Fir favourites

Let's Talk - - CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS -

The BCTGA says that the most pop­u­lar va­ri­eties of Christ­mas tree are:

Nord­mann Fir - dark green fo­liage and soft leaves, with good nee­dle re­ten­tion.

Nor­way Spruce – of­ten re­garded as the tra­di­tional tree, it is usu­ally a tidy pyra­mid shape with a typ­i­cal Christ­mas tree smell.

Blue Spruce - ele­gant with nat­u­ral blue fo­liage.

Fraser Fir - leaner in shape with much denser fo­liage and a bal­sam fra­grance.

Some grow­ers have other va­ri­eties avail­able.
