Christmas tulips are grown in the same way as hyacinths. Ready-made bulbs are usually found in flower shops before Christmas, but they are not as common as hyacinths.
The Christmas tulip is a nice Christmas flower
Christmas tulips have all the nutrition it needs in the onion. Just put the displaced onion in the soil and then water sparingly. It must not be too wet, because then the onion will rot. The Christmas tulip is almost the most beautiful as a complement to a larger Christmas group. In recent times, however, it has become common to grow one by one in a cylindrical glass vase, preferably without soil and with exposed onions and roots. The onion itself must not be left in water, but you can have some glass balls or stones in the bottom, on which the onion rests, while the roots reach into the water.
The Christmas tulip is seen as a disposable Christmas flower.
Save or not save Christmas tulips?
There is no point in saving the bulbs when they are in bloom. They are so cheap to buy and also it is not certain that the onion will bloom again, as the tulip is sold when it has its ultimate growing age. If you still want to try, you can always save the bulbs and then plant them out in some flowerbed, as soon as the soil clears.

Let Christmas bloom in the flea market finds!
Of course you can make a charming Advent candlestick from four old almond mills! Or let dear heirlooms come to light and hold the most beautiful flowers of Christmas. Do as Jonna Jollmo - invest in recycling and get more joy out of your flea market finds and family heirlooms!

When the Christmas dinner is served, it is extra charming if Grandma's old saucepan is allowed on the table - filled with white Christmas roses.
Age: Turns 31 on Christmas Eve.
Family: Cohabitant Fredrik and son Balder, 4 years.
Bor: On a farm outside Hammenhög in Skåne.
Make: Runs Miss Bräken, a flower shop with a retro fabric that protects the environment.
Or perhaps Grandma's most beautiful silver dish with hyacinths, moss and dry twigs from nature's treasure chest.
Let all the generations of the family attend Christmas in the form of utensils from decades back. It is both environmentally friendly and recycled - and also much more beautiful - than newly purchased plastic pots.
Jonna Jollmo in Hammenhög on Österlen has been a collector since childhood. Then she rooted for Grandma and Grandpa's wind as soon as she got the chance.
She is a given visitor to all the flea markets in the area all year round and she takes a lot of what she finds to her flower shop Fröken Bräken, where she then makes Christmas arrangements in beautiful old things that might otherwise have ended up on the tip.
Jonna creates unique Christmas groups in recycled flea market finds in her shop Fröken Bräken.
- I like the 60s and 70s a lot with their gloomy colors, says Jonna. But even the 30s and 40s with their blue and white porcelain fit in my shop.
In addition to flowers and groups, she also sells the utensils separately - and the shop fittings also if a customer should buy it. In the cozy environment, a funnel gramophone is crowded with an old suitcase, winter boots of various kinds and a burgundy velvet sofa that Jonna traveled around the country and kingdom to find.
Right now, Christmas music fills the store and, together with lit candles, creates old-fashioned Christmas garlands in cardboard and the scent of freshly cut hyacinths, a pleasant atmosphere.
A beautiful old mushroom terrine can withstand cold but not frost. Fill it with white Christmas rose and hyacinths that are both buddy and knocked out - it will be nice together!
Jonna wants to inspire everyone to try to make their own Christmas groups, to put love into arrangements we will give away or enjoy ourselves. Above all, she wants to suggest letting nature guide us. Take a turn in the woods and pick what you find on the ground!
- I do not have to follow a lot of Instagram feeds to get inspiration, says Jonna. For me, it is enough to follow nature!
It's great to see the Christmas arrangements grow under Jonna's fingers. She loves white flowers so she prefers to use them, but preferably with hints of color in the form of dried orange slices, apple rings and chives.
Jonna combines plants such as chives and eucalyptus with Christmas ceramic hearts and red package string.
- Everyone who has a garden can certainly find variety there for their Christmas groups. The onion is very grateful and all forms of seed capsules and everything that has dried can be used excellently.
