Christmas Tree Size

Our Christmas trees are graded for height and marked up well in advance of cutting or digging. Your tree will be within the size range you ordered, if you want a guaranteed minimum then you are always best to order the next size up. It is always possible to reduce the size by cutting down at the base of the tree if its a bit to big. We measure our trees from the cut or the top of the pot/rootball to the middle of the leader (this is the centre branch when your star or fairy would go) so factor this in plus the height of your adornment too. Also consider that if you are having a rootballed tree the height will not include the rootball or any pot or stand you wish to use. Depending on your stand you may need to remove some of the lowest branches to get it to fit.

Cut/Potted Christmas Trees

Dependent on size, it is supplied potted or cut. To ensure freshness, cut trees will have their rootball cut off as close to the dispatch date, once received you should keep it in a water holding stand. Our potted trees are not 'pot grown', they are dug from the field with a small rootball and placed into a non-decorative pot, this helps the tree to remain fresher for longer over the festive period. It may be possible to plant it out after Christmas but there are no guarantees. Your Christmas tree should be kept away from radiators or any other direct source of heat, such as an open fire. Keep your potted tree well watered. The pots supplied with trees are plain black plastic pots and are not intended for decorative purposes, put them into a water tight pot before watering. We recommend you remove your tree from the packaging outside.

Fresh Cut Christmas TreeCut Christmas Trees
Cut trees are still the most popular choice of real tree as they usually offer the most cost effective solution and are the easiest option for handling. For maximum freshness choose a rootballed tree and have the rootball cut off on the day of dispatch.
Immediately upon receipt of your tree, remove the packaging. Cut about 25mm off the base of the tree and stand it upright in a bucket of water in a cool building (garden shed or garage). Aim to keep the tree in a cool building for as long as possible, taking it inside just before Christmas. Make sure the water in the bucket is kept topped up and spray the foliage with water daily if possible. Choose the coolest room in the house (hallway etc), away from open fires and direct sources of heat (radiators etc). Before taking the tree inside, check it fits properly in your stand or you’ve trimmed enough branches back if keeping it in a bucket. Put the stand (or bucket) in the chosen place in the house, no closer than 60cm to a wall to allow the tree to stand up. Put the tree in the stand and systematically clamp the tree into the stand, ensuring it is upright. If using a bucket, bricks wedged between the bucket and the trunk work well and offer good counter balance. Keep the tree watered in the stand and ideally spray the needles carefully with water everyday (taking care to avoid the lights!)
Take the tree out of the house as soon as possible after Christmas. There will inevitably be some needle loss in the process but nothing 5 minutes with a vacuum cleaner can’t fix. Take the tree to your nearest recycling centre because once chipped and composted, your tree can be recycled as mulch top dressing.

Real Potted Christmas TreePotted Christmas Trees
If you want a tree that you can plant after Christmas then smaller potted Christmas trees have the best chance of survival because proportionally, they have lost less of their roots to enable them to be taken in to the house, however, please remember, they are outdoor trees and taking them inside means we can’t guarantee their survival.
Immediately upon receiving your tree, remove the packaging. Store the tree upright in a cool building (garden shed or garage) and keep it well watered. Aim to keep the tree in a cool building for as long as possible, taking it inside just before Christmas and ideally putting it in the coolest room away from open fires and radiators. Water the tree daily and if possible, spray the foliage with water (taking care to turn off and avoid the lights!).
As soon as possible, after Christmas, take the tree outside. Dig a hole about 50mm deeper than the top of the pot and sprinkle a handful of bonemeal in the hole and on the soil to be back-filled. Carefully place the pot in the hole and pull the tree out of the pot. The soil may fall away but try and make sure that the soil and the roots stay in contact in the hole. Back-fill the hole, firming down each layer with your heel. Make sure the tree is upright and stake at 45 degree angle if necessary. Water roots and foliage copiously in dry periods. Don’t worry if some of the needles fall off initially – it may be transplant shock and they will come back if the tree survives.
We can’t guarantee your tree will live if you have kept it indoors throughout Christmas, however, potted trees often do well and if you follow these directions, you will have given it the best chance of survival.
