Can U Plant Poinsettias Outside In PA In December???
I have Poinsettias I want to plant outside in a ceramic pot on my front porch. I live in a Easton PA so it’s gets cold. Will the Poisettas make it outside in the ceramic planter with soil by being watered and given plant food 1 to 2 times a month????

Only those who live in USDA hardiness zones 10-12 can plant their poinsettias outdoors. You live in zone 6b, where winter temperatures are often below freezing.
Here is information on how to care for them indoors:
