Top Tips For Looking After Your Tree
• Leave it outside till you want to decorate it.
• Cut an inch off the stem when you buy it. Just like with cut flowers, this will help it drink water. A fresh tree will drink half a litre of water a day.
• Don’t put it against or too near direct heat.
• If it’s a potted tree, just keep the soil moist. As soon as you’ve finished, put it back out in the garden! If you plant a pot-grown Nordmann outside after Christmas, it can grow up to 30 cms a year in the right spot.
Lidl are still selling Needle-fresh trees in store. Look for the brand on the label in your local branch.
