorn fencing, railings, lampposts and door frames.
Jessica’s wreath care tip: For longevity, I spray our wreaths with Wiltpruf, which keeps them fresh and prevents moisture loss. Try to keep your wreath out of direct sun and away from heat. You can also mist your wreath daily with water to keep the greens looking their best.
For indoor greening, I am creating fresh winter bouquets using the abundant green materials gathered here at Linden Hill. These make wonderful unique and attractive centerpieces. We also have the very popular, robust bunches of freshly cut winterberry. Make sure to keep all of these bouquets in fresh water, changing out daily, to ensure long lasting beauty.
Holiday houseplants include four varieties of amaryllis, colorful mixtures of cyclamen, paperwhite narcissus, as well as my favorite – the uncommon poinsettias. These tabletop topiary poinsettias make delightful and unique hostess gifts, or as an interesting centerpiece on your own dinner table. We also have a variety of our very popular, one-of-a-kind terrariums, glassware gardens, ornaments and other signature creations.
For garden-related gift giving, I suggest Jerry’s book, Lessons from Linden Hill, it is a hands-on manual brimming with practical how-to advice for creating our look in your own garden. Consider giving one of our special edition holiday gift certificates in any amount.
In the Cottage you will find heavy glass deck prisms (to add color and light to winter gardens), Thymes Frasier Fir candles, Campo de Fiori candles in terracotta and Greg White handcrafted and individually glazed porcelain cups.
