Types of Christmas tree

A freshly cut Christmas tree should last around 6 weeks. The traditional type is the Norway Spruce, but in recent years the Nordman Fir has gained in popularity.

The four main types of Christmas tree are:

Container grown trees

These are small trees (typically no more than 3ft) that have been grown in their pots. The trees should look fresh and need to be watered and cared for as with any house plant. They can be planted out after Christmas.

Cut Trees

These must be fresh - avoid dull and dried up trees with brittle branches. Shake the tree, if any needles fall off, again avoid. Mount in a water-holding stand away from direct heat. Top up with water every day.

Root-balled trees

These come with their roots enclosed in sacking. Keep the roots damp. They should stay fresh, retain their needs and can be planted out after Christmas.

Trees with bare roots

These have been extracted with their roots. Best to soak roots in water before potting in moist earth. They need to be well watered and may survive after Christmas.
