Lovely Poinsettia’s………….wonderful article in our paper about the way to “save” your Poinsettias over the year and have them for next Christmas season! DON’T DO IT! Way too much trouble! And not necessary! AND you can never get them to look as good as they do at the nurseries or Wal-Mart!
Let the professionals grow them for you! They buy “buds” in small pots from California growers in August each year. They replant them and get them ready for us the week before Thanksgiving!
Find a good nursery this spring and go back in the fall and get your poinsettia’s from them…………….they need the work, they do a great job and YOU have a perfect plant and also help the economy! WIN! WIN! WIN!
Our weather is almost 6 wks early………..we may have to prune roses in mid January! Yesterday I cut 20 r0se buds from my garden! Just crazy it is! Flowering Quince and Forsythia are also blooming!
Happy Holidays and Happy Gardening………….both are good for your soul!
