Horticulturist and director of Easy Garden Irrigation, Sean Ladd, previously stated that poinsettia fans should look for plants displayed indoors.
He continued: “When buying one, you should look at those stored indoors, because when displayed outside under 13C, they are more likely to be on their way out before being brought back home.
“Even a quick walk between the shop and the car when it’s cold outside can be enough to damage it
“Once it’s at home, remember to avoid drafts and radiators. Water when the top layer of soil is dry and don’t let it dry out completely. They also like plenty of daylight.
