Decorate with fresh greens, winter is for the birds, gifts for the gardener…
It’s the Christmas season! Decorate with fresh greens, wreaths and garland. Brighten the indoors with Poinsettias, Christmas cactus and Norfolk Island pine. Plant some paperwhite narcissus or Amaryllis. Plant some spring flowering bulbs for forcing putting them in cold dark storage (40 to 45 degrees) for 12 to 16 weeks.
Put a fresh cut on the handle or stump of your fresh cut Christmas tree. Put the tree immediately in water and keep the water fresh and plentiful in the tree stand. Try to locate fresh cut trees away from heat sources in the home.
Don’t forget the birds at this time of the year! They need the feeders to be clean and filled with food. In return they’ll provide color and entertainment for you in the winter landscape.
Remember a gift card from Flowerland makes the perfect Christmas gift for the gardener on your gift list. Merry Christmas!
