We took over Ty Cerrig Christmas tree farm in 2017. Our family background is in Christmas trees and my husband Stephen, with help from us all, runs a large wholesale Christmas tree business from our family farm in Beguildy, Mid Wales. We have been involved in the growing and selling of Christmas trees for over 25 years and have enjoyed every minute of it (I am a huge strictly fan), family parties and catching up with friends, but most of all I love my tree... the centre of my family Christmas, therefore, I am delighted to be part of helping other families choose their perfect tree. We are passionate about the trees we grow & are proud to be part of other people’s Christmas preparation

To get the most out of your Christmas tree this year, follow these guidelines.
It is advisable to let a freshly cut Christmas tree stand for a day or so outside in a bucket of water before taking the tree into the house.
We recommend you treat your Christmas tree like a cut flower, cut 1/2 inch off the trunk (stem) before putting it in water holding stand.
Keep it topped up with water as you will be surprised a just how much it will drink.
Display as far away from a heat source as possible, not next to a radiator or that roaring open fire or wood burner.
Remember, the better watered and cooler you can keep it, the longer it will last.
