Here at Sunshine it’s a magical time when families come in to pick their perfect tree, and our range offers something for everyone. All our staff are very patient and love showing off the beautiful trees!
Fraser firs are also a non-drop tree. They have a less even shape, but can be narrower, which maybe ideal for those with tighter spaces, they have an aroma that fills the house. Again the needles are soft and are an amazing blue- silver colour that almost glows.
Norway Spruce, for those of you who are over a certain age,
was probably the tree you had as a child. It is definitely not a non-drop tree,
and as such should be put up closer to Christmas than the other two. This tree
has the most wonderful pine scent and is a rich green colour. If the tree dries
out too much the needles do drop and you’ll be hoovering them up for weeks to
All trees need water to keep them looking fresh and
retaining their needles, the best stands, like the ones we sell, have a
reservoir which needs topping up regularly to help needle retention. It’s best
to saw 2 or three inches off the bottom of the tree when you get home before
putting them in water to ensure good water uptake.
Try to place your tree away from any source of heat and keep them watered!
We also have a range of Norway Spruce and Nordmann fir in
pots, which are a great alternative to cut trees. Being a living tree, they can
be kept from year to year. They also tend to be smaller, so are great if you
have limited space, as a second tree in your home, or as a Christmassy focal
point by the front door. In addition to these, we sell potted Blue Spruce,
which have a glaucus gleam, a natural blue glow, adding to their charm. For
those who are just looking for a table decoration, we also have some small
Picea Conica, a proper Christmas tree in micro form.
