Christmas is coming – time to take your tree home

Topstak’s high quality, fresh Christmas trees are grown at Gower Christmas Trees near Swansea – a member of the British Christmas Tree Growers Association.

“Last year, our trees proved to be hugely popular, so we have increased our range this year to meet demand.” Topstak has a large showroom showing its comprehensive range of wood burning stoves to suit almost any budget or style. Their comfortable Gallery Café is great for enjoying a home-made light lunch, delicious home-made cakes, excellent coffee, and a glass of wine.

The trees can be viewed at the Topstak premises or purchased online at

“We pride ourselves on stocking glossy, fresh and healthy trees that will look good throughout the festive period,” says Topstak director, Adam Pedersen.

All Christmas trees need a helping hand to stay looking good throughout the festive period.

Check out Topstak’s Christmas tree guide for some top tips.

*Plan where it goes

Don’t place your tree where is can be crashed into by lively young children or festive adults, who have had too much Christmas cheer.  It is best to keep the tree away from a radiator, or any other source of direct heat. Keep the tree well away from naked flames, open fires or stoves.

*Choose the right size tree

Look at the space you have available and choose your tree accordingly.  A tiny tree in a lofty space will look odd.  Don’t be tempted by a large tree if you have a small room as may have to do some serious pruning to make it fit!

*Water your tree

A cut tree acts just like a giant cut flower and needs water.  Cut a section off the stem as this helps the tree to absorb water and use a suitable stand with water container. If your tree is container grown, it will also need water. You’ll be surprised by how much water both types of tree need, and a daily top-up is recommended.

*Keep it cool

Don’t bring your tree in until you are ready to decorate it and keep it outside so it has a better chance of looking fresh throughout the Christmas and New Year period.  According to the British Christmas Tree Growers Association, a tree will last approximately six weeks indoors, before it starts to look tired.

*After Christmas

Unless you have a container grown tree and aim to plant it out, then your tree will need to be recycled.  Most local councils provide this service.

Happy Christmas from all at Topstak!
