I have surprisingly been receiving enquiries about the Christmas flower, the Poinsettia. Christmas seems such such a long way off whichis why it came as a surprise to me but the real reason in both cases is because our Daily Bulletin reader wanted to share with us her delight in still having a healthy Poinsettia from last Christmas. Her only disappointment is that although the plant has produced masses of new leaves resulting in a much larger plant than before, it has no red leaves. Here is where I can congratulate her in keeping the Poinsettia alive and assure her that all is well, those red leaves will come although she will have to help them along a little. The red leaves are actually known as bracts and come along with special nurturing as from about October time, lets say in just a month.
