The Christmas season is upon us and it’s the one time of the year you can really decorate your home inside and out.

I love the Balsam Fir wreaths. They're beautiful, they really make me think of Christmas coming. And garland and roping decorate the outside of your house or maybe on your mantle or on your dining room table.

Douglas Fir is a very popular, tree they don’t cost very much because they are not sheared. Some people call them the Charlie Brown tree but they’re popular.

But our bestselling tree is Frazier Fur. The needles are soft, they are blueish green on the bottom and they are dark green on the top.

Anytime you pick any kind of tree, tug on the needles. Make sure they are in good shape and not dusty and dirty. Alpine Fur are also very, very nice. They’re tall and narrow so if you have a cathedral ceiling they don’t take up a lot of room.

Scotch Pine still might be our best seller along with Frazier Fur. They’re easy to decorate and they hold the needles. I like the tree life because when I add this to the water it makes them drink a little more and I always make a fresh cut on the tree before I put it in the water.

Flock three are very popular too. They are already on the stand they’re easy to decorate and a lot of people just love them.

Many ways to decorate your house for Christmas.

Happy Thanksgiving, and until next week, good gardening.
