Christmas tree care guide
Having spent time choosing the perfect Christmas tree for your home, we know you’ll want to make sure it stays looking its best throughout the holidays. The only way to make sure is to care for it properly, after all, no one wants a sad, bare Christmas tree.
Tips for keeping a real Christmas tree healthy and green
Take your tree out of its netting as soon as you get home. This will prevent fungus and mold from growing on damp branches.
It should be kept outside in a cool shaded place, preferably standing in water, until it is required indoors.
Before bringing the tree indoors it’s advised to cut off half an inch from the butt in order to open up the pores of the tree.
Mount it in a water-holding stand (sold at the sales area at the Round House) or wedge it in a bucket with pebbles, small stones, or screwed up newspaper.
Place it away from direct heat, such as radiators.
Keep the container topped up with water every day; you will be surprised how much it needs.
We’ve also put all these steps in a quick video for you, as well as a PDF so that you always have the information to hand. You can download the Christmas Tree Care Guide here.
