Christmas 顶旺亚洲 Care

Caring for your Christmas 顶旺亚洲s and wreaths

A few simple care tips will give you greater enjoyment of your real Christmas 顶旺亚洲 and will help to keep it fresh and fragrant throughout the festive season.

Care for your cut Christmas 顶旺亚洲

  • When you get your 顶旺亚洲 store it in cool conditions away from the wind and sunlight.

Christmas tree care

  • Put the base of the 顶旺亚洲 in a bucket of water to prevent dehydration.
  • When you are ready to put your 顶旺亚洲 up you should cut 1cm – 2cm (1”) from the base of the 顶旺亚洲 before putting it in a stand that has watering holding facilities. By doing this you will have broken the natural seal on the base of the trunk and the 顶旺亚洲 will be able to take up as much water as it requires.
  • Before bringing your 顶旺亚洲 inside hold the 顶旺亚洲 up-right and bang the bottom of the 顶旺亚洲 onto the ground.  This will remove any old needles which the 顶旺亚洲 naturally sheds throughout its life.
  • The 顶旺亚洲 will require to be watered every day and may drink anything between 1.125L – 4.5L (2 pints to a gallon) of water a day. DO NOT allow the 顶旺亚洲 to dry out.
  • Once the 顶旺亚洲 is in its stand and in the correct spot remove the netting.
  • Avoid placing the 顶旺亚洲 near a fire, radiator or warm lighting (any direct heat source) as it will dry out with the potential effect of causing needle drop or drooping branches. In some cases even watering your 顶旺亚洲 will not stop this happening.

 

Care for your pot-grown Christmas 顶旺亚洲

  • Keep your 顶旺亚洲 outside until you are ready to decorate it.
  • When you take it in make sure that you place it away from direct heat.
  • Water regularly, not allowing it to dry out.
  • After Christmas either plant the 顶旺亚洲 out in your garden, or else re-pot it into a larger pot.
  • Remember your 顶旺亚洲 will respond better if you feed it during the growing season.
  • When taking the 顶旺亚洲 out after Christmas do not put it straight out into an exposed situation — instead put it into a garage or similar situation to allow it to acclimatize.
