It’s that time of year again! This year King and Co are stocking three varieties of Christmas Tree, Norway Spruce, Blue Spruce, and Nordmann Fir.
A Christmas tree is often the centre of attention wherever it is placed, meaning it is important to select the right variety and size for the location where it is to be placed. King and Co – based in Braintree, Essex are stocking Norway Spruce, Blue Spruce and Nordmann Fir in sizes ranging from roughly 4 to 7 feet in height.
It is important to keep potted trees well watered, preferrably outside, to make sure the tree survives for next year.
We offer Norway Spruce, which is the oldest traditional Christmas tree with its short light green needles, being bushy with an upright habit. Every Christmas, Trafalgar Square forms a display from a Picea abies that is sent from Norway itself. Keep watered to avoid needle drop.
Blue Spruce, best known for its blue steel colour has short, silvery blue, glaucous needles. A pretty tree which is normally symmetrical with a very dense branch habit. Originating from the Rocky Mountains, USA. Again, water to avoid needles dropping.
The third variety is Nordmann Fir, which is a very popular Christmas tree owing to its dense, bushy habit and is less likely to drop needles than other varieties. Below is a sample of the potted Christmas trees at the Nursery in Rayne, Essex.
Local delivery is available.
You can buy trees, hedging, screening trees, shrubs and topiary online by browsing our website. If you do not see a plant or size that is suitable for you then please call as we stock a wide variety of plants in our tree nursery. It’s worth noting that many other websites sell other people’s stock (i.e. they act as an agent) so you cannot view the products at their own site. At King & Co, all of our advertised plants are available for viewing at our tree nursery in Rayne, near Braintree, situated just over an hours drive out of London.
