Poinsettia Ordering and Delivery

We generally begin accepting poinsettia orders in October. Orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. We only grow limited quantities, so it is very important that you get your order in early. All orders are subject to availability. Poinsettias are generally available around Thanksgiving.

Plant Information
All of Headstart Nursery's poinsettias feature deep red bracts with dark green foliage. Plants are grown in 6½ inch pots with festive red pot covers and are individually sleeved for protection during shipment.

*2020 Pricing* Poinsettias are sold for $6.50 per plant; each case of 6 plants is $39.00. We do not charge sales tax, and there is no minimum order. We also have special non-profit rates for holiday fundraisers. Payment is due upon delivery or pick-up. Checks should be made payable to Headstart Nursery.

If you order five or more cases (30 plants) and live in Gilroy or Castroville or surrounding communities within a 20-mile radius of either facility, we can deliver your plants for free.