- Feel free to let children and grandchildren be with you when you are busy with flowers, but do not have too great demands. Have fun! My 4-year-old son wants to help but is stubborn and determined and would rather do everything himself.
Jonna loves Christmas and starts decorating at home in early November. Christmas Eve is her birthday! Then the day begins with the friends being invited to a magnificent breakfast with wort bread, ham and various cheeses.
The Christmas table is set with Jonna's favorite flower - the amaryllis - preferably in all conceivable colors and shapes.
- I let them stick up at different heights from a large sugar box and decorate with another favorite, soft-one, which is a long-haired variety of one. And light loop. Then it's Christmas!
Four almond mills and a wooden box will be a nice Advent candlestick.
Jonna collects almond mills - here is her Advent candlestick! Press the candles into a little brown oasis so that they stand firmly. Attach the grinders to a wooden box that you decorate with your favorite decoration.
Add moss if you want to hide brown oasis, but do not forget to wet the moss before you light the candles!
Welcome arrangement on the stairs.
The zinc tub will be perfect for the December outdoor group. Make holes in the bottom, start with leca balls and plant in soil. Then it can withstand moisture and cold.
Christmas roses thrive best outdoors and are nice with larch twigs, rosehips and silver candle holders that used to be used for candles in the Christmas tree - flea market finds! Use light loop for outdoor use. Or grave candles in a holder, which can burn outside.
Cypresses, the small conifers we often call junipers, have become part of our Christmas decorations.
If they are to stay indoors after Christmas, they need a bright place. If they are exposed to too much heat and dry air, they also need to be showered from time to time.
Alternatively, you can plant cypresses in a pot and display them in the garden. If there is severe cold, you may need to give them a little extra protection by insulating the pot. Wrap it in, for example, sackcloth and place them on a piece of wood or something else that protects against the cold from below. Keep in mind that the colder it gets, the less water the plants need.
If you have good foresight, you can dig a pit in the flower bed before there is frost in the ground. There you can then plant the plants you want to save. Fill with soil and water gently once.
Choose a sheltered place with partial shade so they can stay there for the rest of the year. They can grow large and should therefore not be planted sparsely.
We also find lovely scents in the Christmas leaf and the ice lily, the lily of the valley with its clear growth and its sweet flowers. The Christmas azette is "fast", you can next see how it develops if it is allowed to stand warm and good. If you want to preserve the beauties a little longer, put both the Christmas tray and the hyacinth in the glazed conservatory or where it is a little cool overnight and when you go to work.
The year is coming to an end and for many it is the biggest holiday that is approaching. For many, Christmas is experienced as a weekend with a lot of must-haves and for others the weekend is just enjoyable and relaxed.
If Christmas is celebrated in the traditional way, there is a lot to catch up on during the month of December, Christmas presents must be arranged, good food must be served during the Christmas weekend and the home must be both decorated and cleaned.
Creating an atmosphere in the rooms and window frames does not have to be a burdensome task before Christmas. Out in the shops, there are lots of Christmas flowers just waiting to adorn someone's home. Feel free to choose an easy-care alternative in the form of hyacinths and amaryllis. Christmas bulbs do not require much care as everything needed for a magnificent flowering is included in the bulb in the form of stored nutrients.
Both the amaryllis, Hippeastrum x hortorum, and the hyacinth, Hyacinthus orientalis, have the task of doing their best to decorate our homes before Christmas. It should be added that there are also fragrant tassels and ice lilies in the stores.
The poinsettia is almost a must for Christmas! Grateful Christmas plant that blooms for several weeks and comes in both red and white.
How to take care of a poinsettia
It has no great requirements but keep in mind that it does not tolerate cold (below 15 degrees), drafts, cold water, direct heat and fresh fruit. Pack it well for home transport and do not leave it in a cold car. If the temperature difference between outside and inside is large, open the paper a little at a time and let your poinsettia get used to the heat without getting a heat shock. Do not forget to move your poinsettia, if you have it on the windowsill and you open the window.

