    I keep my Christmas poinsettias in the house all winter and in the spring plant them in my garden. They become a thick, beautiful green shrub all summer long. Sadly the first hard frost kills them.

    I buy 2 or 3 small poinsettias and after the holidays put them in my frosted bathroom window and plant them outside in April. They make beautiful plants in my garden and if I catch them in time (before 1st frost) I bring them in for the next season.

    Poinsettias can be overwintered here in the North from year to year for lasting blooms so there’s no need to repurchase every year if you make the effort. As for toxicity, it’s far from the only indoor plant that is so, Easter lilies and many others are also toxic. It’s up to a responsible owner to ensure the plant is out of reach of children, pets, as well as outdoor and farm animals. Just like predators can not be blamed for their natural instincts, your free range chickens actually need to be protected from them by an informed consciencious owner

    I think more people need to know that these beauties shouldn't be tossed at the end of the xmas season, because they can last for years like any other plant. am I the only one who just learned that in the past couple of years?!
