Holidays are not too far away- as anyone visiting the stores is aware ( Christmas music, anyone?). When writing you have to prepare ahead of time, so I wrote a page on Christmas plants– just short entries and quicklist growing info. And I have been getting the Christmas page in order for the season.
Anybody have any Christmas plant favorites?
I usually get a large poinsettia, varied greens to decorate, and a Rosemary tree (which I kill every year, but now have new care tips to try and follow). In years past there are times I couldn’t resist the beautiful cyclamens- I just love those. I had varied results with keeping them, but family demands sometimes meant that the houseplants got neglected. Plus my water seems really bad for plants. I picked up a tip to add vinegar to the high pH water- so I’ll try that.

I like rosemary for Christmas, but don’t usually buy indoor plants. I work too hard on the outside plants:)
That is a good tip to add a bit of vinegar. It would make sense, but I think I would check the ph to find out just how much to add before using the water. Don’t want a bunch of plants on acid now.
LOL! I guess it would be easy to use those little test strips that are made for hot tubs… after awhile you would have an approximate idea of the water:vinegar.
