No flowers? No problem. Use foliage

It’s winter downunder, which may mean there’s a lack of flowers in your garden. No problem. Pick foliage instead. You can make surprisingly good-looking displays using foliage alone.

For the biggest impact, select a range of leaves with contrasting shapes, colours and textures.

Autumn leaves bouquet

So, so simple but so beautiful – simple white flowers encircled by a ruffle of autumn leaves. I cannot think of anything easier to put together, yet this rustic bouquet is simply striking.

The second photo shows plum coloured heuchera leaves amidst dahlias and roses. Lovely!
