Here are some tips for selecting and caring for these festive, botanical decorations.
December is the time to put up Christmas decorations and of course to pick out the perfect Christmas tree!
Poinsettias are also an annual favourite, their showy red and green foliage earning them a valued place among festive decor.
These colourful plants are the perfect compliment to Christmas decorations and will add a dash of colour to any home.
Most retailers have poinsettias stocked and ready for November, with some including Sainsbury's and The Co-operative Food, committed to backing British farmers by selling 100% British-grown poinsettias.
One advantage of buying British is that these plants tend to be healthier because they have travelled a shorter distance before reaching the shop and consequently, their place in your home.
Remember to honour Britain's renowned tradition of horticulture this Christmas by choosing locally-grown poinsettias to support British farmers and your local economy.
Look for the 'Home Grown' logo in order to select excellent quality, British-grown poinsettias.
If you're wondering how to select the best poinsettias and how to keep them healthy throughout the Christmas season, here are a few tips.
