Place a thin layer of mulch at bottom of bowl.
Arrange conifers (in original plastic nursery pots) in bowl. Position tallest plant slightly off-center in back to anchor composition. Fill in with rest of plants, leaving an inch around rim.
Add bits of bubble packaging to keep pots in place, then finish with a top layer of mulch.
Keep in a protected location outdoors. If temperature drops below 20 degrees, move to a garage or other unheated, sheltered location.
