How to Care for Christmas Trees in Fayetteville NC

– Make a fresh cut, about an inch at the base of the trunk to help it take up water

– Place in stand that can fit the tree and hold enough water. A rule of thumb isĀ 1 quart of water per inch of stem diameter. Check the water daily to make sure the water level does not get too low.

– Keep the tree away from any heat source, like the fireplace.

– Always turn off lights when away from the home or sleeping.

How to Care for Poinsettias in Fayetteville NC

– Place plant near a sunny, south facing window

– Poinsettias do best in room that is 65-75 degrees
