The original Christmas tree, the Norway Spruce has been grown on UK shores since Victorian times and is the variety people mostly associate with Christmas. It’s classic shape, look and fresh scent all contribute to that traditional and nostalgic Christmas feeling. It has dark green foliage all year round and featuring a good conical shape, with thin prickly needles that sit sharply rigid, perfect for hanging up those decorations. Needle retention on this particular variety can be poor if it is not properly looked after, but given plenty of water and care then needle loss should be minimal.
Caring for this tree doesn’t take much, it really only needs water to keep it going, although this will be needed often. Make sure when watering that the soil is not waterlogged and don’t allow the container to dry out. Once the Christmas is over, you can put the tree in the garden, you can leave it in the container but it is recommended you re-pot the tree into a larger pot to accommodate it’s growth. The root system that develops within the pot will allow this tree to live for years provided it is given the right amount of care. Keep it outside as close to Christmas as possible, and when it is time to bring the tree inside, keep it away from sources of heat such as radiators or fireplaces, these will dry the tree out and quickly cause it to drop its needles.
