' The "growing gifts" of Christmas -- green- or blossoming plants -- are a tradition for holiday giving, and gift plants tied with a bright, wide ribbon make unusually pretty packages. 1C you receive a plant this holiday season, you can help it thrive with the proper dose of tender loving care. Here are some pointers: Star-shaped Poinsottias are the floral symbols of the holiday season. These plants should he placed by a sunny window. The flower should not touch the cold pane and it should be kept away- from drafts and radiators. Room temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees areofet for Poinsettias, which require water whenever the surface soil becomes dry. Azalea plants, with their masses of bright blossoms, favor cool, light locations. Be sure to keep the soil moist from top to bottom, If the soil · t becomes extremely dry, submerge the flower pot in water for approximately five minutes. . Fruit-bearing plants are holiday favorites, and the richly colored harvest of fruit is strictly decorative.

Here are how-to tips.,First cut out desired ornament shapes from cardboard. Circles, pointed ovals, or any geometric shape will do, so long as it's fairly simple. Using the cardboard pattern as a guide, cut out two or three layers of cotton batting for padding. Cover with scraps of cotton calico or red and white gingham cut to same pattern with one-fourth inch seam allowance. Place, the batting between two fabric pieces, and machine-stitch around the edges. Cut away seams close to stitch line. Quilt in diagonal lines across the padded ornament. Sew on gold curtain rings for hanging.
