Frenchay Christmas Tree Farm is often in the news…! In December, we sometimes appear on BBC Radio Bristol, who like to phone us for a chat about all things Christmas tree related. Sometimes, the local tv news come to present the weather forecast from our farm! Here are some of press articles we have featured in:
“Trees for Christmas” from RHS magazine The Garden
In December 2019, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) asked Simon to write an article about Christmas trees, published in their magazine The Garden. There is a lovely plate illustration of branch samples taken from our own trees. Click here to view the pdf. It will give you a different insight into Christmas trees growing, and the options available for Christmas tree afficionados. Since writing that article, we have been trialling a new species of Christmas tree: Abies bornmuellieriana (Turkish Fir) and so far the results are encouraging although in appearance it is not that different to the Nordmann Fir.
THe Voice Newspapers
For quite a few years now we have been publishing an article in Bristol’s’ Voice newspapers.
