Christmas rose and poinsettia

JoeXJoeX Posts: 1,327
hi all,

these are are available in my local Morrison’s but will they survive in the autumn/winter garden?

The red of the poinsettia could be a good replacement for my wilting begonias.

Im not allowed plants of any kind in the house, and don’t have green house or cold frame so this is just garden scenario.

Cheers

TP

    The poinsettia won't survive outside I'm afraid,  they are grown as house plants for Christmas. 
    If by Christmas Rose, you mean hellebore,  they are certainly hardy enough to go outdoors. If it's already flowering though, it's probably been forced into flower and going straight outdoors could be a bit of a shock.
