Devon Grown Christmas Trees

By Paul, 02/12/2019 11:45 am

It’s that time of year agian and we have our wonderful selection of Christmas Trees available to buy now. As usual we have both Nordman Fir (Non-Drop) and Traditional Norway Spruce in sizes from 3ft up to 10ft. Come in and choose your tree and even if you are not ready for it we can look after it until you are.  All are trees are grown in Devon and are freshly cut just before delivery to us. This makes them the most sustainable choice for a tree this Christmas. For every tree cut a new one, at least, is replanted. We are able to arrange local delivery and we can net trees to make them easier to take away. We also have some potted trees about 3ft tall, which can be planted out after the festive period.  If you need a stand for your tree then we have those too. We are open 7 days a week right though to Christmas Eve.
