My Bedford farm was the inspiration for the special holiday gifts Iâ€™ll be making this year.
I enjoy coming up with distinct gifts and packaging. For these potted begonia cuttings, I used a box lid as the base, filled it with shredded craft paper, and wrapped it in cellophane. A twig placed in the center serves as a support for the cellophane, gift tag, and bow.
I love propagating rare plants from cuttings and do so often. Many friends ask for homemade specimens of some of my greenhouse plants. They make great gifts when presented in artisanal decorative pots. These were custom made by Guy Wolff Pottery.
