ABOUT US

Warwickshire Christmas Trees is a small family business in the Cotswolds. Mike lived most of his life in South Africa and loves being outside doing practical work – his summer business is swimming pools! Carey comes from a Norfolk farming family and, with dogs Kai and Zak also enjoys the outdoor life. Mike’s son Ollie, now in his late teens, has been involved from the beginning and is gaining lots of valuable business experience which will hopefully help him in the future.

We planted our first 5000 trees in 2014 shortly after buying our small holding at Kestrel Ridge between Tysoe and Shenington on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border near the towns Shipston on Stour & Banbury.

We’ve continued to plant a mixture of varieties each year and are now starting to harvest some of the faster growing trees. A 6 foot Nordman fir takes 6-8 years and a lot of care and attention to grow into a beautiful tree ready for sale, so for the first few years we have partnered with another farm near Ledbury in Herefordshire to supply our larger trees. These are premium trees which have been very well received by our customers.

2018 will be the first year that we sell trees directly from the farm and we are excited to welcome our customers here and show them what we do.

Freshness is the key to a wonderful tree that will last throughout the Christmas period and bring pleasure to family and friends alike.

Our aim is to provide beautiful, fresh Christmas trees at a competitive price and back it up with traditional good service – and a smile!

WHERE TO BUY YOUR PERFECT CHRISTMAS TREE

IMG_3350

Our Trees

We buy premium plants from a reputable nursery. These have already been growing for 3- 4 years depending on the variety. Usually this means 2 years as a seedling in controlled conditions then 2 years as a transplant outside.

When we get them they are planted out by hand, either in the spring or autumn, to give them the best chance of getting their roots down and establishing themselves while the weather is mild.

Each tree needs regular care and attention during the year. This means mowing and strimming between the rows to keep the weeds down, spraying when necessary, fertilising to keep a good balance of nutrients in the soil and pruning to achieve the best shape.

When they are ready to sell we carefully harvest them, put them in a protective net and get them to our customers as quickly as possible.

For our larger trees we work in partnership with a farm near Ledbury in Herefordshire,we are very pleased to be working again with them this year

Why buy from us?

By growing and selling our trees close to home we can guarantee they are fresh. They do not need to be cut weeks in advance and transported hundreds of miles so their production has much less impact on the environment.

We hope you will visit us and choose to buy one of our trees. If you do, we are confident you will be pleased with it and hope you will tell others about us.

WHY SHOULD I BUY FROM A BCTGA MEMBER? WHY BRITISH?

All BCTGA members are asked to comply with a code of practice so that British Christmas trees are grown to the best environmental and sustainable practice. Members aim to grow quality Christmas trees, that with the appropriate care, will survive the duration of the festivities.

BCTGA ask people to look for a British grown tree because it is good for the economy, for agriculture and for the environment. Buying British means money is going directly back into the country’s economy and helping provide employment in the agricultural sector. It’s also good for the environment providing shelter for birds and wildlife while the trees are growing.

VARIETIES OF TREE WE GROW

We have planted 6 different varieties of Christmas tree. These all grow at different speeds so for this year we only have the most popular ones available to sell. These are the non-drop Nordman firs and the traditional Norway spruce. In years to come we will have the full range available.

Nordmann Fir

nordmann

A popular choice as this tree retains its needles for longer in the indoor environment. The needles are flattened and are not sharp. They are glossy dark green above and have lightish blue underside. The original non drop Christmas tree.

Needle Retention: Excellent .

Norway Spruce

norway

The Norway Spruce is the ‘original’ Christmas tree. A wonderful shape and an abundance of branches. The needles are small, pointed and a mid-green colour.
The Tree offers a lovely ‘Christmassy’ scent that’s perfect at this time of year

Needle Retention: Good

Fraser Fir

Similar to the Nordman with it soft, wide and flat, needles. The base it not as wide and it has more branches with long, full, lush, dark green foliage.
Ideal tree for tight spaces

Needle Retention: Excellent

Douglas Fir

douglas

Douglas fir has a dense, full bushy shape with a defined angular profile. The branches are packed with soft green needles that are plush to the touch and exude a distinctive pine-like scent. Good for a big room.

Needle Retention: Excellent

Noble Fir

Known for its beauty, the Noble fir makes for an excellent Christmas tree. The needles turn upwards exposing lower branches. The stiffness of the branches makes it good tree for heavy ornaments. It has a distinctive open shape with a deeper, richer green. It’s very aromatic.

Needle Retention: Excellent

PLEASE CALL FOR AVAILABILITY

Lasiocarpa

A very beautiful tree. An amazing blue colour thick and bushy but not too wide. It is narrower than the Nordmann Fir.

Cinco Christmas Tree Stand

YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE QUESTIONS ANSWERED

You can do this by sawing off the bottom 2 cm from base of the trunk. We can do this at the time of sale if required. This will remove any build-up of sap at the bottom, which can prevent water absorption.

Keep your tree away from heat and draughts. For example, do not place it near a doorway, by a radiator or an open fire. Also use low-heat fairy lights and always turn the lights off at night.

Like any other plant it is vital your Christmas tree has a constant supply of water at least a litre per day, in order to maintain its’s freshness & appearance over the festive period. Therefore your tree will require a good stand to hold sufficient water.

If you do not want your tree in the house straight away keep it in a shaded spot outside and steep it in a bucket of water until the last possible moment.

When you’re ready to bring the tree indoors, give it a really good shake to dislodge any loose needles.
