Gardener Extras

  1. SCHLUMBERGERA (holiday cactus) are epiphytes, native to rainforests. They prefer to be root-bound. Cuttings are simple to root, thereby making them a stellar pass-along plant.
  2. Avoid placing poinsettias in direct sunlight, as it can damage the leaves.
  3. Plant paperwhites in groups of 5-7 bulbs, as it will look better balanced.
