CHRISTMAS TREE PRESERVATIVE
The beauty and aroma of a real Christmas tree still cannot be matched by artificial trees. Unfortunately, a fresh tree can require daily watering or it will dry out quickly inside a heated home. With just one application, a new product called Vacation will keep a Christmas tree fresh throughout the holiday season.
Simply mix one 8-oz. bottle of Vacation with one gallon of water and pour the solution into the tree stand reservoir. Once the solution is absorbed through the trunk, Vacation will keep the tree green with less needle drop for up to three to four weeks. (Vacation can also be used on poinsettias and other potted plants.)
An 8-ounce bottle of vacation sells for about $14 at garden centers, hardware stores or online at www.naturehills.com .
