Christmas is a quiet time in the garden, but it’s a time when greenery can have a special symbolism – winter will end!
From the best Christmas trees to beautiful house plants and something for the birds we’ve got Christmas wrapped up at F Tate and Sons.
We sell the most competitively priced Christmas trees in and around Ripon, and you can always be sure of a quality product at Tates.
Real Christmas trees
Our cut trees come in all shapes and sizes, from 4ft to 12ft tall, so come and find the perfect fit for your home. These are Nordmann Fir non-drop trees, with attractive foliage and needles that aren’t sharp and will stay on the tree as long as possible.
We sell our trees straight from cutting, picking the best specimens by hand, so you only have to worry about getting your decorations up.
We’ll wrap your tree up in a net for a safe journey home. Ask us about local delivery if you pick out a monster.
If you’d like a living, pot grown tree that you can plant out after Christmas – a great way to get the kids interested in growing – and enjoy for many years to come, we also stock potted, growing trees. These post grown trees are around 3 to 4ft in height and if you need any growing tips just ask us.
To make the most of these beautiful trees, take a look at our selection of Christmas tree stands.
We also sell Christmas tree lights and other seasonal lights to bring your tree sparling to life.
Living Christmas colour
This is the time of year to give, and we have a fabulous range of houseplants that will bring some welcome colour to windowsills and mantel pieces this Christmas.
From amaryllis to poinsettias we have all the Christmas classics, and lots of other plants for winter colour and lasting garden greenery, many in attractive collections and settings.
Perfect presents all round the home
We have a wonderful selection of Turkish and holly wreaths in all shapes and sizes.
Take a look at our new gift selection: doormats, candles of all sorts, and wonderful pots to make the most of your houseplants and cut flowers.
If you’ve got a gardener in the family, we can help you find just the thing they need this Christmas, with a huge selection of tools, equipment, and accessories.
If you can’t make your mind up, grab a voucher, one of our own or a National Garden Gift Voucher.
Don’t forget our feathered friends!
This time of year can be tough on garden wildlife.
You can give your bird population a helping hand with our feeds and seeds, feeders and shelters. These also make great presents for any gardener and wildlife loving kids.
A world of winter!
We can’t guarantee the snow this winter, but we can guarantee you a quality selection of sledges to get you slip-sliding away with the original winter sport!
Nothing is more welcome and welcoming than a real fire at this time of year. We’ve got good value, high-quality firewood, logs and kindling.
Safe and sound
Snow shovels make quick work of the white stuff when it’s in the wrong place. And rock salt will keep paths, drives, steps and pavements ice-free and reduce slipping hazards.
Your Christmas calendar
We’re open every day until Christmas Eve, when we take a well-earned break into January.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for the re-opening date and of course, for the latest news and offers.
Happy Christmas from everyone at F Tate and Sons!
