Home Living : December 8th 2009
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, December 8, 2009 5 Shades of pink HOMELIVING In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates Potted poinsettias in their traditional yuletide red have become popular Christmas decorations, but a new poinsettiaavailable this yearis revolutionising the scene. Instead of the familiar red, princettia comes in shades of pink. But whatreally makes these new plants stand out is that, instead of one or two flowers, they have multiple branches topped with blooms. This means that each princettia pot looks as if it's filled with a pink bouquet. Princettia cangooncreating a show for many weeks because the bracts that provide the colour are not true flowers -- they're much tougher and longer-lasting than mere petals. Keep potted princettia indoors in a well- lit position (out of direct sun), water when the mix feels dry and feed after the show is over. If you can, then take it outside into a sunny, frost-free spot. There's every chance your princettia will flower again, but next time it will be in autumn or early winter, which is the normal blooming season for poinsettias. Poinsettia plants that are grown for Christmas are tricked into flowering by manipulating light levels in the nursery glasshouse. With its compact growth and abundant flowering, princettia makes an ideal living Christmas gift. And it gives in another way, too, because, for every plant sold, 50c goes to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. yates.com.au ALL AREAS 9838 9090 FREE MEASURE & QUOTE Lifetime Warranty www.justforyouwardrobes.com.au DESIGNED TO SUIT YOUR BUDGET Timber Coloured panel Painted Mirrored Sliding p Hinged Built-inWardrobe SPECIALISTS JUST FOR YOU WARDROBES PTY LTD Y Lic. 185684C 2168578K wk5 ABC UNITED KITCHEN 2118862i hlf wk17 from $5880 Showroom Unit C2 27-29 Fariola St, Silverwater Ph: 9648 5368 Mob: 0414 790 168 Polyurethane Kitchen includes 40mm Stone Bench Top, Delivery & Installation PRE-CHRISTMAS SALE Best Wholesale Prices Trade & Builders Only 2202049i hlc wk23 Specialising in: Roller Blinds, Plantation Shutters, Aluminium Shutters & Blinds, Venetian Blinds, Roman Blinds, Panel Glide Blinds.
