the problem with poinsettias is not the hardening off but the number of days and the number of hours of daylight that they have been subjected to.They are not winter hardy. While I have not explored a web site for them they are usually available from Dutch wholesale florist propagators and probably are still available for christmas.

I was hoping to get them from a nursery here who may import them themselves
