Plants look after us if we look after them
Most familiar plants are known for either their green foliage or their colourful flowers. The poinsettia, also known as the Christmas star, is different. In winter, it proudly displays spectacular coloured leaves, banishing our blues and getting us in the festive spirit. Grower of this product: J. & P. Ten Have.
- Make sure that the plant is wrapped up warm in order to make the journey from the shop to your house. Wrap the poinsettia in paper, or tuck it under your coat.
- Place the poinsettia in the light, but not in bright sunlight.
- Avoid draughts and very warm locations near a source of heat.
- A flowering poinsettia likes damp soil.
- Some plant food every 2 to 3 weeks will keep your plant in peak form.
- Wash your hands if plant sap gets on them: the sap can irritate your skin.
