A living Christmas tree
Flower delivery sustainability enterprise, Floraly is back with locally sourced Christmas trees.
As we grapple with the pros and cons of real and fake Christmas trees, flower delivery sustainability enterprise Floraly has provided us a third option – a living tree available by mail. Handy for small apartments or for Christmas lovers without transport options, Floraly’s “Christmas in a box” supports farmers, the environment, and a circular economy. Floraly trialled their Christmas tree in a box idea last year, sending miniature picae glauca trees (a compact conifer spruce, also known as “Christmas Star”) all over the country. After a successful uptake, they are offering this beautiful home addition again this year. The locally sourced trees stand 60cm high, and come with fairy lights, decorations, and decorative pot. And with a little love, this living Christmas tree can be a continual feature for years to come – and it will be bigger each year!
