Real Christmas Trees in Milton Keynes

Can we put up the Christmas tree mum? When can we go and pick out our real Christmas tree?

Those are common questions asked this time of year by many kids.

Personally, I love putting up the Christmas tree and decorating it. In fact, for the past decade, it’s been a tradition to go over to my sister’s house a couple of weeks before Christmas, usually a Sunday, and help decorate theirs.

When is the best time to put up a real Christmas tree?

From what we have read from the horticulture experts in the UK, there is no right or wrong answer to this as long as you have a freshly cut tree and you look after it once it’s it’s up.

2 weeks before or the beginning of Advent?

Chris Craig from Stagsdens Christmas Trees says people are still buying their real trees a couple of weeks before Christmas Day but there is a recent change to tradition which many might follow this year.

“For the 30 years we’ve been selling trees, the majority buy them roughly two weeks before Christmas. However, in the last couple of years, we’ve sold more trees at the end of November to coincide with the beginning of advent as people’s traditions change,” Chris Craig tells Good Housekeeping.

Where can you buy a real Christmas tree in Milton Keynes?

Plus, we have details on how you can recycle your real Christmas trees in the New Year (and support a local charity at the same time) by booking a collection with Willen Hospice.
