Ikea's top tips for caring for your real Christmas tree? Read on:

'• Leave the tree outside or in a cold garage for a day for acclimatization. An area that provides protection from the wind and sun will help the tree retain its moisture.

• If the tree needs to be stored for several days, make a straight cut across the base of the trunk about 3cm from the original cut. This new cut will help the tree to take up water.

• The tree will need planty of water in the first few hours – approximately 3L. Check daily and supply fresh water if needed. Store the tree upright and place the butt end in a container of water.

• Before bringing the tree into the house, shake off any loose needles

• When bringing the tree indoors for decorating, make another fresh cut across the trunk 3cm from the previous cut.

• Use a tree stand that holds plenty of water. Afterwards, check daily and supply fresh water almost every day keeping the base of the tree almost in water.

• Place the tree away from fireplaces, radiators, television sets and other heat sources.'
