Pair of Italian Cypress Trees 1.4M

Pair of Italian Cypress Trees 1.4M £29.99

Seen all over Italy, these spectacular architectural conifers will add height and year-round interest wherever you plant them.

Living Pot-Grown Norway Spruce 0.8-1M

Living Pot-Grown Norway Spruce 0.8-1M £19.99
It’s impossible to beat that stunning fresh pine fragrance that a real Christmas Tree brings to the home. Artificial trees just aren’t the same in their odd shades of green and papery needles, but fresh cut trees are very expensive for just a few weeks use before they’re hauled off to the shredder – and they can make a mess too. That’s where our fabulous Living Pot-Grown Christmas Trees are a real winner. Yes, you’ll get that lovely pine fragrance filling the room every day, but it will not drop the needles – because it’s still alive! And at about the same cost as a cut tree, you can keep it from year to year too and save a lot of money over 5 or even 10 years. The Norway Spruce is the classic Christmas Tree. British-Grown on the same farms as cut trees, they have been nurtured and trimmed in just the same way. But, because they are grown in their pots, they can easily be kept for many, many years to come. Just a little water in the rootball when used indoors each year, and once the decorations come down, pop it back outside and keep it growing in either or pot or in the ground. In itself, it is a beautiful evergreen garden tree, lovely all year round. It needs no special feeding or pruning – just ensure it does not dry out in summer. Very slow growing, you can use it for many Christmasses to come. Living Christmas Trees – combing fresh pine fragrance, little needledrop and saving you money over buying a tree every year. Adopt one now!
