Does anyone know where I can get a real Christmas tree this year in SE1? I tried the Cut and Lower Marsh today with no success... Borough Market has some but they were charging >£50 for a 5ft tree, seems excessive!
I've not got a car so don't fancy the prospect of B&Q on the old kent road...
try east street market? I got wreaths and garlands there last year, and they were quite fresh and reasonably priced. I seem to recall seeing some trees as well... Havn't been back to get the greenery yet this year.
We bought ours at Roots & Shoots, not quite SE1 but worth a look/ring them, they are in between Walnut Tree Walk and Fitzalan Street SE11. We bought a 1.8m tree for £37.
No connection etc, happy with our tree!
I gave up on trees many years ago as I couldn't deal with the guilt of seeing them abandoned so soon after the event. Thinking laterally I wondered whether it mattered what was covered in lights, tinsel, etc and so I used an old school chair. Festooned with a collection of three assorted types of lights, chunky tinsel, fake snow and ice it looks absolutely the business and proved a major success with friends. On a practical note it provides a three tier platform for presents between the floor, the seat and leg supports.
