Plant of the Week: Poinsettia

Plant of the Week: Poinsettia

Firm favourites on every gardener's Christmas wishlist, the brilliantly showy 'petals' on these exotic-looking house plants are in fact bracts (modified leaves) around much smaller central flowers. As well as traditional red, poinsettias now come in over 150 varieties and colours from creamy buttermilk to magenta pink.

Caring for them is straightforward. Find a bright spot out of direct sunlight, and keep them warm - at least 13°C day and night. Water only once the surface of the compost begins to dry out, and sit the plant on a tray of damp gravel to keep humidity high and help those fabulous bracts last even longer. 

Heel in leeks

Harvest some of your leek crop to 'heel in' as close to the house as possible, so it's easy to dig them up even in frosty weather. Dig a trench and pack the leeks in standing upright, then back-fill with soil. They'll be happy like that for some months.
