How to keep your Christmas tree happy

A real tree is a real joy: the fragrance, touch and sheer wonder of having a little bit of pine forest at home. Here’s how to keep your Christmas tree looking lovely for longer.

Real trees drink loads. They need around two pints of water every day. Be sure and quench your tree’s thirst but take care not to get any water near the electrics or lights. A hydrated tree is definitely a happy tree.
