Fresh cut Christmas greens are essential and traditional ingredients in creating the ambience of the holiday season. Fresh trees, wreaths, swags, and roping accent special places both indoors and out, as reminders of the great outdoors.
Since greens are presumed to be tough, they are often neglected. In all the wealth of care and handling information, Christmas greens seem to be somewhat overlooked. Actually, their general requirements are nearly identical to other fresh cut flowers and foliage. When cared for properly, their beauty can be prolonged.
- Keep greens away from heat and sun.
- Add water daily.
- Increase humidity through misting.
- Store greens in a cool place at night or when not enjoying them.
- Replace greens before needle drop becomes too severe.

If you have potted greens keep them moist but not wet. KEEP GREENS AWAY FROM SUNLIGHT AND DIRECT HEAT Direct sunlight and heat are the worst enemies of cut Christmas greens. Sunlight and heat will dry up and burn the greens making them look faded and dry and dead!
Christmas Can Be Green Many people like to go big for the holiday and every neighborhood has that one house with a thousand different decorations. However, even if you only make a few green choices, you are still helping. It can certainly be more work to make some of these changes, but in the end, we only have one planet.
