  • Aldi has bought back its real Nordmann Fir Christmas trees –while stocks last. Grown sustainably on a plantation in the heart of Aberdeenshire, the Aldi Christmas trees are priced from just £14.99.

    Aldi’s, small potted, medium and large Nordman Fir Christmas trees are available in-store while stocks last! Last year Aldi saw record sales of the British grown trees, with sales up by 25 per cent.

    This year the store expects the trees to sell-out even faster thanks to the real Christmas trees being half the price of competitors such as B&Q.

    This is the seventh year that Aldi has partnered with Lovania Nurseries, who will be supplying approximately 54,000 Nordman Firs in the lead up to the festive period.

    Aldi’s hand-selected Nordman Fir Christmas trees will return to stores across the UK, with prices starting at only £14.99 for a medium tree (5-6ft) and £24.99 for a large tree (6-7ft).

    New for this year is the Pot Grown Nordman Fir Christmas Tree priced at £18.99. The little tree stands at just 3-4 ft high, it is small but mighty and can be looked after in the garden until next year. However, if space is still tight Bloom & Wild’s mini Christmas trees are a great alternative.

    Nordmann Firs are famous for their strong needle retention, beautiful fresh scent and big, bushy branches. These qualities make the bargain Aldi trees outstanding value.

    ‘Thanks to our long-standing relationship with Lovania Nurseries, Aldi customers will soon be able to pick up a real Nordman Fir Christmas tree at everyday low prices.’

    ‘Each tree is handpicked by the experts at Lovania before being carefully wrapped and delivered to store, so that our customers can be sure they are buying a tree of the highest quality, with that nostalgic fresh pine scent that is so firmly associated with the festive season’ said Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Director, Aldi Scotland.

    Caring for real Nordmann Fir trees

    ‘Nordmann Fir trees take at least seven years to grow, compared to around five for a Norway spruce.’ explains Lee Chambers, Head of Sales at Lovania Nurseries. ‘These extra few years allow the tree to develop its beautiful, dark green foliage and strong branches.’

    To maintain the life-span of your Nordmann Fir, experts recommend cutting between one and two inches from the trunk of the tree. Do this as soon as you reach home, and stand it in a bucket of water overnight. By doing this you’ll allow for moisture to reach the branches much quicker. Helping to keep it fresher for longer.

    With Christmas decorating ideas already well underway these discounts couldn’t be better timed! Pick up your bargain real tree this week in Aldi.
