Looking after your Christmas Tree
Like caring for a plant, it is important to look after your Christmas tree . A few simple tips will give you greater enjoyment of your tree and will help to keep it fresh throughout the festive season.
After buying your tree it is best kept outside in a cool and shaded position preferably standing in water, until you are ready to move it indoors.
Just before you take the Christmas tree into the house, it is advisable to saw 1" (2.5cm) off the bottom of the trunk. This creates a fresh cut and opens up the pores in the bark, which otherwise block up with sap within a few hours of being cut. The tree is then able to drink water through these pores via capillary action.
Mount your tree in a suitable water holding stand, or a bucket and place away from any direct heat.
Top up the water every day - your Christmas tree may drink 2-3 pints (1-2 litres) of water per day, depending on its size and your central heating settings.
