Fresh Cut Christmas Trees
“May all the beauty of this holiday season be yours to enjoy”
from the staff of goffle brook farms
When hunting for the perfect Fraser fir tree, you probably won’t have to look long—the varietal tends to grow in near-perfect triangles, so your pick is sure to stun from any angle. When you bring home your tree, cut a fresh slice off the trunk to allow it to absorb optimal water, and continue to feed it every day—if properly cared for, your Fraser fir tree will retain its scent and needles all season long.
- Use a container that keeps the water level at a constant level. As a rule, tree stands should allow 1 quart of water per inch of the trunk’s diameter.
- Use a stand that is appropriate for your trees’ trunk size; do not whittle the tree down to fit the trunk into a stand that is too small.
- Display your live Christmas tree away from heat sources that can dry it out prematurely.
- Check and water daily to ensure that the tree has enough water.
Short on space for a large Christmas Tree. We have the solution for you! These living Dwarf Alberta Spruce Christmas trees are a fantastic, eco-friendly alternative to cut Christmas Trees. Dwarf Alberta spruce (Picea glauca ‘Conica’) has a shape like a miniature Christmas tree. Bright green needles demand little care to look their best, and a slow growth rate makes this spruce a go-to evergreen for containers. Dwarf Alberta spruce grows just 2 to 4 inches a year. If using as an indoor Christmas Tree, keep well watered and plant outside as soon as possible. A perfect cone-shaped dwarf conifer with dense green needles, soft to the touch. Will slowly reach 6-8 ft tall and 4-5 ft wide in natural form.

Then there is that holiday favorite, Poinsettias. Colours awash in the store with reds, whites and variegated foliage accented by the aroma wafting through the air from the firs and greens. If you’re looking for a beautiful potted plant for this Christmas season to have around the home, poinsettias are a perfect choice. These plants provide a beautiful mix of colors, all shades being perfect for Christmas decor in any home. Along with their holiday appeal, they are also quite easy to tend to and will last for quite a bit of time. They make for a great gift around Christmas too for anyone who enjoys gardening!
The petals, which appear to be flowers at first, are actually modified leaves which are apart of the upper part of the plant, which are called bracts. Poinsettia are an easy, inexpensive way to add classic Christmas decor into any home with very little effort. At Goffle Brook Farms we have plenty of poinsettia for you to plant as decor, use as cuttings for next year, or you can gift one to someone who enjoys gardening. There are many uses for poinsettia during the holiday season, you can use them as decor on the tree, on the wreath, or on a mantel above the stockings. There are many ways to get creative when decorating around the holidays, and using poinsettia is just one great way to do so during the holiday season.
