DECK’d our shelves out with Christmas tree & boughs, ….. falalalalalaaa

Amaryllis come in a variety of colours. They prefer bright to medium light and require very little water in the beginning and more as they grow bigger. The bulb can be replanted year after year with proper storage.
 
Poinsettias are brilliant once again this year – numerous sizes and prices, and some new colors.  Keep Moist and away from cold and drafts. Likes sunlight – native to Mexico.  Keep out of reach of house pets and young children – as poinsettia's toxicity is relatively mild.
 
Succulents & Cacti  come in and select from many different varieties; sizes, shapes, flowers and textures.  Do not over water - likes sunlight and warmth .
 
Holly have simple, alternate glossy leaves, frequently with a spiny leaf margin. The inconspicuous flower is greenish white, with four petals.  The small fruits often referred to as berries  range in color from red to brown to black, and rarely green or yellow.  The fruits ripen in winter and thus provide winter colour contrast between the bright red of the fruits and the glossy green evergreen leaves. Hence the cut branches, are widely used in Christmas decoration. The fruits are generally slightly toxic to humans and pets.

Forcing INDOOR Bulbs  With a little planning and preparation, you’ll be enjoying freshly bloomed paperwhites, amaryllis, and hyacinth during the winter freeze!   ‘Forcing’ a bulb essentially means coaxing it into producing a shoot, stem and flower outside of its regular environment and schedule. It’s also easier than you might think.  
 
Indoor centerpieces for the Holidays consist of a short vase with an oasis block, using different colours and textures of short branches of greeneries;  add any type of addition natural woodsy item like pinecones, red berries, blue berries,  candle, dogwood or willow branches etc,  

Outdoor Winter / Christmas outdoor containers similar to an indoor centerpiece only on a much bigger scale of greenery branches used and bigger dramatic or natural décor like birch poles or driftwood or a lantern will add even more eye appeal.  Sparkly branches, glittery pine cone along with Bows when added to your Outdoor or indoor planter can give it more holiday feel ….
