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.)
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.
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.
We can supply everything you need for your tree in our well stocked Christmas shop, next to the restaurant.
