Real Christmas tree tips

Shake your Christmas tree

When your tree arrives, it may be damp and harbouring some mould and fungus.

Shaking the tree will help knock these off, keeping your tree alive for longer.

Water your tree every day

This will keep the resin away, and keep the tree looking full.

A minimum of 500ml a day is recommended.

Use a tree stand

Don’t plant the tree in sand or soil. This will only prevent it from drinking up water effectively.
