WITH just over a month to go until the big day, suppliers are already advertising their Christmas Trees and where to buy them.

If you've not had a chance to think that far ahead just yet, or you're not sure how you'll fit a 6ft tree in your car - fear not, as we have rounded up where to get real Christmas trees (even delivered to the door) this year.

When should you put up your Christmas tree?

Advent officially begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas, this year falling on Sunday, November 28.

However, there’s no right or wrong and if you want to put your tree up before or after Advent then so be it, we think you’re allowed to this year especially. 

How long do they last? 

With proper care, most real Christmas trees should last at least five weeks or more. That means, if you decorate for Christmas in late November, your tree should survive beyond the holiday festivities.
