Prepare all your presents because this year, they’ll have a new cosy home.

1. Far East Flora

You’re bound to find your dream tree at this extremely popular nursery.

Two types of real Christmas trees are sold at Far East Flora, the Noble Fir and the Norman Fir. We heard from the folks at Far East Flora that Noble Fir is the species that exude that earthly, pine-smelling fragrance. You know which to get now!

Noble Fir’s strong and stiff branches enable it to hold heavier ornaments – a trait not shared by other species.


Trees are available for pre-order as early as November and be sure to do so early because most are snagged by December! They do bring in trees regularly, so call ahead to find out if there has been a new batch!

Christmas Tree TLC

You don’t need to have a green thumb to take care of your live Christmas tree if you follow these simple steps.

1. Water is key

Ensure that your tree has adequate water. A stand that also includes a reservoir to hold water would be the best. It is important to note that your Christmas tree should be placed on its stand and watered within 6-8 hours of you bringing it home. You can mist it everyday, that will bring out the fragrance of the tree even more!

2. The perfect fit

You see a very pretty stand but it doesn’t really fit your tree; it’s too small. Whittling the trunk to fit it sounds nice a good idea, yes? WRONG. Never ever buy a stand that does not fit your tree’s trunk. The outer layers of the trunk are the most efficient in taking in water and are hence important to your Christmas tree’s livelihood.

3. No heat please

Do not place your tree near any heat source or directly under the sun as it can cause the tree to dry up. If you plan to decorate your tree with lights, use those that produce LED lights, or those that produce low heat.

4. Safety first

Ensure that the ornaments you hang up are not too heavy. Some species may not have the stable branches of the Noble Firs and may cause the ornaments to fall and break. If you have pets, make sure that your tree is protected should your tree ‘faint’.

Now that you’re all set to get and take care of your very own real Christmas tree, all that’s left is to fill it up with loads of presents for your friends and family. Have a very Merry Christmas from all of us!
