Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!
A traditional Christmas starts with the perfect tree, and there’s nothing quite like the scent of a real Christmas tree to get you feeling festive. To help you choose, here are some of the most popular varieties:
- Nordman Fir – excellent needle retention, with very dark green needles and a good scent makes this the most popular tree by far. As well as the traditional shape there’s also a ‘slimline’ version, great for small rooms.
- Noble Fir – it also has excellent needle retention, with a blue-green hue to the needles and a stronger more citrus scent.
- Norway Spruce – the ‘traditional’ or ‘original’ Christmas tree, it has dark green, slightly spiky needles, with a wonderful pine scent and a classic Christmas tree shape. It doesn’t hold its needles as well as the Nordman or Noble Fir but is a great value tree.
Squire’s Garden Centres has a huge selection of beautiful real Christmas trees to choose from. Cut trees start from £29.99 for a 150cm Norway Spruce. Pot-grown trees are popular too, with an 80cm Norway Spruce for £19.99.
Why not get a mini tree as well? They are great for a kid’s bedroom or for the kitchen. A 30cm ‘Picea Perfecta’ is just £7.99 at Squire’s.
Squire’s Chairman Sarah Squire commented, “It is very easy to choose your perfect Christmas tree at Squire’s as they are all displayed by size and type. Our Nordman Fir are all grown in the UK, so by buying one you will be supporting British growers. We also offer expert care advice, free netting, and a free ‘carry to car’ service. Home delivery is available too.”
