Ever since I have been putting up my own Christmas tree, I had always challenged myself to find a way to keep the needles on the tree.
There are so many different theories on how to keep the needles on the Christmas tree. Adding things to the water like bleach, baby aspirin, 7up, sugar all seemed to help prolong the life of the tree.
Though I tried them all, none seemed to really work. So, I started reading up on how to keep the needles on the tree. All in, I have a few hours of reading invested in this dilemma.
Enter today’s Quick Tip Friday.
Now, I don’t want to get all Christmas-tree-geeky on you, but I will give you a Cliff Notes version of my Cliff Notes reading. Truth is, needles are going to fall from the tree, but the goal is to minimize the process.
The very best thing you can do is keep your tree watered. This is first and foremost. And with everything I have read and tried, I’m going with my tried and true method that I have practiced for years, and that is to add vitamin C to the tree water every couple of days. Though some may disagree with me, I swear that this method works. It truly does help limit the amount of needles that fall from the tree.
So give vitamin C a try – 1500 mg every couple of days. No harm, no foul.
Enjoy today’s Quick Tip Friday!
