Make A Dogwood Wreath
For the inexperienced gardner, Dogwood is an easy plant to grow and look after. As the garden goes bare in the winter, it's bright red stems add a lovely splash of welcome colour. In the spring, it's necessary to cut it back severely to between 5-10cm from the ground. The bendy stalks are perfect to weave into a natural wreath.

This simple wreath looks great on it's own but you could decorate it further if you want. Tuck in a few paper poppies in for Rememberance or Anzac Day or attach some small festive baubles for Christmas. This wreath would also be a subtle decoration on a grave stone as an alternative to flowers that quickly wilt.
