CHRISTMAS CACTUS HAVE ARRIVED! WE HAVE CACTI!

christmascactusred

christmascactuswhiteThis common house plant blooms during the Christmas season, but its long green arms are attractive throughout the year. With cultivars in a rainbow of colors, it is a plant worthy of appreciation.

The word cactus usually produces images of the desert-such as the saguaro cactus of Arizona with it’s “arms” in the air. In contrast, the Christmas cactus is part of the Zygocacti family and it is a tropical plant that requires very different care than other cacti. They are popular as a Holiday gift plant, and they make excellent house plants when given good air circulation and plenty of bright light (but not direct sun).

WITH EVERY SEASON… TURN, TURN, TURN!  

With the poinsettias all grown and sales of them going strong, we turn to spring. We will be planting the Easter lilies this week and working on our planting schedules for early spring crops. One of my favorite things to do around this time is to sit with a fresh cup of coffee and browse through the many seed catalogs I get daily.

Since Payne’s is a locally owned nursery, we attempt to grow about 80 percent of what we offer. Some of the plants come in as baby seedlings about the size of a sugar cube and others we start from seed.  Because of this, we are able to carry a variety of different plants. I have had customers tell me they find plants here that they remember were growing in their grandmother’s garden. That is a good feeling.

HAPPY GARDENING!
