Fes­tive touch with real Christ­mas trees

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR HOME YOUR BACKYARD -

WITH the fes­tive sea­son now in full swing, the team at Plants Whit­sun­day are here to help dec­o­rate the home with a large va­ri­ety of Christ­mas good­ies in­clud­ing a wide range of liv­ing Christ­mas trees.

While there is zero chance of a white Christ­mas in the Whit­sun­days this year, the store’s col­lec­tion of Christ­mas trees of all shapes and sizes can help achieve that tra­di­tional feel for the hol­i­days.

Plants Whit­sun­day owner Jenny Stokes said there was noth­ing bet­ter than hav­ing a live tree in the house to dec­o­rate and put presents un­der.

If you look af­ter it cor­rectly you can keep it for years to come,” she said.

“The day af­ter Christ­mas you should take the tree out­side and wa­ter it im­me­di­ately. If you leave it in a nice sunny spot and keep feed­ing it there is no rea­son why it won’t grow hap­pily and be there ready for the next year.”

Plants Whit­sun­day has a num­ber of dif­fer­ent op­tions for Christ­mas trees from the larger Daintree pines to lovely sil­ver dust conifers.

They also stock lily pily trees which serve as great mod­ern day Aussie Christ­mas trees.

“All of the staff at Plants Whit­sun­day are plant lovers and are happy to give ad­vice and share their knowl­edge with cus­tomers,’ Ms Stokes said.

Their store is full of Christ­mas gift ideas in­clud­ing a mas­sive va­ri­ety of or­na­ments and gar­den art which would make a per­fect present for friends or rel­a­tives.
