The best selling Christmas tree in the UK, Nordmann Firs are much loved for their symmetrical shape, hardiness and their glossy dark green foliage which is lightly scented. The Nordmann Fir has excellent needle retention, will hold on to its needles as long as possible, they will start to slightly curl inward rather than completely fall off at first. The tree itself requires very little training or pruning, while it is outside a slight trim once or twice a year to help keep its shape is usually all that is required.
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.
