Home Living : November 29th 2011
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, November 29, 2011 3 GARDENS START A TRADITION WHY not start a new Christmas tradition. There are many native plants you can use and that will en- hance your environment for years to come. Australian conifers Among the best known are the bunya and hoop pines. Another species is the wollemi pine but these giants are definitely not suitable for a suburban garden. Some of the Callitris species might be more suitable for pots or in the the ground. Casuarinaceae This family contains the fam- iliar casuarina and al- locasuarina trees (commonly known as she-oaks). Less fam- iliar is Gymnostoma australian- um from the Daintree rainforest of North Queensland. It has a conifer-like appearance and is available in garden centres. A number of native plants have become significant as Chr- istmas plants. Blandfordia grandiflora and Blandfordia nobilis are commonly known as Christmas bells. These tufted plants have bell-shaped flowers in shades of red and orange with yellow tips. BUYING A REAL TREE FRESH ON THE BIG DAY WAKE UP TO THE SMELL OF CHRISTMAS Make sure the tree under the decorations will be fresh on the big day. THE tree is a cherished Christ- mas custom in many homes. But it's important to consider a few things before bringing home a real-deal Christmas tree. Timing is everything. Get your Christmas tree as close as possible to Christmas Day. Three weeks before is a healthy number to work on and should mean a fresh, vibrant tree on the day. Every year people rush to buy a live tree days before Christ- mas but if real is what you want, start looking around now. The thing to remember is freshness. Needles should look fresh and the branch should be intact when you touch it. Many people use the ''lifting and dropping'' method to test for the freshness of the tree. This should not result in a shower of green needles if the tree has plenty of life left in it. Fresh Christmas trees also have a fragrant pine freshness and you should be able to smell this. Harvesting a tree from a local farm is a favourite option for many shoppers. You can also go to your local nursery and get one. And if you hate shopping, take the online option. But remember to only order from a quality Christmas grower.
