THE CHRISTMAS FLOWER
Quintessentially festive, Poinsettia’s are a firm favourite to brighten up your home this Christmas. Also known as the Christmas Star or Christmas Flower, it is said that this winter flower’s association with Christmas comes from a Mexican legend.
With proper care, your Poinsettia can last long past the festive season. Here are a few tips to keep your Poinsettia looking healthy!
1. Don’t over-water. Overwatering can quickly lead to waterlogging, which can cause root rot.
2. Avoid cold drafts. Poinsettias need warmth and light so keep close to a radiator but away from any draughty areas.
3. Place in indirect sunlight. Sufficient light is needed for the plant to grow and thrive so are best placed by a south-facing window.
