Tree care Instructions

 

 

To ensure your Christmas Tree stays at its best throughout the Christmas season, be sure to follow our simple Christmas Tree care instructions, and wait until the start of December to purchase your Tree.

Care of the Christmas Tree
It is part of the life cycle of the conifer tree that it sheds needles and they will accelerate that shedding particularly if they are allowed to dry out. Some trees do so more quickly than others. The best way to ensure satisfaction is to care for the tree while it is in your home. A tree should be treated like any plant being brought into a warm, dry atmosphere.

Cut Christmas Trees

It is essential that cut trees should be fresh when purchased. When selecting your Christmas Tree look to see that the needles are not dull or dry. The branches should not be brittle. The outer (green) needles should not fall off if the tree is gently shaken.

  • When you buy your tree we will cut about 3 cm (one inch) off the butt in order to open up the pores of the tree
  • As soon as possible after this, stand the tree in water - a bucket or a water retaining stand
  • If the tree is not going to be put inside straight away stand it in a bucket of water and store your tree outside, but out of the wind, which will dry it out and will blow the tree over.
  • When you are ready mount your tree in a water-holding stand and place it away from direct heat.
  • Keep the container topped up with water every day; you will be surprised how much it needs.

Potted Christmas Trees
These are trees that have been grown in the field and only recently been put in their pots. The trees should look fresh. The trees will be small and seldom more than 1.50cm (four foot). The trees should be watered and cared for as for any house plant but do remember to place a tray under the pot to protect your carpet - the pot like any plant pot has holes in it. After Christmas it could be planted out with a small chance of success.
