Buy Xmas tree after Christmas

Post by RugbyLad » Tue, 28 Dec 2010 12:02 pm

Hello everyone,

we came to Singapore few weeks ago and just moving to "permanent" apartment and want to buy a Christmas tree. We celebrate ortodox christmas 7th Jan but Christmas tree is more New Year Tree for us as in Russia it is main New Year accessory.
I was trying to find live tree but IKEA and FarEastFlorists already sold out all trees. May be someone knows where I can find live Christmas Tree? I almost gave up...

Thank for you help!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

If you are looking for a live tree, you could try Evergreenery in Sembawang:

11 Bah Soon Pah Rd, 769960
tel 6758 1142

They had a large shipment of air-freighted trees and sure they still have some left. They are frighteningly expensive though (live trees in general)

If you can live with a fake, then try Eric who runs a christmas shop on 805 Geylang Road. He has the largest selection of fake trees in Sing.

Good luck!

Yes they are v v expensive in SG that is for sure. Given that the 7th is after 12th night, maybe you could find one that someone else has used for Xmas and thrown out? 8-) :wink:

Otherwise try the nurseries on Upper Thomson Road. The one just to the north of Hawaii Landscape certainly seems to have a huge range of trees in the run up to Xmas.

Far East Flora had a good choice of the trees 2 weeks before Christmas. When I got there one week later they were left with some crippled remainings but I got lucky, they had a limited delivery of some fresh ones at the time I came over. In other words I wish you best luck but I would rather second JR8's suggestion - it may be easier getting a 2nd hand tree (sorry, we are not going to give away ours at this point yet and unlikely before the 7th unless all the needles are dropped down :)).
