Dears, there are so many videos on YouTube about poinsettias. Who knew? Well, someone did. Here’s a great video on how to choose a poinsettia from the store. Did you know those plastic ‘sleeves’ that are often around the plant? I thought they were to protect it, great help when buying. No! Not according to this expert. So now I’m armed with knowledge when I go shopping for a poinsettia– and I’m a die-hard traditionalist: I only want Red.
