I've solved all the normal clues, have the theme, know what I'm meant to do - but am totally stuck with the last three. Would appreciate help of any kind with these two.
16 A. These hold burning matches left in boxes (9) l?ns
12 D. Sports car's base is tangled up with tree (9) re?s
NB. This is a themed crossword and groups of letters (which are all flowers or plants) are removed from the answers above - that's why the length given doesn't match.The completed cells don't necessarily spell a word - 'wasters' would be entered as 'ws' for example. I've been scouring lists for five-letter words which could be fitted into the answers above, but have got nowhere.
