Poinsettia Update and Information: Well, we have almost completely sold out for the 2011 Holiday Poinsettia season. Thanks to all our Fundraiser Partners! There are still some 8″ red and a few colors out there in every size but quantities are very limited.
How do I store my poinsettias before distribution? I have received several calls about poinsettia care lately and thought I’d post some helpful information. When you receive your poinsettias you need to unbox them and unsleeve them so they can breathe. Check the soil. If the soil is dry you need to water them. If the soil is moist, they can be left alone for the time being. It’s very important not to over water a holiday poinsettia. Also, if it is necessary to store the poinsettias in a facility over the weekend, make sure the temperature doesn’t go below 68 degrees. Interestingly enough, Holiday Poinsettias are native to Mexico and don’t like the cold!
Mum Update 9-14-11: We experienced a heat delay on the mums with the record heat we had this summer. The heat delays the blooming of the mums. We expect to be 1-2 weeks later having color on our mums this fall. Please contact your sales rep if you have any questions regarding this.
Now is the time to get your order in for our fall mum fundraisers and winter poinsettia fundraisers. Order early. Quantities are limited.
