To keep your tree looking fresh through the holidays, treat it like you would any cut flower. Make sure your stand will hold plenty of water, and never let it run out of water.

Safety First!

Keep your tree away from vents, fireplaces, radiators, or other heating sources. These spots can cause your tree to dry out and catch fire.

Never use lights that have broken bulbs or fraying wires, and turn them off before you go to bed or leave the house. Don’t overload your electric circuits.

Live wreaths and garland are also available. Mixed greenery wreath sizes range from 14″ to 28″ in diameter. Fraser fir wreath sizes range from 14″ to 34″ in diameter. Ask our Custom Decor team about decorating your live wreath or designing a faux one!

Keep your wreath and garland out of direct sunlight and mist them throughout the season to prolong its life.

Poinsettias

This Central America native is a Christmas classic! The actual flowers of the plant are the tiny yellow centers surrounded by modified leaves called bracts that come in a variety of colors and variegations.

It is difficult, but not impossible, to keep a poinsettia happy past the holidays. Middle Tennessee gets too cold for them, so you’ll need to treat yours as a houseplant if you want to keep it! To prolong its blooming, try to mimic its natural conditions as best you can.

  • Mature Growth

    2′ tall

  • Sun Requirements

    Bright, direct light. The more light it gets, the better – the color on its bracts won’t be as vibrant without it.

  • Water Requirements

    Water when the soil is dry to the touch, but don’t let it sit in standing water. If you notice that your poinsettia is wilting, it’s time to water.

  • Temperature & Humidity

    Poinsettias do not like to be cold at all. Keep yours in a spot where it stays at least 65° and 75° and there’s no draft. Don’t even let its leaves touch a cold window. They also prefer higher humidity. You may need to mist yours daily, place it on a humidity tray of pebbles, or place it near a humidifier.

January – March
Continue to water when the soil is dry.
April
Gradually decrease your waterings and allow the soil to stay dry longer between waterings. Don’t let the stems start to shrivel, though. After a week or two, once it has acclimated to being dryer, move it to a spot that stays about 60°.
May
Cut the stems to about 4″ tall and repot in a slightly larger pot with a well-draining potting mix. Water when the soil is dry to the touch. When new growth begins to appear, begin to fertilize according to the fertilizer’s directions. We recommend Espoma Organic Plant-tone.
June
Move it outside now that it’s hot!
July
Early in the month, pinch back the stems by about 1″ to encourage well-branching growth. Otherwise. the plant will get leggy.
August
Bring it back inside to the sunniest spot. Prune the stems to leave 3 or 4 leaves on each one.
September
Continue watering and fertilizing according to the fertilizer’s directions.
October
Keep your poinsettia in complete darkness from 5:00 to 8:00. During the rest of the day, move it back to the sunny spot and continue to water and fertilize. Poinsettias are short-day plants, and this process will help them rebloom correctly.
November
Stop moving it into the dark. You should start seeing flower buds.
December
Stop fertilizing mid-month. Continue to water. Enjoy your new blooms!
