Guide to Caring for Your Christmas Tree:

To keep your Christmas tree healthy and vibrant throughout the holiday season and beyond, follow these guidelines:

1. Pre-Christmas Care:

  • If you purchase your tree more than 2 weeks before Christmas Day, keep it in a semi-shaded position outside.
  • Water the tree every second day or daily in hot, dry conditions.
  • Avoid watering the tree in full sun to prevent burning; let the foliage dry out before sunlight exposure.

2. Indoor Placement:

  • Position your tree in a bright location indoors, avoiding dark corners.
  • Water your tree 2-3 times per week, adjusting for warmer weather or if the surface soil feels dry.
  • Ensure the tree has adequate space around it to allow for proper air circulation.

3. Post-Christmas Transition:

  • After Christmas, move the tree outside within 2-3 days.
  • Place the tree in full shade for the first week, watering every second day or daily in hot, dry conditions.
  • Gradually transition to a semi-shaded position over the next 2 weeks, maintaining regular watering.
  • This step helps prevent the tree from getting sunburned, as sudden exposure to full sun can be harmful.

4. Long-Term Care:

  • For the best value and continued growth, consider repotting your living Christmas tree into a larger pot every year.
  • Keep your tree growing by providing it with proper nutrients and care throughout the year.

Additional Tips:

  • Be mindful of the indoor temperature; avoid placing the tree near heaters or vents that could dry it out.
  • Check the tree for pests before bringing it indoors, and treat as necessary.
  • If you have a cut tree, ensure the base is freshly cut before placing it in water to enhance water absorption.

By following these guidelines, you'll not only enjoy a beautifully decorated tree during the holiday season but also promote the long-term health and vitality of your living Christmas tree. Remember, proper care from the start ensures a festive and thriving centerpiece for many Christmases to come!
