Varieties

Nordman

Nordman Fir

This is the most established and reliable of the needle-retaining varieties, at it's best and most consistent when grown from Ombrolaui seed stock.

It has quite large, gentle, rich green foliage with a silvery underside. Much research has been done and it can be regulated for leader growth.  (The leader is the top vertical spike upon which your star or fairy would be attached.)

This, combined with a good, soft pruning regime gives a regular and full shape.

Reasonably scented, its foliage grows from the top of the branches and tends to have a bare trunk.


Norway Spruce

Norway Spruce

The traditional Christmas Tree with light green, short foliage. This tree tends to be sheared to give a compact and dense shape.

It has a good scent and fairly gentle needles, but is not renowned for its needle-retaining properties.


Fraser Fir

Fraser Fir Christmas Tree

Bearing a shorter and slightly lighter green foliage than the Nordman, this is a nice and compact tree.

One of its 'quirks' is a slightly crooked leader. This is not a fault and indeed adds to the overall character of the tree.

It looks especially good in smaller sizes as the needle length is in proportion to the height of the tree.

It has very good needle retaining capabilities and gives off an attractive, citrus scent.

Treecare

Your tree is best stored outside your home until you are ready to decorate your tree - somewhere cool and dry.

When you get your tree home it is best to cut off approximately 1 inch (2½cm) from the bottom of your tree and give your tree plenty of water to drink.

Some of our christmas tree stands that we have on sale have an integral water reservoir allowing your tree to continue to drink even when in your home.

When positioning your tree, avoid radiators and heating systems close to your tree as this will help prolong the life of your tree.