THE POST IS PRESENTED IN COLLABORATION WITH HASSELFORS GARDEN
When I choose plants, I always try as much as possible to choose what is locally produced. I am lucky to have many talented growers in my area. I also choose, with care, plants that will have a long life in my garden after they have offered coloring in pots during the season. To create the absolute best conditions for the new plants, I plant them in pots, preferably large in size, primed with leca balls (do you remember my smart trick? If not look in here) and fills in Hasselfors Garden P-land.
I could probably say that Hasselfors Garden P-land is the basis of all my cultivation as it is well suited for growing many different kinds of plants. I use it for ordinary potted plants indoors, I sow my flower seeds in it, and I use it for planting in the flower beds but also in pots for outdoor use this year. P-soil contains a well-balanced fertilizer that provides good growth and black peat makes the soil dark and moisture-retaining, and is easy to water. Here with me in cultivation zone 1, the winters can be a bit anyway, but usually very rainy and not with much snow. There is a risk that the plants stand and rot in overwatered vessels, but with the leca balls at the bottom that help with the drainage and then the p-soil that helps with the oxygenation with its loose soil structure, they thrive really well and give me beautiful leaves and beautiful flowers!
When I plant in pots this year when there is a risk that it will freeze, I prefer to choose vessels in e.g. zinc or durable plastic. It's so boring if beautiful clay pots crack in the cold, then it's better to choose materials that have a chance to expand a little without freezing to pieces. In addition, it is quite easy with pots that are not so heavy, then I can move around the pots and even take them indoors if it turns out that the temperature drops far too much.
Christmas roses are my absolute favorite this year and every year I acquire some new varieties. I can not possibly have too many of this incredible flower! Some varieties start to bloom here in the flowerbeds with me in mid-November, while others take off and offer flower blooms in February and can then continue into May! If it gets a few degrees minus, the Christmas rose can nod during the night, but recovers quickly in the sun. In addition, the Christmas rose is very grateful to take in as a cut flower, it can last a really long time in the vase if you cut it by cutting a cross in the stem.
I think it is incredibly delicious to take the Christmas rose in a small pot and enjoy it indoors, unfortunately it is not so fond of it. For a couple of days it can stand nicely indoors, but then I lift it out again. Absolutely the Christmas rose thrives best in the greenhouse, but if you have a glazed terrace, for example, it will love that place as well.
In my winter pots, I have chosen to combine the Christmas roses with skimmia and berry heather to get dynamism in the pots. Skimmian is not winter-hardy unfortunately, but it has happened that I managed to overwinter it as it has been mild winters. Fortunately, it stays nice for a very long time in the pot outdoors anyway, even if it gets a little colder. When spring comes and the frost leaves the ground, I plant out the Christmas roses in the flower beds. Some varieties sow willingly and form new small tufts. Guess if I love it?
IN THE GREENHOUSE
It is so cozy to get ready and make Christmas nice in the greenhouse.
The greenhouse is placed so that we can look into the greenhouse from inside our house, which makes it extra wonderful that it is Christmas cozy even there. The Christmas roses love greenhouse life and so do the hyacinths. I put them in terracotta pots, bottomed with a little P-soil, which helps retain moisture a bit, and then cover the bare soil with moss. Simple and also very effective.
I also plant hyacinths in an outdoor vessel. They probably will not bloom, but they are as incredibly beautiful as they are where they are embedded with soft moss around their feet. It will be so welcoming with pots filled with Christmas' most beautiful flowers at the door, in addition, they are very sheltered there from the weather and wind. If I see that it will be a colder night, I sweep over some growing tissue as protection and it gets really cold, well then the most sensitive plants have to move in for a while!
With a light loop in the Christmas tree, a few lanterns with lit candles and a self-made wreath on the door, the house and garden feel very welcoming.
The potted plantings will light up in the dark and delight me all the way until spring! Every season has its joys and I do not want to be without any of them.
