How to Prepare and Use Poinsettias as Cut Flowers


How to Prepare and Use Poinsettias as Cut Flowers

Every holiday season I get calls asking whether you can use poinsettias as cut flowers. Poinsettias are not grown for commercial cut flower use, but the blooms can be removed from a plant and used like a cut flower.

They look great in contemporary large vases, in holiday centerpieces and tablescapes, and yes, even in a bridal bouquet!

But before you can use a poinsettia bloom as a cut flower, there is one little secret that you need to know. Once you know the secret, you can use cut poinsettias in a variety of ways.

This video shows you what you need to know before using poinsettias in any type of floral arrangement.

Hey, did you learn a lot from the vid? I truly hope you did!

This is Greg, the creator of this website, and I’ve assembled this site to simply share some great floral tips information with my visitors. That’s honestly what I’m doing here. πŸ™‚

With that said, this wasn’t my initial intention…

Okay, before we get started, I think I should cop to something. Truthfully, the actualization of this site was actually a selfish act on my part. You see, I love tips and tricks videos (like the “How to Prepare and Use Poinsettias as Cut Flowers” video you just took a look at), and a cool site where I could house my favorite reference info is really what I was after.

I also believe that opportunities abound online, which is another motivating factor in my decision to make this site public. Why not just be honest, right?

I love sharing great content, and I also enjoy earning sponsorship revenues and affiliate commissions… hopefully, you don’t see anything wrong with that.
