Poinsettias now in bloom

NANAIMO – VIU students learn greenhouse production lessons.

Holiday poinsettias grown by students in Vancouver Island University’s horticulture program will soon be ready at VIU’s G.R. Paine Horticulture Training Centre, located at 2324 East Wellington Rd. The centre is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday for poinsettia purchase and pickup from Dec. 1-11.

Students have been cultivating more than 1,000 poinsettias, which are offered in four colours: classic red, burgundy, coral red, and white. The plants, $9 each, including tax, come in six-inch pots and are colourfully wrapped and sleeved. They are grown pesticide-free.

Poinsettias can be reserved by calling Anne Kivari at 250-754-8756, or by e-mail at anne.kivari@viu.ca.
