1. Selecting the Perfect Christmas Greens:

Choosing the right Christmas greens is the first step to creating a stunning holiday display.

At Salisbury Greenhouse, our handpicked greens are the finest selection you’ll find.

2. Hydration is Key:

Just like your beloved Christmas tree fresh greens need hydration to stay merry and green throughout the holiday season. Place your greens in a container filled with water, and remember to check the water level daily. Keeping them well-hydrated is the secret to their lasting beauty.

3. Moisture Maintenance with Misting:

Maintain the freshness of your Christmas greens by giving them a light mist of water. This is especially crucial in dry indoor environments, where misting recreates the humidity these natural decorations would enjoy in the great outdoors. A little extra moisture goes a long way. 

4. Protect from Heat Sources:

While cozying up to the fireplace is a beloved holiday tradition, excessive heat can cause your Christmas greens to dry out prematurely. To ensure they remain vibrant, position them away from heat sources such as radiators or open flames, and maintain a comfortable room temperature.

5. Trim and Prune for Elegance:

Regularly trim your greens to maintain their shape and vibrant appearance. If you notice any brown or discolored areas, use sharp shears to trim them away. A well-pruned display adds a touch of elegance to your holiday decor.

6. Enhance with Fresh Accents:

To make your Christmas greens truly festive, consider adding fresh accents like berries, pine cones, or holly. These additional elements not only enhance the visual appeal but also introduce pops of color and texture to your arrangements.

7. Securing Outdoor Arrangements:

For outdoor displays, ensure your Christmas greens are securely anchored and protected from the elements. Wind and weather can quickly damage your arrangements, so take precautions to ensure they remain picture-perfect.

8. Creative Centerpieces:

Get creative and transform your Christmas greens into captivating centerpieces. Whether you choose to craft a wreath, a charming urn, or a unique tabletop display, the possibilities are endless—look to our workshops as well! Add candles, ribbons, or ornaments to create a centerpiece that’s uniquely yours.
