'Tis the season to rearrange the furniture and make room for this year's Christmas tree — and Batsford Arboretum has an impressive selection of freshly cut festive firs for sale, with sizes and varieties to suit all manner of homes and lifestyles.
The popular attraction near Moreton-in-Marsh has a wide range of premium, real Christmas trees for sale, from traditional Norway spruces to Nordmann firs, which are popular for their needle-retaining qualities.
There are also a number of pot-grown trees available, including Nordmann and Fraser firs, as well as the Serbian spruce picea omorika, for something a little different.
With some trees reaching up to four metres tall, there's a diverse selection to choose from, ranging in price from £23.50 to £180.
Plus, new for this year, Batsford Arboretum has introduced a stock of premium quality artificial trees in its garden centre, designed to closely replicate the texture, colour and structure of the real thing — but ideal for those who'd prefer something a little more low maintenance. Prices start from £103.
Visitors can also browse Batsford's selection of hand-crafted Christmas wreaths, with 12 or 14 inch options for hanging proudly on the front door; with holly, mistletoe and one-of-a-kind decorations available, too.
Plus, there's festive fun for children, who can join the Big Batsford Elf Hunt to find hidden Christmas characters around the arboretum – with the opportunity to win a prize if they find them all.
