When you get your tree home and before you bring it inside, cut at least 1 inch on a small slant off the bottom. This creates an open "wound" that the tree can take water through. As long as you keep the bottom of the tree and the entire cut area filled with water, you should get a good, solid month out of the tree before it starts to dry out and lose its needles.
it can last forever
You must water the Christmas Tree once everyday because it needs a lot of water
If you give it water mixed with 7 Up or Ginger Ale, then the Christmas Tree should last longer.
A live Christmas tree should last 3-4 weeks if kept watered. Cut off an inch or so of the trunk, soak it in a bucket of water for several hours before decorating the tree. Your tree stand should hold water and you should refresh it daily. My parents used to put sugar into the water, but not sure what the reasoning was for that.
water it on a daily basis, but dont over- water it for it will cause the tree to die. If you want the tree to last all year, try planting the tree in some mulch.
Some people put an aspirin in the water for a Christmas tree or flowers in order to preserve their freshness for as long as possible.
Persuade her to get an artificial tree which can last all of Christmas.
Place it in a Christmas tree stand and water it whenever the level of water gets low.
no pine trees last long
oh Christmas tree.
you don't water a Christmas tree unless it is a real tree it has to have a pot at the bottom to water - at the bottom of a real tree is a pot that the tree is supported by, there should be a little watering hole at the bottom, poor water in the hole until you can stick your finger and actually feel the water then you know that the tree has enough water ;)
Yes, you have to water a real Christmas tree or it will dry out, which causes the needles to fall off, and it becomes a fire hazard.
There are a few ways to keep a Christmas tree green longer. One of the easiest ways is to keep the Christmas tree in water. Also keep the Christmas tree away from direct sunlight.
Yes, most tree lots are open on Christmas Day. Even better, you will likely get a discount on your tree because you waited so long.
When you say cut and you mean real tree than NO!
You can get realistic looking man-made trees, if your looking for a live tree and how long it will last after being cut, I found Scotch pine holds its needles the longest.(tip: put a drop of bleach in a quart of water, for watering tree, keeps the fungus down.)
As a whole, that and the tree holding mechanism are called the 'Christmas tree stand'. When referring to the unit individually you can call it a 'tree stand water dish', though I've also heard it called tree pan, tree dish, or tree feeder.
You will find if you don't cut them down they tend to last much longer. you have to cut them down so that the tree will drink water ?
Just keep their base full of water. If you refill it every day, the tree should last the month.
There are a wide range of Christmas tree bags but there does not seem to be a specific popular design. The typical Christmas tree bags are a round long duffel type bag that is large enough to hold a tree.
