The most purchased plant in the country? The poinsettia. The most discarded plant in the country? Yup, also the poinsettia.

This time of the year, as most people are leaning into the festivities of the holiday season, poinsettias are flying off the shelf, but according to the numbers, most of those plants will end up in the garbage before winter is over. But it doesn't need to be that way. Tom Kasper has pointers that will keep the plant healthy and flourishing for years to come.

You can hear Tips for Hardy Gardeners every other Tuesday at 8:20am on Northland Morning.
