The holiday's are here and that means decorating with Poinsettias! There are lots of new varieties and colors of this Christmas flower on the market. What's in style?
Also you've heard it said many times that in life, it's all about the details. Christmas decorations are no exception.
Chris Olsen from Botanica Gardens is here to explain.
So what's new in the poinsettia world? There are lots of new varieties and colors of this Christmas flower on the market today. What's in style? This year I went ahead and mixed three colors instead of staying true to just one. Love the look!!! I did a more old-fashion look by mixing pink, red and white poinsettias in clusters of three. I removed the plastic sleeves from each pot and simply dropped each plant into their very own clay pot. Remember to put a plastic saucer in the bottom of each clay pot and to also (for double protection) place the clay pots in a clay saucer as well.
The care of poinsettias is rather simple. Keep moist but not wet, provide plenty of light, and keep away from heat vents. Poinsettias thrive more on neglect then love....:)
You have heard it said many times in life that it is all about the details. Christmas decorations are no exception. Collect and display over time little special Christmas items like a small Santa lamp. A Christmas lamp stacked on some Christmas books looks so inviting. Then fill a bowl with antique ornaments and don't forget to scatter some around the bowl on the table. May be fill a vase or two with an assortment of Christmas ornaments and tuck in the display a poinsettia in a nice white pot. If you jhemajang all these items or alike items, you will have a small Christmas display that speaks volumes.
