Oh, Christmas tree

By {screen_name}

"Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall." ~Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas

Every Christmas you are alive should be a special Christmas, but some are more special than others. Your first Christmas married, or your grandchild's first Christmas. During these years you want to do something meaningful, that you and your loved ones will remember for years to come.

Several years ago, a family member had their first daughter and we gave them a living Christmas tree. They enjoyed the tree during the Christmas week and then proudly planted the tree right in the middle of their front lawn. As their daughter grew, so grew the tree.

Bookcliff Gardens still has a variety of beautiful, aromatic, living Christmas trees.

Fir Trees

 

 

After you choose the right tree for the area you plan to plant it in, gradually introduce your tree to the indoors by placing it in a covered porch or in the garage for three or four days.

Place the tree away from heat sources in the house, if possible, to prevent it coming out of dormancy. Leave the tree inside only for seven to ten days and slowly reintroduce it back to the outside.

This is such a special gift and you can point to it someday and say,

"This is your tree", or
"Remember when we did that?"
