Our Tree Care Top Tips  

- Before you come to buy your tree, choose where it's going to go. Ideally, this will be a well-lit corner, but where it isn't going to be crashed in to by chocolate-fuelled children, or wobbly adults from too much mulled wine. 
- Read about our trees. Some may be more suitable than others, depending on if you have young children, explorative pets or whether you want to plant it in the garden after Christmas. 
-Think about what size you will need. A small tree might look silly in a large room, whereas that 8ft giant that you've bought home on the roof of your car is not going to fit in your cottage unless you do some drastic pruning! 
- To make it last, make sure that you keep your tree watered and not too hot. Remember, they have never lived indoors.
