Green Friday

Nov 23, 2012

It's "Green Friday" today and I just found myself at North Haven Gardens...figuratively and literally. Here is my tree! It's a lovely Nordmann Fir that will be going home with me today. We care lovingly and painstakingly for our fresh American grown trees and greens at NHG.


No matter your religion or choice of celebration, bringing the outdoors indoors this time of year just makes you feel good. The fragrances are wonderful so I always make sure to add garland to my entryways, banisters and use some mixed greens as table centerpieces. So whether it's a Christmas tree, Festivus tree, Solstice tree or you name it, it's just pretty. And it smells good. Nothing wrong with being pretty and smelling good. Enjoy the season!

Your tree looks wondrously fresh! I love the smell of real Christmas trees. After choosing a number of varieties over the years, Frasier firs have become our favorite, as they smell fantastic and have excellent needle retention. Your Nordmann looks similar.

Thanks Deb! Frasier firs have become less popular with our customers, for whatever reason, so I started bringing in the Nordmann’s instead. They are just lush and lovely an have excellent needle retention as well, but with a darker color than the Frasier. But they are all lovely!
