Top Tips For Look­ing After Your Tree

The People's Friend - - Nature -

• 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.
