Paraic’s Plant Of The Month: December 2017.

“The poinsettia is a beautiful indoor plant with fabulous red bracts producing a beautiful show of colour from early December through Christmas and the New Year. “Paraic Horkan

The Poinsettia is a beautiful indoor plant with eye-catching red and green foliage. Originating in Mexico, it derives its name from Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first United States Minister to Mexico, who introduced the plant to the US in 1825. Since then, it has spread as a popular indoor plant throughout the world, particularly at Christmas where it is a welcome addition to any floral display.

Top Tips:

Poinsettias need warmth, place in a warm, centrally-heated location.

Poinsettias need light, place in a bright area.

Poinsettias need water, use lukewarm water and water the plant from the base. Always allow the soil to dry out before re-watering.

Note: Although a Poinsettia plant is generally a one year plant, our customers report having the plant for many years.
Simply put, no home is complete at Christmas without the beautiful Poinsettia as decoration!
