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

Yes Sam, never managed to keep one before, but have done my homework this time! So hoping to be able to cut down in spring and see if I can't get it to flower next Christmas. I know they need complete darkness so there's a test!! 😊 @icedance

Good luck Hayley I my tutor at college told us about the production of these once, don't remember all the ins and outs but do recall feeling sorry for the poor Poinsettia

Has everyone else still got there's? How are they fairing? Since I moved mine into the lounge it seems much happier, virtually no leaf dropping. Out of drafts and temperature fluctuations seems to suit her better ❤️

I've moved them and they haven't dropped any leaves in the last couple of days so will see if it's a better place for them 😊

I've learned they don't like temperature change so hence the lounge! 😃 @daisy-jane

I moved mine to the same place you have hayley on the side of the fireplace,they seem to have stopped dropping leaves but think it could be to late for one of them

Just cut down on watering, only when feeling dry touch, make sure it's not sitting in any water too as they don't like wet feet 😂😂😃 @daisy-jane
