Christmas Trees

Welcome Willow

Dec 22, 2016

Every year everyone dashes, dances, prances to Cotley Farm to see our reindeer. In May we were very surprised by the arrival of a new reindeer and in the build up to Christmas we have been asking Devon to name her! After over 200 entries we created a shortlist of the 5 names we felt suited her best. 830 votes later, 400 all agreed on what our little addition should be called. We thought it was only right that we had a few words from the reindeer herself so here is a note from… Willow.

I finally have a name! My name is Willow, ooo it feels a bit funny saying that. I want to thank everyone so much for helping to choose my name, I love it. You had such a tough decision to make with some lovely names including; Royal, after the Royal Clarence Hotel and Treacle just like the colour of my fur, but you definitely made the right choice. Willow really suits me and it’s so exciting hearing everyone call it out. I am loving my first Christmas. It’s great being around my friends, especially Milly and Billy. It’s loads of fun meeting all the families who visit for Cotley mince pies and mulled wine, and maybe get a picture with yours truly of course. Santa will need a dash of reindeer magic soon but there’s still time to meet us before Christmas! If I don’t get a chance to meet you I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and that I see you on the farm next year! Thank you again everyone for my pretty new name.
Lots of love and reindeer kisses,

Thank you to all our customers who helped us name our reindeer! Don’t forget you can visit Willow and our other reindeer until midday on Christmas Eve for some festive fun. We hope to see you soon!

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) and 3-4ft potgrown Norway Spruce and Serbian Spruce trees. These trees have a good root structure and can be planted out in the garden after Christmas.
