Christmas tree stand – Pick a stand that holds at least a gallon on water. Remember to cut off about an inch from the base of the tree for it to absorb water. Make sure the cut is straight and not crooked in order for it to fit in the stand.
Water, water, water – Water your tree daily to ensure it stays hydrated and healthy. This helps the tree to smell good and stay fresh. Don’t allow the water level to go below the base of your new home in Hampton, VA tree.
Just add water – There’s no need to add soda water, bleach, salt, sugar or aspirin to the water will keep your tree fresher longer, even though you may have heard otherwise.
Safety first – Don’t put your tree close to a heat source. Turn off the lights on your new home in Hampton, VA Christmas tree and that are around your house at night prior to heading to bed. Conduct a safety check to make sure the outlets, wires and power sources are all working properly and aren’t damaged.
Location, location, location – Place your wreath in a cool place and keep it moisturized by sprinkling it with water on a daily basis. If at all possible avoid placing your wreath in direct sunlight and keep it away from heat sources as well.
