Winter brings many things - the holidays, delicious meals, beautiful snow. It can also be rather dreary for gardeners. But take heart - we can still watch flowers bloom...indoors!
In this presentation, participants will learn how to get houseplants to bloom through winter, beginning with popular flowering plants such as Phalaenopsis orchids, peace lilies, and anthuriums, plus some unusual and intriguing bloomers. The presenter will also cover classic holiday plants like Christmas cactus, poinsettias, amaryllis, and cyclamen.
She will explore how light, water, temperature, and fertilizers contribute to the indoor success of flowering plants, and learn what each of these beautiful plants needs to thrive and re-flower.
