“Trees for Christmas” from RHS magazine The Garden

In December 2019, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) asked me to write an article about Christmas trees, published in their magazine The Garden. There is a lovely plate illustration of branch samples taken from my 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, I 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.
