Christmas tree delivery to London

With London's population at nearly 9 million people, it's not surprisingly that it makes good hunting grounds for Christmas tree retailers who try to charge a hefty premium for trees that are often sub-par compared to what's available online and from nurseries elsewhere in the UK. By ordering online from Jackson's Nurseries you can buy direct from the grower and secure a healthy, fresh tree nurtured in the Staffordshire Moorlands on the edge of the beautiful peak district. Save yourself the trouble of venturing out in the traffic to find your nearest Christmas tree market (or embarrassment of trying to haul a 6ft tree onto the tube to the frustration of your fellow passengers!) by ordering through our secure website for delivery to any London address by Fedex courier on a day of your choosing. We've been growing Christmas trees for three generations and sending our trees to all parts of the UK for over 15 years. Our tried and tested packaging technique will ensure your tree arrives looking as fresh and healthy as when it was when dug and shipped from our nursery.

For your piece of mind we've shared the key steps we follow to harvest our Christmas trees and package and fulfil online orders below.


Our Christmas Tree Harvest


1) We plant new saplings and young trees in our Christmas tree fields every year to replace the stock sold each festive season. The growing fields support a large ecology of wildlife by offering a fantastic, safe haven for birds, insects and small mammals that seek shelter and food amongst the growth.


Planting young Christmas tree in back fields


We plant Christmas trees as ‘draw trees’ with native trees in between. As the Christmas trees are harvested, we leave the native species on some part of the Christmas tree growing area to develop into native English woodland.

2) Our trees are cut or dug fresh on a regular basis each year to ensure the tree you receive is fresh and healthy. Our trees are grown at 750ft above sea level which delivers hardy specimens, so if you're buying a root balled tree with the intention of planting it outdoors after Christmas it'll stand the best chance (60% success rate).

3) We know that part of the fun of selecting your own tree is personally ensuring it is exactly what you are looking for. When you place an order with us, our experienced nursery staff will carefully select your tree making sure it is fresh, health and meets any requirement you've indicated in the notes to your order. We regularly replenish the stock on our garden centre so there are always plenty of fine specimens of all types, shapes and sizes for our internet pickers to choose from.

6) We try to use as little packaging as possible to avoid suffocating the tree while making sure we do not compromise on the safety and quality of your tree while in transit. As the first stage in the packaging process we will carefully net your tree to hold the branches upwards and ensure it has a safe journey by courier on the way to your chosen address.

7) We run a thick cane through the centre of the tree to help keep the parcel secure.
