Christmas is a magical time of year at the nursery. Beginning in mid-November, we convert our glass greenhouse–typically one large open space–into two smaller rooms. In one, we create a beautiful display of colorful poinsettias, cheery cyclamen and other indoor plants. In the other larger room we set up our display of fresh-cut Christmas trees and install our seasonal Christmas train among a display of miniature evergreens, blooming hellebores and other colorful outdoor plants for winter containers.
At Vander Giessen’s, we carry both living and locally-grown cut trees. Some of the other items we carry include:
- Christmas cactus
- Cedar garland (sold by the foot)
- Amaryllis bulbs
- Indoor paperwhites
- Lemon cypress
- Wintergreen gaultheria
We’re also proud to carry two other must-have accessories for your Christmas tree: Cinco stands and Miracle-Gro for Christmas Trees. If you’re sick of fighting to get your tree in its stand, look no further than the easy setup of a Cinco stand. With ratcheting bolts, you can lock your tree into place in seconds. And for keeping your tree vibrant and fresh all season long, Miracle Gro for Christmas Trees will ensure that your tree continues to take up water, keeping its needles greener and fresher throughout the season.
