Petersham Nurseries

Petersham Nurseries

The crème de la crème of garden centres, Petersham Nurseries is a beautiful place to visit all year round – but it’s especially magical at Christmas. Their Richmond branch sells a range of British-grown trees, as well as festive wreaths and decorations, all within a very Instagram-friendly setting filled with leafy-green plants and pretty flowers. Church Lane, Off Petersham Road, Richmond, Surrey, TW10 7AB. petershamnurseries.com

Patch

Patch Plants was founded in 2015 by Londoner Freddie Blackett, who noticed a gap in the market for online garden centres. Since then it has grown to become the go-to for stylish plants, sourced from suppliers across the country and delivered direct to your doorstep, along with tips on how to care for them. Patch sells a range of Christmas plants, including Bruce, the classic spruce tree, and Neva, a Norfolk pine. All Patch’s trees are potted, so if you look after them they can last all year-round – getting bigger and bigger each year. patchplants.com

The Chelsea Gardener

An oasis of green in the centre of Chelsea, this one will give the green-fingered among you serious garden inspiration. It stocks everything from outdoor furniture to gardening tools, and every winter it brings out an impressive Christmas tree collection, with friendly staff on hand to assist you in choosing the perfect one. It’s a great place to pick up gifts too, so you can kill two birds with one stone. 125 Sydney Street, Chelsea, London SW3 6NR. chelseagardener.com

Alexandra Palace Garden Centre

Independent gardening company Capital Gardens has been selling freshly cut premium Christmas trees across its garden centres for generations. Its Alexandra Palace spot has a wide range of sizes to choose from, but you can be sure all have strong, even branches to hang baubles off and a tall sturdy crown for the perfect tree topper. While you’re there, pick up some new decorations and lights to give your tree a sparkling upgrade. Alexandra Palace Way, London, N22 7AY. alexandrapalace.com

Tucked away in Kentish Town, the cosy Boma London Garden Centre has a huge selection of firs on offer, with sizes ranging from 3-10ft. If you’re not sure what to go for, don’t fear – knowledgable staff are on hand to guide you. 51-53 Islip Street, Kentish Town NW5 2DL. bomagardencentre.co.uk

Camden Garden Centre

The award-winning Camden Garden Centre is a big part of community life: as well as stocking a fine selection of greenery, they employ disadvantaged Londoners living in the local area. A short walk from Camden Market, the plantation has hundreds of Christmas trees to choose from, as well as a holly, wreaths and mistletoe to kit your home out with. 2 Barker Drive, St Pancras Way, London NW1 0JW. camdengardencentre.co.uk

Battersea Flower Station

Battersea Flower Station

Stepping into cosy Battersea Flower Station (note the pun) feels like stepping into a secret garden. Year-round it’s stocked full of plants, flowers, shrubs and pots, with a cute tin shed gift shop – and it’s even more magical at Christmas time. Buy everything from Fraser Firs to pot-grown evergreens, plus pretty decorations for your chosen tree. Battersea Flower Station, 16 Winders Road, London SW11 3HE. batterseaflowerstation.co.uk

Pines and Needles

Pines and Needles began back in 1995, when brothers Josh and Sam Lyle came up with the idea to load an old horse box with Christmas trees from their family farm in Scotland. Since then they have soared to success, and now sell freshly cut pines in several locations across Brockwell Park, Wimbledon, Kingston and Hampstead Heath, as well as offering delivery, installation and decoration services. Fun fact: in 2016 they sold a Christmas tree to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! Various locations. pinesandneedles.com

The Stem

The Stem

If you’re conscious of your Christmas tree’s environmental impact, London-based online garden centre The Stem will be your go-to. The ethical and eco-friendly plant shop – which plants a tree for every order and provides delivery in electric vans – has introduced a seasonal collection of pot-grown Norway Spruce Christmas trees, each sustainably grown and available for free home delivery. What’s more, rather than cheerlessly taking the Christmas tree down once the festivities have come to an end, you can lovingly plant your Spruce in the garden or keep in its pot to reuse next year. thestem.co.uk

Bloom & Wild

Short on space, but still keen to get involved with the Christmas tree festivities? Bloom & Wild have the perfect solution: adorable baby firs, standing at just 40cm tall. Super practical, the charming little trees arrive in a box small enough to fit through the letterbox, alongside a golden star garland, baubles, fairy lights and a pop up pot. They can be assembled in just a few minutes, and after Christmas you can plant them in the garden to use next year. Order online at bloomandwild.com
