Poinsettias originally come from Mexico but their fabulous warm red colours are a traditional part of Christmas festivities. These are carefully grown locally to us in Sussex, and as a result are lovely strong and healthy plants. Poinsettia plants make great seasonal gifts or why not treat yourself? It is Christmas after all!.
Current Description
These strong Poinsettias are grown just up the road from us in Sussex and they are looking stunning - lovely, bushy plants with a minimum of 6 full heads, just as pictured. Looking for more unusual colours? We do also have pink and white poinsettias available from the main Christmas page.

Note: Poinsettias are sensitive to low temperatures and so we add extra packaging to protect them from the cold whilst in transit. However, we strongly recommend selecting a delivery date from Tuesday to Saturday so your beautiful poinsettia can be delivered to its warm home as quickly as possible to prevent damage in transit.

A good sized, healthy plant arrived well packaged. The plant is doing well over a month later and I'm delighted to relive the scent of my tropical childhood.

Always nice quality plants and always delivered on time. Once again I ordered two plants for our parents. Sadly the plant of my mother-in-law was broken, one stem was completely off however, this could be from the delivery company and not Plants4Presents

Poinsettias originally come from Mexico, but their rich coloured bracts and winter flowering make them a very popular festive plant in the UK. Your Poinsettia will flower for many weeks if you follow a few basic rules.

These Sussex grown poinsettias are stronger than the imported plants you often see in shops but they are still quite tender and don’t like being too hot or cold. Keep them away from the glass if next to a window, away from a radiator and away from cold draughts.

Your plant will need regular watering. Water the soil putting through half a litre of water and allow the excess to drain away. Alternatively stand the whole pot in water for 20 mins, then let any excess water drain before placing it back into its pot cover. The top of the soil should seem only slightly damp when you touch it – not soggy.

Most people treat their poinsettias as annuals and throw them out after the festive season. However, they can be grown through summer and made to reflower, but this does require some very specific and tricky to accomplish light requirements for months leading up to Christmas.

If you want to keep your plant going for next Christmas, rest the plant, decrease the watering and prune off all of the red bracts back to only green leaves. In late spring repot into a larger pot. Make sure the soil mass is moistened and place in a sunny window, or in a conservatory. You will need to pinch out the growing shoots to encourage branching and feed and water regularly. If you can keep your plant looking healthy until next autumn, then you can start the process of leaving it in a dark spot with no light for several hours a day to bring on flowering.

Problem solving:

The most common problems with poinsettias are caused by cold which will lead to shrivelling of the coloured leaves – they must always be kept above 10C. Poinsettias are from a desert country so be careful not to overwater and if your plant does get a little too wet you will need to let the soil dry out before re-establishing the normal routine. If the leaves start to droop, then it is likely it is thirsty and a quick drink will usually perk it back up.
