Petersham Nurseries

Running throughout December, Petersham Nurseries is hosting wreath-making workshops designed for everybody from complete novices to green-fingered experts, giving participants the opportunity to adorn their doors with cheerful wreaths to welcome guests. 

Led by Thomas Broom-Hughes, director of horticulture and his team, each fully compostable wreath will be made in Petersham Nurseries’ signature wild and dramatic style: with British-grown winter foliage, festive berries and garden-gathered seed heads, all bound with twine on a willow base (which is more sustainable than moss and wire). 

Participants will be immersed in the art of wreath making and given tips on how to forage an abundance of woodland materials and decorations, before taking your very own wreath masterpieces home with you. 

Book the Petersham Nurseries wreath-making workshop at EventBrite. Dates throughout December, £150

Caring for your wreath

Once hung, it’s important to take care of your wreath to keep it looking in fine form all season long.

“For moss-based wreaths, you can spritz them on the back with a fine water spray and it will keep the moss moist, which in turn, will keep the wreath foliage fresh,” advises Anna Paley-Smith. 

“For wreaths with a metal base frame, once the festive season is over, you can pull out all the foliage and decor. Leave the moss attached to the base. Wrap the moss-covered base in a bin bag and keep somewhere dark until next year – then you can reuse it. Save any dried foliage for next year too.”
