What type of Christmas tree do you sell?

We sell Nordman fir Christmas trees, these trees are known for there stunning appearance, with needles that are not sharp and do not drop readily when the tree dries out. We also sell potted trees which are predominantly also Nordman fir, but we do sometimes stock other varieties.

Can I plant my pot-grown tree out after Christmas?

Yes, you can, although as they have been grown in there pots they probably won't grow as large as trees grown outside from seed.

How should I care for my Christmas tree?

Its best to store the tree you get from us either outside or in a garage until you want to put it up. When you do put it up try and pick a place away from things like a fire or radiator as this will dry it out, cut an inch off the bottom to help with water uptake and place in a water-holding stand. Please check the water daily as they can drink quite a lot. If you have underfloor heating it is advisable to try and raise the tree off the floor by placing it on a small table or something similar to get it away from the heat.

Do you sell anything else?

Yes, we do, alongside the trees, we sell wreaths, water-holding stands and decorations.
