…….on another beautiful day at Scottish Christmas Trees we reflect on how lucky we have been so far this year with the weather. The colours have been simply stunning, rich sun reds, yellows and oranges, strong sky blues and a wee hint of white with the frosty mornings. We are looking forward to introducing you to our Christmas Tree Harvest Team tomorrow – everyone is having an early night and getting ready to be saying ‘cheese’ for the camera at lunchtime tomorrow. Watch this space……..
Sunny days here this week at Scottish Christmas Trees. We are already very busy taking orders but as many of our customers already know we plant new trees each and every year. 2019 is no different – here is a baby ready to go into the ground and to be nurtured until its fully grown in a good few years time! This could be in your home sometime in the future………. in the meantime its our job to look after it for you!
For more information on how we grow from this to the finished tree see our page https://www.scottishchristmastrees.co.uk/life-cycle-of-a-tree/
2019 at Scottish Christmas Trees has been like others in many ways – busy times looking after our wonderful Fraser Fir, Nordman Fir and Norway Spruce Trees ready for the Christmas Harvest season. We have also, and as always, planted lots and lots of little baby trees to ensure we have stock for many years to come. How do we manage all of this – run the farm, look after our free range hens and everything else in between? Easy – we have helpers – Annie and Peggy have been with us for a good few years, but 2019 saw the arrival of 2 more – Maisie and Harris! What a great summer it has been training our new pups to be in the ‘office’! Now, all we have to do is train them to harvest trees, answer telephone enquiries and look after our website customers!
And so the Christmas Tree Harvest begins for 2019.
After a very wet few weeks, yesterday saw us finally managing to complete the task of measuring and counting our lovely Christmas Trees. Our Fraser Fir, Nordman Fir and Norway Spruce Christmas Trees have been growing steadily all year. As can be seen from our photo, we all went to bed leaving a fabulous sunset on our heels. Even better, we got up this morning to beautiful blue skies!
Enjoying the autumn sun and despite the first frost on windscreens the unanimous decision was to celebrate a wonderful day by opening the Scottish Christmas Trees website. Our Christmas Tree stock has just been uploaded this afternoon, 3rd October and we look forward to another busy harvest season ahead.
Over this year we have had some exciting new additions to our team, but more of that later – lets just say there’s been more hinder than help at times!
Meanwhile……. we now have some baby Christmas Trees to plant. And dont worry, we wont be cutting any real trees for a few weeks yet. Remember, we deliver them as fresh as possible. Watch this space for news from the farm and to see what has been happening since last year!! While you wait, make sure you get your order in early for your ‘Real Tree’ for 2019!!! Our wreath designs aren’t quite ready yet. But our cut and pot grown trees are all available to pre-order with your chosen delivery date.
Before we sign out for a few months and get on with tending to our lovely trees for Christmas 2019, we just wanted to say thank you so much to all our customers who sent us photos of their decorated trees and wreaths. It was a real pleasure to see them all in their glory! We have posted as many as we can here on our website. Follow ‘read more’ below to see the link!
We will review each and every one before we open our website for 2019 – it will help to get us in the mood for another great Christmas season here on the farm!
Thanks again everyone – have a lovely 2019 and we look forward to speaking with you later this year!
