A few Christmas trees left.

This year we have 3 different varieties of cut trees – Nordmann Firs, Fraser Firs and Norway Spruce. They range from 5ft to 9ft high. You will need a stand or bucket to put them in. We also have trees on logs ranging from 4ft to 8ft high where the tree is inserted in a log stand.

Fir trees – 2 different varieties this year.  All the Fir trees have very low needle drop and will retain their needles, as long as you keep either the log constantly wet or ideally a stand with a water reservoir topped up with water. They all have fragrant foliage. It takes 7-10 years to produce a 6-7 feet tree!

NORDMANN FIR – Abies normanniana. Symmetrical shape, with strong branches. The needles are long, mid green and soft. It is a wide tree, so you will need a reasonable space to show this tree off to its best advantage – for a 6ft tree allow approximately 5ft. Very low needle drop. Logged trees – 4-8ft / Cut trees – 5-10ft

FRASER FIR – Abies fraseri. Pyramid shaped with branches that turn slightly upward. Soft flat needles of blue-green above and silvery-grey bands on the underside. Pleasant citrus pine fragrance. Compact, dense shape. It is a narrow tree, making it ideal where space is at a premium. Very low needle drop. Logged trees – 6-8ft / Cut trees – 6-9ft

NORWAY SPRUCE – Picea abies. Traditional Christmas tree. 8-11years to grow a 6-7feet tree! The needles are mid to dark green and prickly to touch, but the strong branches make it an ideal tree to decorate. It has its own unique scent, feel and shape. Do not allow to dry out. Best in a stand with a large water reservoir. Water well – a gallon of water a day! Cut trees – 5 – 7ft.

We have a few hand made wreaths made using nature’s bounty now.
