christmas trees with roots
It is usually only possible to extract smaller trees with their roots so ‘pot grown’ trees are an option
Christmas tree care advice
A tree with roots, looking to plant on?
The smaller the better when it comes to digging.
The smaller roots break off and no soil comes with the larger root system. Often bare rooted trees don’t survive, due to the loss of roots when they were dug up, but they’re worth a go.
Put them in a container of garden soil and keep them watered. The smaller the tree the greatest chance of success, a tree that’s 3ft tall has a much greater chance of success over a 7ft tree.
Caring for Christmas trees with roots
- Make sure your rooted Christmas tree is freshly harvested.
- Soak the roots in water before potting the tree in moist earth.
- When moving the tree indoors, place it away from direct heat — this will help to prolong its lifespan.
- Keep the earth moist.
- There is a small chance that a rooted tree will survive if planted out after Christmas. To increase the chances of success the tree should be kept well-watered.
All our Christmas Trees are grown in accordance with the BCTGA environmental Code of Practice and are guaranteed fresh.
Providing that appropriate care is taken, trees should survive for four weeks or longer. To guarantee your complete satisfaction, we recommend that trees should not be purchased earlier than December 1st.
