I would like to hear what flowers are blooming for the holiday 
season.  What do you have in your garden that blooms for Christmas/New 
Years?  What are in the florists?

Traditional around here of course are poinsettias; and there is a major 
producer of poinsettias, Heartland Growers, just across the fields behind 
our place.

I'm going to venture out into the crowds in a few days and make an informal 
survey of what I else see offered for sale in florists, garden centers, and 

Are there forced bulbs in bud or in bloom right now?

Do they all come from the same growers around the world or are they 

I want to hear about what is out there.
