The trees, renowned for their excellent quality, are selected with great care to ensure that each and every customer is delighted with their selection.
Tim Clapp, Head of Horticulture for The Garden Centre Group, said, “At The Garden Centre Group, only the best quality cut and potted trees are selected so that they can look as fresh and festive on the 6th of January as on the day they were brought home.
“We have pledged to source only the finest Christmas trees and plants and the Group is committed to providing its customers with only the best plants year round, sourced locally whenever possible.
“All of our poinsettias are British-grown, with over 50,000 grown in our own nurseries. In fact, 90% of all our plants are now sourced from within the UK.”
The Group also offers very realistic ‘feel real’ artificial trees in a wide variety of shapes and sizes for those who prefer them, including pre-lit versions to take all the anxiety out of creating a wonderful Christmas atmosphere.

Customers can receive in-centre advice free of charge on topics such as selecting the best tree and caring for it at home. Tips will include advice on how to improve air circulation, how to prevent the tree from overheating in the middle, and how to avoid needle loss.
