    Any of you guys sell poinsettia's during christmas time?

    It is the #1 selling plant in the USA every year. They sell like hot cakes down here. Thinking about starting to sell them.

    We grow thousands of them (around 26 I think). Sell wholesale but mainly retail ... It's a beautiful sight in the greenhouses this time of year ... I'll take some pics tomorrow for you. Do a search on the poinsettia ... there is a little bit of info from last year.
    Here is a pic from last year.
    First true Burgandy-Purple poinsettia..named "Plum Pudding

    I'm looking closely at that basket of evergreens with the bright pink poinsettia----is that my name on the tag?:D

    I'd love to see how its put together. I would think that walking through that house would lift everyone's spirit regardless of how dark and short the day might be.

    Thanks for sharing.
