Tree care

The way to get the best out of your freshly cut Christmas tree:

  • It is advisable to let a freshly cut Christmas tree stand for a day or so outside in a bucket of water before taking the tree into the house.
  • We recommend you treat your Christmas tree like a cut flower, cut 1/2 inch off the trunk (stem) before putting it in water holding stand.  Keep it topped up with water as you will be surprised a just how much it will drink.
  • Display as far away from a heat source as possible, not next to a radiator or that roaring open fire or wood burner.
  • Remember, the better watered and cooler you can keep it, the longer it will last. We occasionally find Christmas trees in our fields which have been cut but not sold with their needles still on at Easter.
