Head out on a hunt for mistletoe
Have you ever been kissed under the mistletoe? The tradition of stealing a smooch has been around for centuries and this evergreen plant is steeped in mythology. Hang a bunch above your door this Christmas as a symbol of love.
Create a wildlife haven in your garden
Woods are full of wildlife and just one tree can support hundreds of species. Imagine being able to provide food and shelter for so many animals, insects and birds in your own garden! Mid November to late March is the best season for planting, so why not get your spade out and start digging?
