Why Buy Locally-Grown Poinsettias?

Payne’s greenhouses are bursting with homegrown poinsettias ready for holiday decorating. For the same reasons it’s important to buy locally grown foods, it’s important to buy locally grown plants. Because Payne’s Poinsettias have been growing right here in Santa Fe since early July, they are acclimated to Santa Fe’s light and climate.

Payne’s Poinsettias are hardier, larger, fuller and will last longer than store bought plants.

WINTER WATERING!

wateringDuring the late Fall and Winter seasons the recommendation on watering is to soak deeply, at least once a month on established plants (those that have been in the ground for a year or more) and 2 times monthly on non-established plants.

Be aware of freezing temperatures! As we mentioned last week, if there is a FREEZE alert, disconnect and drain your hoses and store them in enclosed areas. You can drain your hose by extending it and putting it on a slope or blow through one of the ends.

DO CHRISTMAS CACTUS BLOOM AT CHRISTMAS?
From my experience, Christmas cactus bloom anytime between Halloween and New Year’s. At present, we have a great selection in hanging baskets. We have the standard Scarlet Red, White and Purple. We also have the unusual Yellow plus some baskets with mixed colors.
For those with Christmas cactus at home remember that they need at least 12-14 hours of darkness to encourage bud development. Also keep them on the drier side. They also prefer cooler temperatures, around 50-55 degrees F.   It is recommended that you give you cactus at least 8 to 12 weeks to set bud. If you want blooms for Christmas, get busy following the above.  If they don’t bloom, they may bloom at Easter.

HAPPY GARDENING!
