Christmas at Gotherington


From the end of November, it’s all about Christmas at Gotherington Nurseries. We sell three types of freshly cut Christmas Trees in various sizes.  We have:  The Nordman Fir, which will hold its needles well and tends to be quite bushy; the Fraser Fir, which holds its needles well but tends to be narrower than the Nordman and the traditional Norway Spruce, which holds its needles less well but tends to be cheaper to buy.

The secret to the cut trees keeping their needles longer is to ensure that the tree is placed in a container which will hold water. Ideally the tree should be placed away from a direct source of heat such as a radiator, log burner or open fire.  Although it is advisable getting your tree early to ensure you have the best choice, keep it outside until you are ready to put it up to keep it looking at its best.

We will net your tree so that it is easier to transport home.

We sell a wide variety of holders for your Christmas Tree ranging from plastic containers to cast iron.

In conjunction with Tewkesbury Borough Council, we will recycle your Christmas Tree during the first two weeks of January, within our normal opening hours. See posters for details.


From early December, we sell freshly made wreaths, some of which are made on site by our Nursery Team.  These range from plain wreaths to decorated wreaths, from holly wreaths to fir wreaths and of course those made on site are very individual.

In the shop, we have a range of Christmas products such as lights, decorations and Christmas houseplants too. Don’t forget, there are some great gift ideas too.
