It's that time of year when there are plenty of twigs and leaves lying around that can be used to make pot pourri. Gather leaves, flowers, twigs, berries and leave them to dry out in a warm place in the house. Add in wood shavings if you require and place all the plant material into a jar/tin with a seal.
