There’s nothing like a fresh display of greens during the holidays, whether on your patio or indoors. Wreaths, garlands, centerpieces and porch pots add a festive feel and amazing smell to your home. The question is how do you keep them looking their best?

  1. We’re here with a few tips and tricks to keep those greens going!
    Always buy greens that are as fresh as possible. Just like we do with Christmas trees, give the greens a shake before you buy them to be sure there isn’t excess leaf or needle drop. From the moment they arrive, Willow Ridge always keeps your greens in fresh water.
  2. If you are creating your own wreath, swag or garland, be sure to give the greens a fresh cut and place them in water at home until ready to assemble.
  3. If you are using your greens outdoors, try and place them in shady locations as sun and wind will dry them out quickly.
  4. If your greens are indoors, try to place them away from heating vents, sunny windows and fireplaces.
  5. Keep a spray bottle filled with water handy and mist your greens at least once a day, especially indoors where the air tends to be dry.

These simple steps will help keep your displays looking bright and fresh, so gather those greens and create a Christmas to remember!

Happy Holidays!
