Chrysanthemums bought in pots and added to the border look great in autumn.

Want to be more green in 2016?

If your resolution is to be greener this year, how about recycling your Christmas cards and real trees?

Cards can be taken to Sainsbury’s, Farlington until Tuesday, January 15.

The supermarket will make a donation to the Forest Stewardship Council based on the volume of cards collected.

The Woodland Trust is encouraging everyone to help it by putting old Christmas cards in collection bins available in most Marks & Spencer stores in Hampshire.

For every 1,000 cards recycled the company will fund the planting of one tree.

Drop­-off points will be available in most stores until January 31.

Real trees can be recycled into compost, rather than being incinerated.

Please take them to the Portsmouth recycling centre at Port Solent which is open seven days a week from 8am to 4pm.

You can also help the environment by volunteering at Southsea Greenhouse.
