What do I do with my Poinsettia NOW?

Poinsettia 2

Many of us struggle with what to do with our holiday Poinsettias after the holidays are over. They are still alive, but what happens next? We have heard that bringing them back to their former glory next year is really hard, but we hate to throw them away…

Dr. Leonard Perry, of the University of Vermont, has written a great how-to guide, which I will share with you here. In it, he uses holidays and well known dates as markers for when to do things, and explains in simple terms how they need to be done. We tried it a couple of years ago and it worked like a charm.

So now you know, too!

Until 2019… Happy New Year!

    1. That is what most do with them. I prefer to not even get them into my home. I just hate to discard them after they put so much work into providing so much color. There a few at work that I do not know what to do with.
