Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Disappointed that your Christmas cactus blooms at Thanksgiving? It may be on schedule! There are, in fact, "Thanksgiving" cactuses that are closely related to the Christmas variety. Examine the stems of your plant closely. Thanksgiving cactus has sharply pointed teeth on the segments, whereas the Christmas types have more rounded, or scalloped, stem segments.
