Plant of the Week: Poinsettia
Our favourite Christmas plant, the huge scarlet bracts of poinsettia appearing on the benches of our garden centre are a sure sign that Christmas is just around the corner. These days you don't have to stick to traditional red, either: look out for varieties in pink, burgundy and even greeny-yellow.
It's perfectly possible to keep your poinsettia going from year to year. Give it a warm, bright spot, out of direct sunlight, and water sparingly. Then in April, prune it back hard to 10cm, and in November encourage it to colour up again simply by making sure it has 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness.
Cut back hedges
Now deciduous hedges like beech and hawthorn are dormant, you can cut them back hard if they've outgrown their welcome. Cut the hedge 30cm lower than the height you want to allow for new growth, and consider doing the two sides in alternate years to allow plants to recover.
