It’s National Poinsettia Day today and I’m delighted to announce the winner of the #UnderThePoinsettiaSpell Instagram Photo Competition!
Many congratulations to Lincolnshire based florist Claire Sutton fromFig & Fern Floral! I loved the composition of Claire’s design and the stunning photography too. A set of Miller Harris candles will making its way to Claire very soon.
Mention Christmas plants and one of the first to spring to mind is often the amaryllis, whose Latin name is Hippeastrum. And it’s aptly this month’s Houseplant of the Month. Available in a range of different colours including red, white, burgundy, pink, peach and orange, this festive flowering plant is so easy to grow from bulb in pots.
In celebration of National Poinsettia Day on December 12th, I’m delighted to announce a new Instagram Photo Competition, #UnderThePoinsettiaSpell!
This festive plant comes in an array of gorgeous colours and looks wonderful as a cut flower arranged in floral designs. Post your images of your creations featuring cut Poinsettias on Instagram with the #UnderThePoinsettiaSpell hashtag and you could be in with a chance of winning a set of Miller Harris candles!
