Covid19 Note

This guide was written before the second full lockdown was announced. I’ve decided to remove the opening dates and times because I think that’s going to be a little misleading right now and you should get the most up to date information from each shop’s website.

Please keep in mind changes to pandemic lockdown restrictions might either delay getting a real tree or that the companies below will change to delivery options. My recommendation would be to check the websites, linked below, for the most up to date information.
