As featured by Yahoo News, here are our top tips in getting the best out of your Christmas Tree right up to Christmas:
How can we ensure our Christmas tree looks its best throughout the festive season?
“Christmas trees start to dry out as soon as they are cut,” John Schofield of Battersea Flower Station revealed. “The longer they stay outside in the cold the better they are. Cut trees that have never been inside can still look good way after Christmas!”
Top tips on looking after your Christmas tree:
- Don’t take your tree inside too early. Keep it in the garden or on the balcony for a while if that’s an option.
- Our homes are (hopefully) warm and dry and while it’s impractical to turn off the central heating in December, try not to place your tree right next to a radiator. We’ve seen trees dry our very quickly in rooms with underfloor heating.
- Cut maybe half an inch off the base of your tree and let it stand in water. Try not to chip wood off the side of the trunk, as these outer layers take up the most water. If you’re not taking your tree inside straight away you can do this in a bucket in the garden. You can buy Christmas tree stands that can be filled with water and regularly topped up.
