We announced our winner on Monday as promised and our lucky winner Richard Manson from Templepatrick wasted no time in popping in on Tuesday and collecting his tree with his family. After reviewing our extensive range and seeking advice from our experts in the garden centre Richard was soon on his ‘merry way’ – excuse the pun there but I couldn’t help myself – and all set to decorate the tree aided and assisted by the family no doubt !
Before setting off we shared a few tips with Richard to ensure the tree stays its best so we thought it only right to share them with you so here goes:
Choose a healthy, green tree with few brown needles and here at Coleman’s Garden Centre we quality check all our trees before they go on display for sale so that’s a given.

Trim the trunk by an inch or so when you get it home to remove any dried over resin.

Place it away as best as possible from heat sources such as radiators and directly near the fireplace.

Keep the water level above the base of the trunk at all times.
Congratulations Richard once again and perhaps you will share the finished decorated tree with us – we’d love to see it.
