Horticulturists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach have advice on disposing of real Christmas trees and options for poinsettias after the holidays.
Celebrating the efforts of American agriculture and reminding citizens that agriculture is part of all of us is the focus behind 2018 National Ag Day. This year’s theme is “Agriculture: Food For Life” and the day will be celebrated across the country.
Sprigs of holly, mistletoe and poinsettias of many colors are favorites for holiday decorating. ISU Extension horticulturists explain what grows in Iowa, how they grow and a bit of the traditions behind these festive plants.
