Christmas trees are avalible in a range of styles from plastic, indoor grown trees, outdoor grown trees and ones that are potted with the roots still intcact. Which ever you choose this guide will help you to maintain your christmas tree. (Unless you get a plastic one, which are very easy to maintain)
Grown christmas trees can come in pots with the roots intact, or can come already cut. When buying your tree make sure to ask where it was originally grow, and try to buy localy grown trees, or at least ones grown within the UK than outside of the UK.
Caring for a cut tree:
When you first buy a cut tree, take an additional inch(2.5cm) off of the bottom with a pruning saw
After it has been cut, stand it up with a well of water at the base of the tree
Make sure to check on the water daily, and top it up when needed
With lots of care, youre christmas tree should last for at least 4 weeks.
Caring for a potted tree;
To minimize the damage and stress on your christmas tree, place it in a cool room
Try to keep the tree outside as long as possible, we advise leaving it outside until the weekend before Christmas
It's important to not keep your tree indoors for more than 12 days. However use the tree as guide as to when you should put it back outside
A good thing to note with potted christmas trees, is that if taken good care of, you can use the tree for future Christmases.
Christmas trees are easy enough to look after after indoors, the only problems you may run into are the needles may fall out quickly. You can counter act this by making sure the tree is not near a heat source and the water supply is always topped up.
