Since it is cold outside, you can prune your plants without causing damage or encouraging new growth. You could prune blue holly and Christmas trees and create a Christmas wreath. Poinsettia plants shouldn’t be brought outside in the cold weather to transport without being covered; when bringing them home, set them in water for an hour, drain, then place in a cool room, this can be done with amaryllis plants too. You can enjoy cutting your own Christmas tree, just be sure to keep it hydrated.
