She won’t need watering very often. Just water her if the top two inches of soil feel dry.

About albies nordmaniana
The Nordmann fir has been the nation’s favourite Christmas tree for years, chosen for its wide, bushy shape (all the better for holding more decorations) and gentle pine scent. It’s the classic Christmas tree.
Our trees are potted, with their roots intact. This is for two reasons. First, it guarantees your tree will stay fresh and green all through Christmas and won’t drop needles, because it’s still very much alive, unlike cut trees. It’s also better for the planet. A potted tree can be put outside after Christmas and be used again and again, year after year. If you don’t have space for your tree outside, we encourage you to donate or recycle it. Your tree will arrive wrapped in netting, which is biodegradable.
Did you know?
Nordmann firs can grow to 85 metres tall in the wild. You’d need some pretty long fairy lights to decorate that.
