Question: I noticed poinsettias in a store already. Could you give me some pointers so if I buy a plant early it will last through the holidays? What other flowers can we use to brighten our home during this period?

Answer: There are many possibilities to use flowers and other natural plant materials to add festivity to our homes and offices this time of year. The poinsettia is at the top of the list. I like to have a plant in every room. I always have at least one red one to show off the Christmas colors. Many other colors and combinations are also available including, peppermint bi-colors.
