There's nothing to put you in the mood for Christmas quite like going to the garden centre on a snowy day to pick out a living Christmas tree, then bringing it home to fill the house with the scent of pinewoods in December.
There are lots of trees to choose from in our Nottingham garden centre, so make sure you get the one that's right for you. Here are some of the varieties to look out for:
Norway spruce: the traditional Christmas tree: lovely perfume and good conical shape
Nordmann Fir: Soft needles and one of the best trees for reduced needle drop.
To help your Christmas tree retain its needles longer
1. Cut 1/4 inch off the bottom of the trunk when you get it home and leave in a bucket of water over night
2. Try to put you tree in the coolest part of the room and avoid placing next to a heat source if possible
3 Use a tree stand that has a water chamber and water your tree regularly.
We also sell rooted Christmas trees in season
Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Nottingham for more information and advice about choosing your Christmas tree.
