Christmas at the Plant Centre

Christmas at the Plant Centre

Throughout winter season we will be stocking an exceptional selection of celebratory seasonal plants and Christmassy gifts.

Christmas Trees at the Plant Centre, Compton Acres, Poole Dorset

Perfect Plant Gifts

Strolling along the covered walkway in our Plant Centre you can browse for popular winter flowing Camellias, Skimmia Japonica with their gorgeous red berries, eye-catching winter bedding plants, striking Cyclamen, elegant Hellebores, beautifully scented Sarcococca and many more besides.

In late November, we will also be taking delivery from Wales of splendid British grown Christmas trees.

A Compton Acres Christmas

Providing a great experience for the family, choose your tree with a lovely complimentary glass warm mulled wine (strictly for the grown-ups) at weekends, whilst the little ones watch their handpicked tree being wrapped and prepared for home. We are open 7 days a week so if you prefer a quieter time to choose your tree, come along between 10 am and 5 pm on weekdays.

Festive Firs

This year spectacular non-drop Nordmann firs will make up the majority of our selection with a larger range of potted trees available for those who would like to plant their tree after Christmas. Fraser firs will be available but please come early to secure one.

You can find a perfect Christmas tree for you all the way from 3ft up to 12ft. We have introduced 10ft trees this year by demand. These are impressive looking trees for hallways and entrances whilst still being manageable. To complement the growing trend for larger trees we will be well stocked in the most popular size category between 7 to 9ft.

As always, our team help in any way we can to make it a fun experience for the whole family with every need covered from tree stands in different sizes and colours to advice on keeping your tree healthy and of course taking it to your car for you.
