How to Care for a Real Christmas Tree
- Be sure to keep your cut tree in a stand. Fill the stand with 3-4 litres of water a day as the tree will absorb this easily.
- Place the tree in a cool shady spot. Too much heat or light will cause the tree to dry out quicker.
- Some tree sellers supply toxin free sprays which can be used to prolong the tree’s greenness. Apply this liberally when the tree first arrives home.
If they are looked after well, real Christmas Trees can last up to 3-4 weeks.
Top 3 Tips for Decorating Your Real Christmas Tree
Hang the Christmas lights first by carefully weaving them around your tree
Add the Christmas tree tinsel – not too much and make sure it is evenly spaced around the tree
Lastly add the Christmas tree ornaments – again being careful to space them evenly around the tree.
