Christmas Trees

Have Yourself a Merry Farmhouse Christmas

Dec 9, 2016

Christmas of the 21st Century means elbowing your way down a crowded high street, shopping list in hand, rolls of wrapping paper under arm and putting your reusable bags to excellent use.

To us at Cotley Christmas Tree Farm, we enjoy the more traditional elements of the festive season. Top of our list is food, and what better way to welcome in the season of indulgence than with mince pies and mulled wine, which you can get for free when visiting the farm at the weekend. We’re also proud to boast a range of locally sourced festive foods in our expanded new shop – well worth a peruse.

 

We’re also partial to a real tree to help make Christmas feel extra, well, Christmassy! As growers of the trees, we have written another blog post to help those of you who have opted for a real tree the full list of do’s and don’ts for looking after your real tree. To help add those beautiful festive extras, why not join one of our masterclasses run by renowned local crafter, Sarah Pepper. For full details and to book, visit our Events page.

Don’t forget, we’re running a competition to win a Cotley Christmas hamper – all you have to do is share a picture of your decorated Cotley Christmas tree with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, to be in with a chance of winning. 

Nordmann Fir

NORDMANN FIR: This is our biggest seller. It has an excellent shape, with good needle retention. Soft, glossy deep green foliage. This is a very popular child and pet friendly variety and has good needle retention.

Norway Spruce

NORWAY SPRUCE: This is the traditional Christmas tree with an excellent shape, ideal for decoration with a lovely pine fragrance and short, sharp green needles. This variety has received a bad press because of needle loss but this is largely due to them being harvested too early. We cut them fresh and if well-watered and not put in a hot place they survive well from mid-December as a more economical option.

Fraser Fir

FRASER FIR: A very pleasant, sweet scented tree with deep, lustrous green needles. It has a beautiful layered appearance with upswept branch angle and excellent needle retention. It is narrower than the Nordmann and therefore very suitable where space is more limited.

Pot grown tree

In addition to freshly cut trees, we have ‘window box’ size pot grown blue spruce (2-3ft) These trees have a good root structure and can be planted out in the garden after Christmas.

Pot grown tree

We also have large potted Nordman fir and Norway Spruce trees (3-5ft)..

If you are seeking a large tree for outdoors or a very special location please ring 07967025172 to place an order. We can tailor our service to meet your particular needs.
