Poinsettias remain one of the most popular holiday flowers. Besides the traditional red, white and pink, Van Bourgondien Nursery also carries artistic variations of speckled, variegated, ruffled or burgundy. We also have unusually colored hand dyed Poinsettias. One of the most common questions is "How do I care for my poinsettia?".

After you have made your poinsettia selection, make sure it is wrapped properly when leaving the store because exposure to low temperatures even for a few minutes can damage or even kill the poinsettia. This includes leaving the poinsettia in the freezing car while you are shopping! Best to purchase your poinsettias when you are on your way home.

• Place your plant in indirect sunlight for at least six hours per day.

• Provide room temperatures between 68 - 70° F. if you are comfortable, so is your poinsettia.

• Water your plant when the soil feels dry to the touch (evenly moist). Allow the water to drain completely.

• DO NOT leave Poinsettias in your car when you are holiday shopping and make sure they are protected and well wrapped when taking them to your car when you bring them home. DO NOT place plants near cold drafts or excessive heat. Avoid placing plants on heaters, heating ducts or directly in front of or too close to fireplaces.

• DO NOT expose plants to temperatures below 50° F. Poinsettias are very sensitive to cold so DO NOT place them outside during the winter months and avoid placing them near drafty doors or windows.DO NOT over-water your plant, or allow them to sit in water.

Poinsettias are not Poisonous
• The leaves are not very tasty, so it's highly unlikely that kids or even pets would be able to eat enough leaves to kill them which would be a greenhouse full! The most common side effects from eating Poinsettia leaves would be an upset stomach and vomiting.

• All the Poinsettias that we carry are grown locally on Long Island at CJ Van Bourgondien Greenhouses in Peconic.

• CJ Van Bourgondien Greenhouses grow an assortment of annuals through the year and specialize in Poinsettia's for the winter holidays. We encourage everyone to Support Local Growers and Shop at Local Independent Businesses. Help Your Local Economy to not only survive but THRIVE!
