The poinsettias at D.S. Cole are in full bloom. In an interview with WMUR, the owner, Doug Cole explains more about this seasonal crop that is being cultivated in his greenhouse in Loudon (NH). He starts cultivating the poinsettias in June. The cuttings, around 40,000, are brought in from Costa Rica and Mexico. Other seasonal crops that are grown at D.S. Cole's greenhouse are cyclamen. "Unlike the poinsettias, these are grown from seed, not from cuttings," says Doug. Many poinsettias, their blue painted poinsettias for example, are sold for fund raising projects.
