No matter what you’re looking for, we’ve got something for everyone with our fantastic range of real and artificial Christmas trees. Your first and most important decision when buying your Christmas tree is choosing between a real and artificial one. So find the perfect tree for your family with our handy guide.

Artificial Christmas trees

In the past, artificial trees were a bit of a sad affair with a few wiry, sparse branches.  Today, a good quality artificial tree is hard to tell apart from a real one, especially when fully decorated. It's worth spending a little extra to get a tree that lasts even longer – and although it may cost more, remember, you can use it year after year.

Needlelast™ Nordman Fir

>  Excellent needle retention

>  Pine scent

>  Scent rating:  * *


Currently Britain's most popular Christmas tree, the Nordman Fir has excellent needle holding properties. Our Nordman Firs are grown from the very best seed available - from the northern side of a mountain range in Ambourlaui, Georgia - resulting in trees that are slower growing and late flushing, ensuring the ideal number of branches, the classic Christmas tree shape, and long, soft, dark green needles.

Norway Spruce

>  Traditional Christmas tree

>  Pine scent

>  Scent rating: * * *

Despite its name, Norway Spruce grows throughout Britain, and was for a long time the country's most popular Christmas tree. With regular and expert pruning and shearing, it grows into a bushy, classically-shaped tree, with short green needles. These needles can easily drop if you allow your tree to dry out, but if you keep topping up the water it should keep its looks throughout the whole festive season.

Needlelast™ Fraser Fir

>  Excellent needle retention

>  Citrus scent

>  Scent rating: * *


Although similar in appearance to the Norway Spruce, the Fraser Fir has all the desirable needle holding qualities of the Nordman Fir. It has a unique and extremely pleasing fragrance of balsam, and at its best is a pleasingly well-shaped tree. You might find its availability limited elsewhere however, as many nurseries find it a difficult tree to grow.

Blue Spruce

>  Distinctive blue/green foliage

>  Good needle retention

>  Scent rating: *


For many years Germany's traditional Christmas tree, the Blue Spruce comes in colours ranging from grey-green to a brighter blue-green. This pot grown tree has an endearing shape, and is easily decorated. However, its needles tend to be rather sharp, and we wouldn't recommend it to anyone with pets or young children.
