THE CHRISTMAS CACTUS – A SEASONAL SUCCULENT THAT RELIES ON THE WINTER MONTHS TO BLOOM!

Christmas cactus are strong, easy to grow and can thrive for many years. In mild weather they can be kept outside in light shade or very filtered sunlight. They cannot tolerate frost, so be sure to bring them inside before it freezes in the fall. Here are a few interesting facts about these succulents:

  • A Christmas Cactus can live for 20 to 30 years
  • Did you know that plants can help with reducing excessive noise? They have the greatest effect in areas with many large, hard surfaces
  • The botanical name of the Christmas Cactus is Schlumbergera, named after Frédéric Schlumberger (1823-1893)
  • Remove dead flowers regularly. This will stimulate the plant to produce new flower buds. The flowers will bloom for approximately seven days
  • The hanging stems of the Christmas Cactus can become 60 centimeters long

VALERIE’S VIEW from the Greenhouse!

IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE…

…that we are only 5 weeks away from Christmas. Our weather has been unusually warm and many of the annuals like sweet alyssum are still in full bloom.

As I visit many of the retail stores here in our Town, (YES, I still shop in brick and mortar buildings) I see that many have received their poinsettias. These are shipped in, usually from out-of-state and I see only red poinsettias.

You will find Red poinsettias here at Payne’s, but you will also find White, Pink, Orange, Gold and many Bi-colors. Plus they have been growing in our greenhouses since July making them better adjusted to our crazy weather. Come by and see the many selections we have to offer!

HAPPY GARDENING!
