European Holly

Holly is a plant well-suited to making Christmas decorations, both indoors and out. The leaves are hard, shiny and spiky, and take a long time to dry out. Therefore, they remain presentable for many days. Holly is used in conjunction with small evergreen branches, sprigs of mistletoe, pine cones and other seasonal offerings of nature to make wreaths, table decorations and other Christmas theme objects. Holly‘s green leaves and red berries are also Christmas colours. The red holly berries are mildly poisonous and should be kept out of reach of children and pets.

Coming up soon – mistletoe.
