Looking after and decorating your tree
So you’ve found your perfect tree, now you want to make sure it stays fresh through the festive season. If properly cared for, your aromatic real Christmas tree could last more than four weeks so here are our 5 top tips to keep your tree in great condition all season long.
- To make sure your tree stays hydrated and fresh, make a small straight cut across the base of the stump before placing it in water. By doing this, your tree can absorb water better, meaning it will stay fresher for longer and branches won’t droop down.
- Choosing a central location for your tree is important as it will be the hero of your home for the festive season! Be sure to select a position where it won’t be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time. If the tree is exposed to too much harsh light or heat, it will dry out quickly.
- Keep an eye on the water level every day. Make sure your tree has plenty of water, if it gets thirsty the tree may seal itself off at the bottom and won’t absorb any more water which could cut its life short. Watering the Christmas Tree is a great activity for the kids, let them take it in turns checking water levels and filling up the bucket each day!
And now for the fun part! When decorating your Christmas Tree, there are no rules – anything goes. Some families like to stick to a theme while for others, a more random approach is preferred. Whatever works for you and your household is completely up to you, but don’t forget the fairy lights and something special for the top.
