Caring For Your Tree

Your Christmas Tree is a living, organic plant and needs to be treated as such. Here are a few guidelines to help you get the most from your tree this Christmas.

  • • Always place your tree away from a direct source of heat – radiator, open fire etc.
    • Leave your Christmas tree outside until you are ready to put it up and decorate
    • Before standing your tree, carefully scrape the bottom of the trunk with a sharp knife. This will help it absorb water and stay fresh
    • Large trees require a pint of water a day for adequate hydration – either fill your stand with water and replenish as required or keep a large bowl of water near your tree
    • Unplug tree lights before watering the tree, before going to bed and whenever the tree is unattended
    • Leave adequate space around your tree to avoid hitting off it once decorated. This will ensure that it retains its needles for longer
    • Don’t have the plug behind the trees you will have to come in contact each time you turn lights on or off
