Always interested in gardening but since moving I now have a larger rural garden, lots of opportunities. Chickens, veg patch, greenhouse and pond.

Love it! I did this one year on a smaller scale for a heart shaped wreath, worked well...must try to remember to copy this idea and have them as tree decorations! Do love a bit of spray paint 😃

@clipperty it worked way better than I imagined. I wonder if I can leave them in the garden for longer this year as they are such beautiful seed heads. Although these were in great condition, benefited from drying well. I think I need to try your idea too next year.

A friend sprays them purple to have in the house after flowering, so they are eminently versatile. She has tons, beautiful garden if ever you’re in Sussex - see https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/34330/ xx

Hi chaps! Spoke to the owners today, they work so hard in the Moongate Garden to make everything right for their open days - you won’t be disappointed. Lee - follow @sussexwestngs and @ngseastsussex for regular updates on NGS gardens open in Sussex. I can always send you a booklet if you can’t get hold of one, they’re due out towards the end of Jan, just let me know 😃 Also follow @driftwood @jacaranda @lynnopaynter @jennielorraine @bernardean who all open their gardens in Sussex for NGS @leebe
