I have several poinsettas from Christmas. Several have lost their leaves - will they come back? Also, can I move them outside this spring and will they grow. If so, what do I need to do

Now that your plants have lost their leaves you can cut them back. Pruning back encourges new growth and will help keep the plants bushy rather than leggy. You can set the containers outdoors in the spring and summer months and then take them back indoors in the late summer/early fall when the weather begins to cool down. They will be happy growing in morning sun and afternoon shade. Enjoy your plants!
