This 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).

We started with a little over 3,000 pots of Poinsettias. The greenhouses at both locations were bursting with color and now they are almost empty but we still have a good selection of Poinsettias for our loyal customers. Just a few large orders left, waiting to get wrapped and ready for delivery.
We are a locally owned nursery and one of the few nurseries that grow their own poinsettias. We have a huge following. Many of the churches in Northern New Mexico know that they can place their orders for poinsettias and not worry about tending to them until they are delivered to their door or they make the trip from Chama, Los Ojos, Las Vegas. Etc. to pick them up.
We are now busy with our Easter lily crop and getting the greenhouse ready for spring production. The cycle does not end. Thank you all for supporting a local business.

Last week, the Garden Guru mentioned that most people don’t think about going to a nursery to buy a Christmas tree! Payne’s Nursery has been selling Christmas trees for many years! Of course, Payne’s sells live trees that you can plant in your yard later -and that’s becoming a more and more popular tradition.
Lynn said that what he recommends is that you dig your hole earlier in the season so that when winter comes and the ground is frozen hard and there is snow on top of it, you have at least already dug your hole… and of course refill it with the loosened soil, so it doesn’t pose a hazard! It is then easily excavated again for your Christmas tree after your are done with it indoors. Payne’s recommends that you keep your live Christmas tree indoors for a maximum of 5 days — listen to the Garden Guru’s tip to find out why?
Tune in every Friday on KHFM Radio (95.5 FM) between 4 and 5 pm you’ll hear Lynn Payne’s tip of the week. The “Garden Guru” himself provides information on different topics including gardening tips, fun facts about plants, how to plant and prepare your garden for each season and special announcements.
