Nordman fir is by far the most popular Christmas tree with its uniform cone shape, soft needles, lush green colour and is the best variety for retaining its needles. Potted trees don’t need stands but you might want a decorative pot to stand it in.
To care for your tree and keep it looking its best right through the whole Christmas and New Year period just follow these simple care tips:
Situate your tree away from direct heat sources – a tree next to a radiator or fire will not be happy and will likely lose needles, dry out and turn brown
Water your tree regularly, as a potted tree with a rootball this tree will be able to retain moisture more easily than a cut tree but it still needs to be watered as our warm, centrally heated houses can dry them out. Water when the top 2cm of soil is dry, you can test this by pushing your finger into the soil. Although the tree needs watering, don’t allow it to sit in water, keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.
Position the tree where it is least likely to be knocked or have people brushing past it.
Once Christmas is over, keep the tree in the garden in its pot or plant out.
