Word of the Day: Pomander

Hello there friends, and welcome back. As always I am Rummie, your Outdoor Gardener. Once again we are lookingat  ways to wrap up your gardens, lawns or what space you use to grow things for the winter. Today we are going to take all those flowers and fruits that are about to perish. You know all those things that smell really good and make what is known as a pomander. The first thing you need...

Pomander (po-man-der) \POH-man-der\, noun;

1. a mixture of aromatic substances enclosed in a perforated bag or box and used to scent clothes and linens or formerly carried as a guard against infection; also : a clove-studded orange or apple used for the same purposes

2. a box or hollow fruit-shaped ball for holding pomander

And there we have it, your very own personal, homemade pomander. You can that decorate it anyway you like to give your own unique flare. As always remember to spread what you learned here today to your friends and family, they will appreciate you for. And don't forget to leave us an example of your handy work down people. We love hearing from you. Thank you.
