A Christmas centerpiece can be made in several ways. You can either create a simple centerpiece of an arrangement of flowers in a low crystal container or make a long centerpiece in a plastic centerpiece tray with a variety of evergreens. Written instructions and step by step videos for how to assemble a Christmas centerpiece using a centerpiece tray and evergreens can be found at my website, along with a list of materials and resources where materials can be acquired. You can also look at our blog to see pictures of a beautiful arrangement of flowers in a holiday crystal container.

They grow best in rich, wet soil in direct sun _ partial shade, and should be thinned and replanted every two years.
