Known as the original Christmas tree, the Norway spruce is great for outdoors.
It’s a beautiful shaped tree with a lovely scent, but don’t hold its needles well, so must be kept cool and watered daily.

They offers excellent needle retention and provide gentle scent in your festive home.
CARING FOR YOUR REAL CHRISTMAS TREE
There’s no better feeling than hand-picking your perfect Christmas tree – it really celebrates the start of the festive season.
But after the struggle of getting it home, it’s important to keep it looking fresh and knowing how to properly care for your tree can be the difference between it looking full and healthy or sad and bare. So here are our easy tips for looking after your real Christmas tree.
- Take your tree out of its netting as soon as you get it home to prevent mould and fungus growing in the damp branches.
- Place your tree in a conservatory, garage or somewhere that it is protected from wind and sunlight to allow it to adjust to room temperature gradually before bringing it indoors.
- Cut a few centimetres off the bottom of your tree and place in a stand with a water reservoir.
- Allow your tree to drop before decorating and locate your tree away from any heat source such as radiators. Heat will dry out the tree and it will lose its needles faster.
- Water your real tree every day to keep it looking plump and full. A dehydrated tree will start to droop and wilt very quickly, so moisture is the essential ingredient in looking after your tree. A real Christmas tree can drink 1 to 2 litres a day depending on its size and your heating.
The Christmas Flower
Quintessentially festive, Poinsettia’s is a firm favourite to brighten up your home this Christmas. Also known as the Christmas Star or Christmas Flower, it is said that this winter flower’s association with Christmas comes from a Mexican legend.
With proper care, your Poinsettia can last long past the festive season. Here are a few tips to keep your Poinsettia looking healthy!
1. Don’t over-water. Overwatering can quickly lead to waterlogging, which can causes root rot.
2. Avoid cold drafts. Poinsettias need warmth and light so keep close to a radiator but away from any draughty areas
3. Place in indirect sunlight. Sufficient light is needed for the plant to grow and thrive so place by a south-facing window.
