Types of Christmas Tree

Norway Spruce (Picea Abies)

The traditional Christmas tree with short green needles. Best suited for a cooler position or ideally outside. If it is allowed to dry out when brought into the home, it will drop its needles badly. However, if kept in a water-holding stand which is regularly topped up with water it should remain fresh throughout the festive period with minimal needle drop.

  • Cut Sizes Available: 150-180cm (5’-6’) £19.95 / 180-210cm (6’-7’) £24.95 / 210-240cm (7’-8’) £29.95
  • Potted Sizes Available: 60-80cm £24.95 / 150-175cm £35.95

Caring for your Christmas Tree

Cut Trees

For best results, please ensure the following:

Once home, roughen up the end or cut a thin slither off the base of your tree to expose fresh-cut surface (this allows your tree to take up water). Place your tree in a bucket of water for a long drink, this will pump up the needles for a fuller looking tree and help to reduce needle drop. All our trees come pre-drilled to accommodate a stand straight stand/pin stand. Please remember! If you are using a stand straight/pin stand the amount you remove from the base of your tree should be kept to a minimum to ensure the hole is deep enough to hold your tree securely on the spike, we recommend that you roughen up the end rather than cutting any off.

We recommend that you store your Christmas tree in a cool, frost-free place until required. Your Christmas Tree will look it’s best for 10-14 days, needle drop is inevitable once the tree has been inside for this amount of time, so plan your Christmas and New Year festivities with this in mind.

When you bring your tree into your home, use a reservoir type tree stand, this is the most effective way to maintain the freshness of your tree.

Check the stand daily to make sure that the level of water does not fall below the base of the tree. With many stands, there can still be water in the stand even though the base of the tree is no longer submerged in water.

When positioning your tree, keep away from sources of heat e.g. fireplaces, radiators or direct sunlight. Lowering the room temperature will slow the drying process, resulting in less water consumption each day.

Containerised/Potted Trees

Thoroughly water the compost and place a saucer beneath the pot.

Keep the Christmas tree in the house for a short a period as possible. If possible put the tree in a frost-free place to re-acclimatise before planting out, constructing a windbreak around the plant would also be beneficial.

Stands

Putting your tree up has never been so easy with our great selection of Christmas Tree stands! Available in a variety of sizes and styles and our staff are on hand to help with your selection.
