Rediscover the True Magic of Christmas

Monday, December 10th, 2012 | Uncategorized | No Comments

There’s no denying that the Christmas holiday is a magical time of the year when families and loved ones gather to create a lifetime of memories. Yet Christmastime has lost some of its magic throughout the years with the focus of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and the substitution of artificial for genuine.

What am I referring to? I remember Christmas as a child with all the scents and authenticity of Christmases as they had been celebrated for many generations past. Today, in the interest of time, we’ve replaced authentic holiday trees and wreaths with fake, vinyl substitutes, and no scented candle can replace the fresh, out-of-doors experience of aromatic Fraser Fir and balsam.

The principle reason most people select artificial trees is to rid themselves of falling fir needles. But most of this can be reduced significantly with a few easy steps.

First, select only a fresh-cut tree. Many trees sold today have been cut for a month or more. Second, shake your tree rigorously to remove needles before bringing your tree indoors. Third, cut about 1” from the bottom of the trunk and keep the tree watered. No additives are required. Finally, wrap the tree with plastic or an old sheet at the end of the season for removal out-of-doors.

At Tellico Landscape & Garden Center, we purchase only fresh-cut, premium, #1 grade Christmas trees, and we transport them personally from the grower to our garden center on the day the trees are cut. Why not rediscover the magic of Christmas you remember as a child with a genuine Fraser fir Christmas tree this holiday season? Insist on fresh cut.

In addition to offering the freshest cut Christmas trees available, we also feature fresh, double-sided wreaths, which will fill your home with fresh fir scents as well. We also have balled and burlapped Norway Spruce and Canadian Hemlock trees, which can be planted outside after the holidays.

Also, don’t forget that December is still a great time to plant trees and shrubs or have us design a landscape plan for your home.

On behalf of all of us at Tellico Landscape & Garden Center, we thank you for your patronage and wish you and your family a joyous holiday season.
