Sometimes referred to as the "King" of Christmas trees, they were traditionally popular in mainland Europe. Their popularity has fallen since the arrival of the Nordman Fir, and from a growers perspective they have their challenges! Most of these trees are now grown for their foliage, which is an ideal soft & fragrant material used in the making of fresh wreaths.
We are introducing a small number of these trees for the first time this year. Another species of fir tree, they normally have a lighter shade of green needle, and can be pruned into some lovely-shaped trees. Of the lesser known tree types this could win some fans!
A relative of the Norway Spruce, they have similar small sharp needles with the added twist of a silvery underside to create a lovely two-tone effect.
A different type of tree altogether with their distictive long needles. Popular in some places, but can be an acquired taste, hence we carry a small stock to satisfy what is a low level of local demand.
We do grow small numbers of other tree types. These are not included on our price list this year, but if you seek the unusual please ask and we will be pleased to give you some more information about our Ernests Fir, Douglas Fir, Korean Fir, Concolour (White) Fir, Englemans Spruce and Meyers Spruce.
