TREAT­ING YOUR TREE

Lancashire Life - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
