Rental Potted Christmas Trees - What to expect and how to care for them
Here's a short video which explains more about what to expect when you receive your potted Christmas tree. Every tree is unique in shape and will vary from those shown in our video. As we deliver many tress in a short space of time we cannot offer a selection service. When you receive your rental Christmas tree we cannot accept returns based on the look or shape of the tree.
To keep your tree healthy and happy over the Christmas period please follow the guidelines below. This will give the tree the best chance of survival, so it can continue growing outside in our fields once returned, ready for subsequent Christmases. Thank you.
How to Care For Your Rental Potted Living Christmas Tree
Acclimatise your Christmas Tree
We take special care to ensure your tree is in the best condition possible, so it will last throughout the holiday season. If you choose a potted tree, we recommend that you take the time to acclimatise it to your home before decorating. This will ensure it is healthy and happy for the entire festive period. Potted trees are best left in a cool area of the house such as a porch for 24 hours before placing in its final position.
Not too hot!
Our Christmas trees are specially selected and cared for to ensure longevity and freshness. To keep trees looking their best, we recommend keeping them outdoors until needed, and then limiting their time inside to 25 days. We also advise avoiding placing the tree in front of heat sources indoors, as this will cause excessive moisture loss and the needles to drop.
Water your tree
Your Ali and Joe's Christmas tree will be thirsty and needs watering daily with half a litre of water. You will need a saucer which will be provided with your tree.
Too much water and your potted tree will die of 'trench foot', too little and the needles may turn brown and fall. It's just best to check the soil every day to make sure it is not drying out.
