Poinsettias are vibrant plants with brightly coloured bracts. They are often brought as Christmas gifts then disposed of once they fade, but can be kept and brought back to life next year.
Houseplants are the perfect gift for anyone and especially at Christmas time. They brighten up the home, improve the air quality and are easy to care for with the minimum of fuss.
Winter should not put you off enjoying the beauty of plants. Bring the outdoors in with a floral winter centrepiece. You can buy ready made displays or get creative and combine your favourite winter bloomers in a decorative container
There is still plenty to do in the December garden and as we approach the shortest day of the year, the weather can be quite crisp and chilly. Time to wrap up warm and prepare to prune and prep the garden for next Spring.
