Poinsettia Care

Poinsettias are the most popular plant for the Christmas season.  They are our specialty at Clegg's Nursery!  We have thousands of beautiful home-grown poinsettias; grown fresh in our greenhouses!  Whether it's something unique, such as pink, creamy white, marbled or variegated, or traditional red, there's a variety that will win your heart and accent your home and office!

Poinsettias hold their leaves well throughout the season with proper care.  Poinsettias should be placed in an area where they receive indirect natural light, away from drafts or a heat source.  The water needs of your plant should be checked every day by feeling the soil with your finger.  Water thoroughly whenever the soil begins to feel somewhat dry.  If there is foil around the pot, be sure to punch holes in the foil so the water can drain into a saucer.   Apply enough water to allow the water to drain into the saucer and then discard the excess water.  Never let your poinsettia wilt. 

With a little care and attention, poinsettias will provide a beautiful display in your home and office throughout the Christmas season.
