Rain Rain Rain!

This year has been one not to forget for all the wrong reasons!  Summer lasted for all of 4 weeks some time back in May.  Since then our Christmas trees have had more than their fair share of water.

The last 4 weeks has been spent feeding our Christmas trees with organic sea weed fertiliser to try and perk them up.  We have also just finished our marking, this is when we go throughout our fields and put individual labels onto each Christmas tree depending on its height and quality.  With these jobs done we are concentrating on organising our Christmas tree harvest.

Now that we have all our new LED Christmas lights and Christmas decorations in stock our web site is all go.

October Time

Christmas isn’t so very far away now and the last few days have been spent labelling the very best of our best Christmas trees for our web customers.   Coming home from the field the other night I noticed a buzzard hunting for his supper and our friendly robin has reappeared and is often seen sitting on the gate looking into the office window.

We’ve also been busy unpacking and checking lots of Christmas decorations and Christmas lights and finding space for them on the warehouse shelves.   This year we’ve got some ususual coloured baubles – pewter, taupe and aqua marine to name a few.

Do hope we don’t get too much rain over the next few weeks as we begin to get busy – a little frost would go down well.

New Start

As I have only just recently started working here at Scottish Christmas Trees, I have learned there is so much more to Christmas trees than meets the eye! There are lots of different varieties, heights, colours and even smells…

I was taken a guided tour to show me all the variations there are and also how the trees are grown. It really made me appreciate the time and effort that goes into growing a Christmas tree.

With 10 weeks to go until Christmas we are starting to get pretty busy with everyone putting in their orders for their trees and decorations. There are so many different colours of baubles to choose from, I can’t wait to decorate my own tree!

Instead of going for the traditional gold and red theme this year I think I might branch out and go for something different. There is so much choice!
