North Carolina family grows over 12,000 poinsettias for the holidays

Jim Mitchell, the owner of Mitchell's Nursery & Greenhouse in King, has been growing poinsettias for about 25 years with his wife and son. He started planting them in August to have them ready for this holiday season, and now, he says, it is all about maintenance. He has a whole greenhouse full of poinsettias. "Ninety-six different varieties of poinsettias and a little over 12,000 plants," Mitchell said, which is a dream for people who love poinsettias, especially around the holiday season.

Mitchell decorates the pot with wrapping paper and a bow for customers to help make it the perfect gift. "The dressing up of it is the kind of like putting stuff up around the house," Mitchell explained.

The nursery has so many different kinds of poinsettias that they are asking customers to vote on the best one, and you can cast your vote by stopping by the greenhouse this weekend.
