9. Pick winter rosesIf you’d like some flowers to pick from the garden during winter, consider planting Helleborus, also known as the winter rose. With their delicate blooms in jewel-like colours, these winter roses light up the winter garden and are a favourite with florists for their long life in a vase. Both flowers and foliage are attractive and they’re perfect for shady spots in the garden, particularly in warmer areas. Plant divisions of established Helleborus clumps or sow seed in early spring.

10. Winter roseWhen there’s not much from the garden to pick in winter try planting shade-loving hellebore, aka winter rose. Ideal for planting under trees most hellebore are tolerant of frost. Depending on the variety, flowers can be white or shades of purple, pink and green. The foliage of winter rose is also very attractive and can be used in floral work.TIPS FOR LONG-LASTING CUT FLOWERSCut stems immediately before putting in clean, cool water.Add a small teaspoon of bleach to the water.Remove bottom leaves so they don’t rot in the water.Change water every day, if possible.Avoid hot, sunny or dry positions (such as beside a heat source).MORESo Your Garden Style Is: Cook’s GardenExotic Plants for Frosty GardensHow to Choose the Best Plants for a Small Garden
