Poinsettia tips

Posted on by

first_imgBy Bodie V. PennisiUniversity of GeorgiaIf you’re going to decorate your home for the holidays, you just have to include at least one poinsettia in your plans. No other flower conveys the holiday spirit quite like a traditional red poinsettia.Getting the most from your poinsettias is easy if you follow these tips: Buy Georgia-grown poinsettias. Locally grown plants may cost more, but they have better keeping quality. They’re usually sold to florist shops and garden centers.Choose a size that will match your decorative needs. Georgia growers are experts in producing more than 20 poinsettia varieties in a dozen sizes and shapes, including some gorgeous 18-inch hanging baskets and 3-gallon floor planters.Besides the traditional red, other colors are available: strong white, creamy white, light pink, solid pink, bright orange-red and deep purple-red. Some varieties feature attractive speckled and marbled bracts.Select plants with fully colored and expanded bracts (the colored parts of the plant — the actual flowers are the yellow centers). Avoid plants with too much green around the bract edges — this is a sign that the plant was shipped before it was mature enough.Select poinsettias with dense, rich green leaves all along the stem, well branched and proportioned with the container about two-and-one-half times the height of the pot.Look closely for possible “hitchhikers.” One common poinsettia pest is the silverleaf whitefly, which inhabits the underside of the leaves and sucks the juices and sap from the plant. This is the giveaway: when whiteflies excrete the plant’s juices, they drop a “honeydew” onto the leaves below. Don’t buy plants with sticky leaves and dots on the undersides of the leaves that look like scale — they’re actually the whitefly nymphs.Don’t forget to examine the plant’s roots. Carefully slip off the pot and look for white and light tan roots that have grown to the sides of the pot. Brown roots or few roots may be signs of disease.Don’t buy a plant with weak stems, few bracts or any signs of wilting, breaking or drooping. Often in stores, poinsettias are crowded. Sometimes they’re displayed in paper, plastic or mesh sleeves. A poinsettia needs space, and the longer it remains sleeved, the faster its quality will deteriorate.When transporting your prize poinsettia, protect it from chilling winds and temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. You can place the poinsettia into a sleeve or a large shopping bag.Once in your home, you can put your poinsettias anywhere you like. They’ll last about three weeks in fairly dark places. Don’t place them near cold drafts or excessive heat, though, or near appliances, fireplaces or ventilating ducts.Water it only when the soil feels dry to the touch, but don’t let it wilt, or the leaves may drop off. Overwatering is one of the common causes of plant loss. Don’t leave the plant in standing water — this, too, may cause its leaves to drop. Always remove a plant from any decorative container before watering, and allow the water to drain completely.Don’t fertilize your plant during the blooming season. This will cause a rapid decline of plant quality.If you want to keep your poinsettia after the holiday season is over, move it to a bright spot — either a south, east or west window. Eventually, the bracts will start to fall off. By early April, cut the plant back, leaving four to six nodes or segments in the stem. At this point, you can grow it outdoors in full sun. Fertilize it weekly with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer at the same rate you give to houseplants.Trim the poinsettia in June. Plant it in a 1-gallon pot or a large indoor planter. Trim new growth again around July 1 and again by mid-August. Continue to fertilize throughout spring and summer, applying nutrition once every two to three weeks as fall nears. When grown with adequate water and nutrition, poinsettias can grow as high as 5 feet.Poinsettias are proven to be nonpoisonous and safe for display around children and pets.last_img read more

Broome County no longer in yellow zone, local business owners react

Posted on by

first_imgBROOME COUNTY (WBNG) — Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement that Broome County is no longer in a yellow zone focus area for the coronavirus as of yesterday. “It’s kind of discouraging for some folks. They come in with a party of five or six and they want to sit down together, and with restrictions, ‘sorry, we can’t’. We have to put you at separate tables. Some folks are cool with that, and others understandably want to be together as a family. So they look for other places to eat,” Miller said. During yellow zone restrictions, restaurants were capping group seating limits to 4 guests per table. Area business owners said they have seen an increase in customers as the yellow zone restrictions were lifted. Governor Cuomo said the amount of new cases in the county has slowed down as residents followed the guidelines given out by the state. Jared Miller, owner of Tony’s Italian Grill in Endicott spoke to 12 News about how lifting the restrictions is helpful to small businesses. Across New York yesterday the reported rate of positive coronavirus tests was 3.1%. Broome County Executive Jason Garnar also weighed in on the subject, thanking Broome County residents for doing their part. Miller said with the yellow zone restrictions gone, restaurants will be able to seat up to 10 guests together at a table. Source: Jason Garnar Twitter Garnar also urges residents to continue to be smart to prevent yellow zone restrictions from returning.last_img read more

