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: 80-100cm (2’-3’) £26.95 / 100-125cm (3’-4’) £32.95
Nordman Fir (Abies Nordmanniana)
The most popular Christmas tree variety – a family favourite. With a classic Christmas tree shape and long, soft, dark green needles the Nordman Fir has excellent needle holding properties.

Caring for your Christmas Tree
Store your Christmas tree with its net removed in an upright position in a cool, frost-free place. Do not install your tree too early. To reduce needle drop the best results will be achieved if you bring your tree in for 10-14 days over Christmas.
Saw off 5cms (2”) from the bottom of the trunk*. Place into 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.
*N.B. If you are intending to use a ‘Stand Straight’ tree stand and have requested for your tree to be drilled, then only saw off a thin slither to leave enough drilled depth for the tree to be held on the locating pin.
Either plant your tree firmly in a pot of moist sand with a saucer beneath the container or fix into a Christmas tree stand, preferably one with an integral reservoir and top up water level regularly.
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.
Positioning Your Tree Inside
DO NOT BRING YOUR TREE IN TOO EARLY. IT WILL BE AT ITS BEST FOR ONLY 10-14 DAYS.
Place in a cool position away from heat sources and out of draughts. Top up reservoir in the tree stand and water compost as required, being mindful of the electrics.
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.
