Just because it's getting chilly and barren outside, doesn't mean it can be warm and green inside your home. Bridget from Mahonia is leading three holiday wreath making classes for us next week and she's shared her top plants for the season with the blog. You can find all the plants below in the shop as well as a lovely selection of holiday ornaments and other seasonal delights.
These little rosemary trees are adorable and edible. Brings the fresh scent of rosemary into your home and alleviate the frustration of trying to keep herbs fresh in the fridge. I love the idea of being able to add a fresh spring of rosemary to whatever I'm making.
Bridget recommends a lemon cypress for anyone who doesn't have space for a holiday tree in their home, "They're super festive!" Mahonia has these in mid-and-mini sizes. This plant will add a nice pop of bright green to your home to chase away the winter blues. Bridget says you can scrunch the leaves to release their fragrance.
These myrtle topiaries are shorn to look like little pine trees. Bridget warns they can be finicky but are totally worth the effort, "Keep up the watering, don't let them go completely dry." This is another plant with leaves she enjoys running her fingers over. It has a fresh, clean scent.
Air plants are year round splendor for your home. Bridget says their "Silvery tones" go well with sparkly glam or super natural holiday decor. In her wreath making class, you'll have the option of adding air plants to your indoor-wreaths.
Winter doesn't mean poinsettias are your only option. Bridget suggests red amaryllis and paper whites, which are really fragrant and smell similar to jasmine. The shop will be getting them in over the next few weeks.
