You go to a lot of trouble to make sure that your home is bright and welcoming during December. Part of that is adding plants and greenery as part of your holiday decor.
There’s nothing brighter and more quintessentially a Christmas plant than Pointsettia. Keeping it looking good – or even keeping it going so that it’s alive and well for the following year takes a little attention.
First of all, make sure that you don’t forget to water them frequently, but, whatever you do, don’t allow the pot to stand in water. Remove the tray underneath so the pot can fully drain. Pointsettias come from warmer, dryer climates so they like to be warm and dry – cold feet aren’t good for them! Make sure they get plenty of light. They especially like sunlight.
Evergreen Christmas wreaths and garlands. When you purchase the ‘fixings’ to make your Christmas wreath and garlands, choose the freshest possible. Soak them in water overnight before you make them up. This helps them to absorb moisture and stay fresher longer. You can also gently mist them every few days to maintain them even longer.
Amaryllis makes a delightful show at this time of year and they’re popular as hostess gifts too! Because they’re bulbs you can enjoy them for years to come with just a little care. Water sparingly – perhaps every 3 to 7 days. Don’t let them get too cold. If they freeze they will die. When the blooms fade, cut them off to encourage reblooming. Keep them in a pot as they prefer this to being planted in the ground.

Most greens can last approximately one week indoors without water but they will last throughout the Christmas holidays if they are kept outside.
