Caring for Blooming Gifts Poinsettias, African violets, cyclamen, azaleas, holiday cacti, and kalanchoe - all are popular holiday gifts to give and receive. But once they are settled in their new homes, how do we keep them healthy and thriving? Here are some tips to keep in mind. Include the key points on a care tag with the plants you give as gifts.
Keep soil moist, not wet. Saturate the soil with room-
temperature water in the morn-ing so foliage can dry before nighttime. If water drains out immediately, the plant is root-bound and needs to be repotted with fast-draining soilless potting mix. Water cyclamen and African violets from the bottom by setting
them in a tray of water for a few minutes and letting the soil soak up water.
Turn on the lights. Flowering houseplants often
don’t rebloom because of insuffi-cient light. Place plants in a south-facing window or set them under full-spectrum grow lights.
Indoor temperatures of 55 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit are usu-ally adequate for most flowering houseplants, although tropicals such as holiday cacti and garde-nias need cooler temperatures of 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit to set buds.
Fertilize. Use a dilute soluble fertilizer
according to label directions when plants are in active growth and flowering. When plants take a rest, stop fertilizing. Once a month, flush the pots for a few minutes until water drains from the holes to remove any built-up fertilizer salts.
Raise humidity. Many flowering houseplant spe-
cies are accustomed to high year-round humidity. Run a humidifier near the plants, or group the plants together on a 2-inch layer of pebbles in a tray of water. The water should not touch the pots.
Control pests. Oftentimes you can control
spider mites by dunking plants upside down in a sink full of soapy water. Sprays of insecticidal soap or horticultural oil will control many pests.

Gardening With Charlie
The secret to creating a crowd-pleasing holiday spread is com-bining a healthy helping of tradi-tion with a pinch of creative new recipes that showcase beloved holiday flavors.
Basil, thyme and black pepper provide the perfect kiss of flavor to Roast Turkey with Mushroom Stuffing. Basting the bird with
an infusion of these three, along with Swanson Chicken stock and lemon juice ensures that the meat will be moist and juicy, and the outside of the bird will roast to a beautiful golden brown.
Green Bean Casserole — the iconic recipe that combines Condensed Cream of Mushroom soup, green beans and french
fried onion topping — was creat-ed 55 years ago by Dorcas Reilly of the Campbell Test Kitchen, and is still a favorite today. To change it up a bit, add shredded cheddar cheese, chopped red bell pepper, toasted sliced almonds or crumbled bacon.
Roast Turkey with Mushroom Stuffing Seasoned Stuffing 1 turkey (12 to 14 pounds) Vegetable cooking spray
1. Stir 1 3/4 cups stock, lemon juice, basil, thyme and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper in a small bowl.2. Heat the remaining stock, remaining black pepper, celery, onion and mushrooms in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the stuffing to the saucepan and mix lightly.3. Remove the package of giblets and neck from the turkey cavity. Rinse the turkey with cold water and
pat dry with a paper towel. Spoon the stuffing lightly into the neck and body cavities.* Fold any loose skin over the stuffi ng. Tie the ends of the drumsticks together.4. Place the turkey, breast side up, on a rack in shallow roasting pan. Spray the turkey with the cooking spray. Brush with the stock mix-ture. Insert a meat thermometer into the thick est part of the meat, not touching the bone.5. Roast at 325°F for 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until the thermometer reads 180°F., the drumstick moves easily and the stuffing reaches 165°F. Baste occasionally with the stock mixture. Begin checking for doneness after 3 hours of roasting time. Let the turkey stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
*Bake any remaining stuffing in a covered cas ser ole with the turkey for 30 minutes or until the stuffing is hot.
