Planting

From Early Winter TO Mid Winter

Most Christmas trees are cut, and therefore do not require planting. It is not a good idea to put cut trees in damp sand or soil, as this will prevent the tree from being able to take up water. They should stand in water. A tree with roots can be planted into a pot (if it isn't already in a pot) of compost

 

Propagating by hardwood cuttings

From Late Autumn TO Late Autumn

Choose healthy, vigorous stems about pencil thickness, from current season's growth. Trim to 10 - 20 cms. lengths, and remove all but the top 3 or 4 pairs of leaves. Choose a sunny, well-draining, weed-free site and make a v-shaped slit trench. Line the base of the trench with sand, for drainage, and place the cuttings 10 cms. apart in the trench, leaving the leaves exposed above the soil. Fill the trench back with soil, firm the cuttings in, then water well. Pot up in the following Autumn, when well rooted.
