Expert Advice and Tips for the Perfect Christmas Tree
At Sliabh Bloom Christmas Trees, we have been growing trees for almost 40 years!! We've seen it all in that time, and learned what it takes to grow the best Christmas Trees for the Irish market.
The Answers You Need
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
It's all outdoors so make sure to wrap up warm and wear appropriate footwear.
ARE DOGS ALLOWED?
Of course! Your furry friends are more than welcome, but they must be leashed at all times and please ensure to clean up after them.
CAN I CHOOSE MY TREE AND COLLECT IT LATER?
If you want to enjoy the local scenic walks in Glenbarrow before heading home we will happily set your tree aside for you to collect on your way home. Make sure to come during daylight hours if you want it freshly cut!
WILL IT COST EXTRA TO CHOOSE MY TREE FRESH FROM THE FIELD?
No. There is no difference in price if you choose to have your tree cut fresh from the field or if you choose a pre cut tree.
ARE THERE A LIMITED NUMBER OF TREES TO CUT FRESH?
We haven't run out yet! There are plenty of trees available to have freshly cut. BUT you must come before 4.00pm to have your tree freshly cut. It is important that there is adequate light available for our helpers to cut your tree. If it is partciularly dark and foggy then only pre-cut will be available.
DO YOU SELL ROOT-BALL TREES
We do not sell large root-ball trees but we do have small trees between 1-3 foot that are potted and ready for replanting. You can continue to replant your tree into a larger pot each year as it grows or you can plant it directly into the ground. It's a very thoughtful long-lasting gift for anyone.
DO YOU DELIVER?
No, we do not deliver, but we will wrap your tree in netting (free of charge) to make it easier for you to transport.
BEST TIME TO GET A REAL CHRISTMAS TREE?
One of our most popular questions, when should I put up my real Christmas Tree?
We recommend no more than 6 weeks before Christmas. It's also very important to keep your tree watered and away from direct heat. By doing these things, you'll have a beautiful tree right through Christmas 🎄
