How do you keep Christmas tree longer?
Besides the normal common sense thing like don't let it dry up etc.
Please share your experience.
I keep on trying, this is what I did this year...
got one from IKEA 2 weeks ago and buried into the snow, 2 day's ago I dug it up and cut the end back a little,..this will also help that the tree can suck up water better.
I then put it into the bath tub, [stump down] with water to hydrate. After about a half day when tree is thawed out I poured water over several time with a bowl, [tree still wrapped].
Repeat 3 or 4 times a day. We then put the tree up in about a day and a half. Tree is really looking good and hydrated, sucking up water pretty good.
In previous years we have tried to add pop, like gingerale etc. didn't seemed to help.
