TREATING YOUR TREE
Don’t begin decorating your tree the moment you bring it home. Place it in a garage or a sheltered outdoor environment with the base in a bucket of water, so that it will gradually acclimatise to life indoors.
Remove 2cm from the bottom at slight angle. This will allow it to drink more effectively.
Make life easier by keeping the tree in its netting until you have put it in the stand. It will be much simpler to handle.
Don’t place it too near a fire or radiator – it won’t like it.
Your tree will need two or three pints of water a day, so choose the right stand.
