A visit to Sunshine Nurseries last week was a feast of poinsettias. As far as you can see are stripes of red, white, pink - all the colours and varieties of poinsettias imaginable.
There are three locations for poinsettia trials in North America - Florida, South Carolina and Niagara. This year it is taking place at Linwell Gardens, one of the growers. Last year it took place at Vineland Research Station and there was a great public showing and voting.
There are over 160 varieties on trial this year, and I hope to see them on Monday afternoon when I interview Wayne Brown, the chair of the activity.
