EUGENE, Ore. -- It takes a long time to grow Poinsettias for the holiday season, and Johnson Brothers Garden Market is getting the process started.

Poinsettias are planted in July and August and are misted every two hours for the first two week when the plant roots into the container. They must be kept in 60-65 degree temperatures at all times.

Poinsettias need a lot of fertilizer to help form their beautiful blooms. They need to be inspected weekly for insects, diease, and measured for growth to make sure they're the right size.
