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 minimise damage in transit.
Beautiful condition, generous in size and on-time delivery.

These instructions are sent with the plant gift
Your Poinsettia will flower for many weeks if you follow a few basic rules. Just remember they come from Mexico - and are built for hot days and warm nights.
The leaves and bracts are quite tender, and can be damaged by cold draughts, or too much heat. If they are near a window, don't let them get too close to the glass and try to keep them a distance from any radiators.
Whilst the plant is in a small pot it will need regular watering - don't let it dry out completely. Water from the top and let the excess drain away, or stand the whole pot in water for 20mins. Remember this is a plant from a desert country so be careful not to overwater. 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 once the festive season is over. However with a little care your Poinsettia will flower again next year.
If you want to keep your plant going for next Christmas, after flowering, give the plant a rest. You can decrease the water and let the bracts drop. In summer 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 keep the plant growing actively all summer by regular watering and feeding every two weeks with a complete soluble fertilizer. If you can keep your plant looking healthy until next autumn it should provide you with a beautiful show again in time for next Christmas.

"Flowers are actually bracts and they come in all shades of red
