Deck the Halls
Pop the Christmas tunes on, light your favourite grow urban candle and get the mulled wine brewing. That’s right – it’s time to get festive and what better way to get started than cracking out the decorations!
From traditional garlands to giant disco balls, we take Christmas decorating very seriously at grow urban. This year we have searched far and wide for our Christmas offerings and hope you will love the brand-new decorations we have in stock.
So here are some of our decorative suggestions to make your home look straight out of a Christmas movie!
Choose decorations that will last longer than the run up to Christmas with some of our favourite festive plants! This year our Plant Gurus have hand-picked a selection of pot grown Nordmann Firs. These Scottish grown trees are approximately 1.2 metres in height and offer the perfect base for hanging all things festive!
Alternatively, choose a tree with a twist like the Pinus pinea ‘Silver Crest’, whose blue needles are sure to stand out from ordinary Christmas Trees. Great for those who live in small spaces, but don’t want to forgo any Christmas cheer.
Better yet, post-Christmas both these trees will quite happily live outside in gardens or balconies.
Christmas Trees are not the only way to bring some festive flair to your home. There are so many fabulous specimens available at this time of year that are favoured for their bright colours during the colder months. These plants include Schlumbergera, Begonia ‘Merry Christmas’, Amaryllis, Cyclamen and Ardisia crenata ‘Queen Star’.
East End Press is a Glasgow based printing company that offers an array of colourful decorations for your home!

Choose from the ‘Christmas Jumper Paper Garland’ or ‘Christmas Bauble Paper Garland’ strung together with strong cotton thread. Alternatively, adorn your mantlepiece or windowsill with the ‘Christmas Tree Concertina Paper Garland’, ‘Star Concertina Paper Garland’ or ‘Dove Concertina Paper Garland’.
