Yearly during the month of November, it has been a tradition for my mother to buy Poinsettias to decorate our home with. It lights up the house and makes it look more festive. It makes us feel that indeed, it’s nearly Christmas.
Poinsettias are the most popular flower during the holidays because of it’s red and green foliage.
So where do we buy our Poinsettias? Well, we buy pots of them at the Manila Seedling Bank Foundation.
It is located at Quezon Avenue Extention Corner E. DeLos Santos Avenue, EDSA Quezon City. They were initially just a company that is in charge with seedling production but grew into this large foundation with diversified operations dealing mainly with the greening of the environment.
A pot of Poinsettia costs around ₱200 – ₱300 depending on which seller you’ll buy from and how big the plant is.
Aside from Poinsettias, they also sell different kinds of plants, flowers, herbs, fertilizers, soils and pots –basically everything that you need in your garden.
This is where I bought the herbs that died in my hand..huhuhu.
I hope I gather enough courage to start an herb garden again..
