When to replant poinsettia
My brother has a poinsettia about six years old. My mother brought it for him the year before she died. It's extremely big and needs repotting but we don't know when to do it. We have been told it's very rare that these plants survive very long.

Yes, it is unusual for poinsettia to survive that long but it is a shrub and can do so given some care.
It can be trimmed back, if you wish, and re-potted in April. You might even take some cuttings from the top of shoots with green leaves. Use half good garden soil and half compost mix.
