Here are natural baubles crafted with raffia, twine or natural cord such as hemp to string acorns, crab apples or hops. Here are beautiful napkin adornments made with dried herbs, flowers and seed heads of rosemary, pine, bay, rosehips and berries. Save your seeds to make these whimsical crafted creations. Key plants include opium poppies, love-in-a-mist, and the pretty pale lilac flowers from midsummer of Scabiosa stellate. Press flowers, or make scented arrangements with freesias, phlox or pinks. Make a sealed terrarium with any favourite large glass container, wreaths, a picture frame of dog wood, birch or willow, use winter squash as vases, make a mini hanging garden, learn how to dry plants, propagate succulents and all about foraging and after care.
