Planted in Kit Hill natural, chemical free compost.

a gift to give, that recalls a loved one for years to come …

a gift to stay, to grow with and enjoy year after year…

IN KEEPING WITH ALL THINGS INDULGENT & ETHICAL, NATURAL & HOMEGROWN (AND OF COURSE little & tiny), WE HAVE STARTED MARKETING OUR LONG AWAITED “BABY LIVING CHRISTMAS TREES”, WHICH WE ARE NURTURING HERE ON THE SMALLHOLDING.

A mixture of this year’s selection of Baby Living Christmas Trees: Nordman Fir, Canadian Blue Spruce, Grand Fir and Norway Spruce.

Cared for, these baby firs & spruces will grow into majestic trees that can live for 300 years. Kept potted and cared for properly, living Christmas trees can typically grow 6’-8’. They can be brought indoors and decorated year after year. You can record their growth as you  would with children and like you favourite Christmas ornaments (perhaps more-so as they are living), they are likely to become an important addition to the household, cherished each Christmas season… and indeed throughout the year.

Baby Living Christmas Trees (various sizes about 7” – 13″): £6 / 2 for £10, direct from The Tiny Little Farm Shop. (£9 including packaging and delivery from www.utopia-smallholding.co.uk)

Living Potted Christmas Tree: Choose a spot indoors away from direct heat. Keep soil moist, but not soggy. After New Years, place outside until next year; choosing a sheltered spot until established. Repot into increasingly larger pots every few years as tree grows. With proper care a potted tree can typically grow 6’-8’.

Outdoor Christmas Tree: For a large full size tree, replant outside once established… Keep in mind coniferous trees planted directly in the soil can become VERY large.

*Most coniferous trees prefer slightly acidic – acidic, well drained soil. A complete fertilizer supplying nitrogen, phosphorus, & potassium, such as 10-8- 6, is often suggested.
