Late Fall And Christmas At Oakland Nursery, New Albany

As the holidays draw near, there is still plenty of work to do outside. There is raking to finish, pruning and transplanting to be done, vegetable gardens to mulch for the spring and trees and shrubs to plant. Speaking of planting, Oakland still has great inventory on many trees and shrubs, most at up to 50% off.

But soon the whisper of holidays to-do’s will take over, and there will be boxes to pull out, lights to put up and trimmings to hang. Oakland Nursery is also busy getting ready to provide our loyal customers with all their holiday needs. We have live and fresh cut evergreen trees, greens, wreaths, and our greenhouse is full of poinsettias, custom potted greens arrangements and other holiday greenery.

Be sure to stop in our gift shop for really unique gifts and holiday accents for the home, then stroll next door to Oakland’s Inside Out home store for even more gift ideas.

Like all the Oakland store locations, the New Albany store will feature holiday events and Santa (on weekends) after Thanksgiving. Explore our web page further for details!

PoinsettiaThe queen of holiday indoor plants is the Poinsettia, which has its origins as an unassuming herbaceous plant in Mexico. Through the magic of floriculture breeders, poinsettias are now available in a vast array of colors and habits. Red, of course is the traditional favorite.

When picking a poinsettia, make sure that the plant is well watered and has good color, and that the small yellow flowers in the middle of the bloom are bright and fresh.

Caring for a poinsettia is easy. Protect your plant from cold drafts and keep watered well. Your plant should hold its blooms well past New Year.

Adventurous green thumbs can try their hand at growing the poinsettia through the following year and trying to get it to bloom again next year!
