The obligatory Christmas tree shot.
We bought this Norwegian Pine just over a week ago. It seems that space is limited at most gardening centers that sell trees here in the UK, so they’re already wrapped in plastic mesh. I suppose so they don’t take up as much room. You thus have to employ a little guesswork in choosing a good tree. The nursery guy told us all his trees were “low-needle drop”, so at least we had that going for us.
We brought it home, set it up and were very pleased at how it looked. Fairly symmetrical, good height, and full bodied, albeit a little thin on top. Most unfortunate though – it’s dropping needles like there’s no tomorrow and should be naked by New Years eve.
