How to look after your tree
To maintain the freshness of your tree, we recommend you follow these simple guidelines:
Keep it outside for as long as possible – it will be much happier in the cold and will benefit from a shower. When deciding on the best indoor location for your tree, ensure it is positioned well away from any direct heat source (radiators, open fires etc.)
For cut trees:
When you are ready to bring it indoors, first cut 2cm off the bottom of the trunk which will allow maximum uptake of water. Use a stand which holds plenty of water and top up on a regular basis!
For containerised trees:
If looked after properly, these trees may replant successfully into your garden. Keep them well-watered whilst they are indoors, and allow to harden off before planting out. Remember, the pots have holes in the base so don’t forget to use a dish underneath.
