Always loved to potter in the garden but only really in the last couple of years, have I embraced it by redesigning our space and growing from seed

Euphorbia pulcherrima 'Jadore Pink'

Well! I haven’t lost a single leaf off this one yet! Maybe I’ve finally found how to look after them! 😁😂

Looking good. That's the flower Mr F threw away thinking it was dead. But it definitely had new shoots. I will never know if I could have kept it alive ☹☹☹

I water once a week. But the key is temperature Elaine. Mine is on kitchen table so an ambient temperature, no draughts etc. Tired one in the lounge, too warm. Windowsill too cool. 😁 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

They need complete darkness for 12hours a day to encourage the bracts to form Terri 😊 @terrimclaughlin

So my beautiful plant has almost tripled in size since I managed to save it from last Winter. My challenge now is to get it to change to Pink. 14 hours of total darkness each 24hours, with light and care in between. So I'm going to make a frame that I can cover it with in the greenhouse so it gets its 14 hours. It takes about 4 weeks for the leaves to turn into flower bracts, so let's give it a try! 💕😁#tip #advice #overwinter #greenhouse #wheretheresawilltheresaway

You might remember my #pink #poinsettia from Christmas last year. Well I decided to save it as I loved it. Cut it right back in January and popped in in spare bedroom until April, when I then put it in the greenhouse. Feed and water and I think she's going to be beauty this year too 💕💕

Looking good Hayley! Mine is in its third year now, and I’ve just repotted it again. I was a bit late trimming it back but hopefully will be fine. Trick will be to get he light/dark right later in the year
