Native to Mexico, these beautiful plants hate cold and draughts, here at Thirsk Garden Centre we carefully protect your poinsettia until you get it home. But how should you care for your poinsettia once you get it home to keep it going for many weeks?
- Position somewhere light and warm - away from draughts (don't leave on a windowsill after you've drawn the curtains) and from direct heat like radiators and fires
- Maintain humidity by standing in wet gravel, avoid watering the red bracts and leaves, and use room temperature water
- Placing a drip-feeder in the compost will help keep your plant healthy