Singaporean sovereign investor buys stake in Rothesay Life

Posted on by

first_imgTay Lim Hock, president of GIC Special Investments, expressed confidence in the current Rothesay management team.“We also believe in the long-term potential of the expanding market for pension insurance buyouts and buy-ins,” he added.MassMutual CIO M Timothy Corbett said the investment was compatible with its search for long-term returns.“Demand for risk management from UK defined benefit pension schemes offers significant growth opportunities, and our ongoing investment in Rothesay Life supports our view the company is well-positioned to capitalise on this opportunity,” he said.The parties did not disclose a price for the transaction, which is subject to approval from regulators, including the UK’s Prudential Regulation Authority.Rothesay has written almost £1.4bn in business this year, agreeing buy-ins with Philips and aerospace firm Cobham, as well as a buyout with the UK branch of Intercontinental Hotels.The firm, established in 2007, expanded its hold on the pension insurance market in 2010 by acquiring rival Paternoster. Singaporean sovereign wealth fund GIC is to acquire a 28.5% stake in UK pension insurer Rothesay Life, months after Goldman Sachs confirmed it was looking to sell part of the wholly owned subsidiary.In addition to GIC, funds managed by Blackstone will also buy 28.5% of shares, and Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance will acquire 7%, leaving Goldman as the largest shareholder, with a 36% stake.Chief executive Addy Loudiadis said she was delighted three “substantial” investors had been attracted to the company.“With over £12bn (€14.1bn) of accumulated liabilities, we have now successfully diversified our shareholder base as the next step in our journey,” she said.last_img read more

Japanese snow shortage puts Tokyo 2020 heat prevention plan at risk

Posted on by

first_img “I don’t ever recall experiencing a no-snow winter like this one,” said Mutsumi Seki, a Minamiuonuma city employee who is in charge of the snow storage facility, to Kyodo News. “We welcome any amount of snow, but we don’t need any more rain.” Heat is a major concern for Tokyo 2020 officials as more than 50 deaths were recorded in Japan because of rising temperatures in July last year. The Olympic Games are scheduled for between July 24 and August 9. Other heat prevention measures which will be used include cooling mist sprays and shading tents. Fans could be allowed to bring their own bottled water into venues under certain conditions, which is normally against the rules. Snow machines have already been trialled at Tokyo 2020 test events. The fears over the heat have prompted organisers to controversially switch the marathons and race walking to Sapporo, more than 800 kilometres to the north of Tokyo. Read Also:Nigeria’s Para power-lifter vows to set Olympic record in Japan Other events have been given earlier start times. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Plans to use snow to keep fans cool at Tokyo 2020 are under threat due to a shortage of supplies. Organisers had intended to use both real and fake snow as part of their efforts to combat the expected high temperatures in the Japanese capital. It was hoped that snow would be transported from the Minamiuonuma ski resort in Japan’s central Niigata Prefecture but there has been a record shortage. Milder temperatures mean that Japan has witnessed its “worst snow season in decades”, Kyodo News reported. A snow storage facility at Minamiuonuma can hold up to 1,600 tonnes of snow but is said to contain only a few centimetres. More than 100 tonnes is thought to be required to make the Tokyo 2020 plan viable, the same as 10 large trucks. Snow was going to be taken to the capital by rail and road and then stored at the Games in tents. “Personal snow packs” could then be handed out to fans at venues. The shortage has severely impacted resorts which have been hit by a decline in visitor numbers. Large amounts of snow are not expected “any time soon”, with the annual Minami Uonuma Snow Festival among the events cancelled.center_img Loading…last_img read more
