PREMIUM NORDMANN FIR
is by far the biggest seller in the UK of Fresh Christmas Trees mainly due to its great needle retention qualities and attractive appearance.

Until recent years it was sourced mainly from Denmark but is now readily available from growers throughout the UK and Ireland, albeit not always in the quality that is required for Garden Centres.
A main source is Scotland where Danish growers have invested heavily in the production of Nordmann over the last 10 years particularly for the UK market but Danish supplies remain strong.

We specialise in Premium Grade Nordmann for the garden centre trade in various size ranges from 100cm to 600cm.

CLASS TWO NORDMANN
It is however necessary for us to carry a stock of Class 2 Nordmann for customers in more price sensitive areas. These trees would normally be taken from the same fields as the Premium Grade but each would have a fault. That could be gaps between the whirls being too great, a bend in the trunk, too narrow or the leader is too long etc.

We only offer two sizes of these, 175cm/200cm and 200cm/250cm.

BLOCKED NORDMANN
These are Premium Grade Nordmann with the ends machine pointed to 50mm and supplied with a first grade wooden block drilled to accept the tree standing in a firm upright position. We only supply blocked Nordmann up to 175cm as above that they can become unsteady.
NOBLE FIR
is a much loved variety that also retains its needles very well, has a rich blue colour and citrus aroma but is not an easy variety to grow in commercial numbers of best quality. That makes it very difficult to source large numbers on a regular basis but we are fortunate to have limited numbers available each year in the Premium Grade from long term suppliers. We only offer Noble Fir from 150cm to 250cm because they generally lose their shape above that so are used for the supply of foliage for the florist trade.
SHAPED NORWAY SPRUCE
The traditional Christmas Tree remains popular but a better quality is demanded by the public these days which has led to the necessity to trim the trees throughout their growth in order to produce a nice shaped and bushy tree.

Because of the decline in sales of these trees in the years that Nordmann were increasing the prices went down which discouraged planting around Europe but now, because of the economic climate they are coming back into favour and prices are much more acceptable to the growers.

CONTAINER GROWN NORDMANN / NORWAY SPRUCE / FRASER FIR
These are all grown in nursery conditions in enclosed containers from plants and have complete root systems.

The advantages over the old style Pot Grown trees is that the roots do not cause damage to the pots which makes them much better for displaying by the retailer and it allows the trees to be planted out or grown on, providing they receive the correct care.
