A local florist is offering some tips for those that would like to keep their poinsettias alive until next Christmas. The owner of Wolf Floral in Washington, Laura Bombei says the plant doesn’t like the cold, so keep them away from drafty areas. They also need direct sunlight and should be watered a few times a week. She adds some people will choose to transplant them into their gardens, and advises to make sure the spot you choose has a good mix of sun and shade.
