In this weekend: Aldi Christmas trees
Nordmann Firs are famous for their strong needle retention, beautiful fresh scent and big, bushy branches. These qualities make the bargain Aldi trees outstanding value.
Hand-selected before being carefully wrapped and delivered to store, the trees will arrive as fresh as possible.
‘Nordmann Fir trees take at least seven years to grow, compared to around five for a Norway spruce.’ explains Lee Chambers, Head of Sales at Lovania Nurseries. ‘These extra few years allow the tree to develop its beautiful, dark green foliage and strong branches.’
This year marks the fourth year Aldi are selling the Nordmann Fir trees. ‘Thanks to our long-standing partnership with Lovania Nurseries, we’re able to provide customers with the nation’s favourite, Scottish-grown Nordmann Fir Christmas trees at Aldi everyday low prices.’ says Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Director, Aldi Scotland.
Caring for your real tree
Lee advises, ‘To maintain the life-span of your Nordmann Fir, we recommend cutting between one and two inches from the trunk of the tree. Do this as soon as you take it home and stand it in a bucket of water overnight.’
‘This will allow for moisture to reach the branches more quickly. Helping to keep your tree fresher for longer. Keep your tree topped up with water and it was last well into the New Year.’
