Why Buy a Real Christmas Tree?

Fossil Creek Nursery has been selling freshly cut Christmas trees year after year in Fort Collins. Every holiday season, Fossil Creek Nursery brings hundreds of trees in-store to sell from November through December. The varieties of Christmas trees include firs, spruce, and a wide range of pines with the lodgepole pine and subalpine fir coming from native Colorado tree farms. 
Not only are you supporting a local business when purchasing your live Christmas tree from Fossil Creek Nursery, but there are many benefits to buying a real Christmas tree.

The frost has not arrived yet along the Front Range so produce can continue to ripen. However, if you are looking to harvest and prepare this year’s crop, here are a few tips for picking your crops and to prolong your produces’ shelf life.

Coralbells

Looking to add new plants to your space? We asked a few employees at Fossil Creek Nursery and here are their top plant picks for October!

Coralbells, Zone 3-9

Coralbells are an easy-care perennial. They can grow 1 to 3 feet in height and 6-18inches wide. Coralbells are a low-maintenance plant and grow best in places that are drier with more drainage. Coralbells can have green, pink, red, and white flowers with gold, silver, and burgundy colored foliage. Coralbells attract birds and are a good plant to grow in containers.
