By far UK’s most popular Christmas tree! The Nordmann Fir is a slow growing, bushy tree with long, soft needles and well-spaced branches for plenty of decorations. It's famed for its symmetrical shape and excellent needle retaining properties, making it the perfect tree for most households.
PRICE GUIDE- A 7ft (about 2m) tall Nordmann Fir will cost about £60
A traditional Christmas tree from the Victorian era. The Norway Spruce has short prickly needles, making it a great choice for cat owners who are tired of having their tree pulled over. Its densely packed branches give emphasis to the desirable cone shape looked for in Christmas trees. This variety is better harvested closer to Christmas to help needle retention.
PRICE GUIDE- A 7ft (about 2m) tall Norway Spruce will cost about £46
America’s most popular Christmas tree! The Fraser Fir is another soft needled tree that is well known for its great needle retaining properties. It’s a narrower/ more slender variety - making it ideal for smaller spaces - and has densely packed branches that show off its desirable cone shape. When brought indoors, the Fraser Fir has an incredible, citrusy scent if kept well watered.
PRICE GUIDE- A 7ft (about 2m) tall Fraser Fir will cost about £60
A more modern day Christmas tree that is notoriously difficult to grow. The Noble Fir has soft, bluey-green needles and is another variety known for its excellent needle retention. Its stiff, well-spaced branches make it a popular choice for people needing a tree that can withstand larger/ heavier decorations. We grow these trees primarily for their foliage which we use on our wreaths.

Another traditional tree that was once very popular in the UK. The Scots Pine has a distinctive candle like shape, with long needles and branches that curve upwards. It has excellent needle retaining properties and a wonderful pine fragrance but might be seen as acquired taste to some!
