How do you keep the greenery alive in freezing temps?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
In this particular planter I keep soil in it and add the greens directly into the soil. I also water the planter when I've finished. Generally these plants will stay alive and green for up to a month. With other arrangements, such as window or mailbox swags, I use floral foam. Once it is soaked in water add the various greens to complete the arrangement. If the temperatures drop below freezing the plants are fine in the frozen foam, If it doesn't freeze, you'll need to add water occasionally to keep plants alive. Thanks for asking!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Don't forget about the outside of your home and add some cheer to your front porch. Prep your mailbox or flower box with evergreen trimmings, berries, and a few candy canes.
