From 1 December, 2018 - we will be receiving daily deliveries of trees. Our large trees will be approximately 7ft (210 - 220cm) and will be delivered. If you want a larger sized tree simply contact the store by phone after placing your order or put a note in the instructions and we'll give you a call and process the difference in payment. Trees over 7ft will incur a higher charge, but we'll call to discuss with you so you get exactly what you're looking for.
**Only delivering to Ascot Vale & Surrounds. If you are outside this zone please call the store on 9370 8426 to discuss delivery options.
When you are ready to decorate the tree, cut about 1 cm off the butt end and place the tree in a bucket of water or suitable stand. A tree will absorb as much as 4 litres of water in the first 24 hours and one or two litres a day thereafter. Water is important because it helps to prevent the needles from drying and drooping. Water also keeps the tree fragrant. Keep the tree stand filled with water. A seal of dried sap will form over the cut stump in four hours or so. If the water drops below the base of the tree, it prevents the tree from absorbing water later when the tree stand is refilled. If a seal does form another fresh cut will need to be made. Commercially prepared mixes, aspirin, sugar and other additives added to water are not necessary. Research has shown that plain water will keep a tree fresh.
