HOLIDAY 2021 - COVID-19 UPDATE

We have enjoyed seeing your smiling faces over the past few months, but now that the weather has cooled and we have to keep our doors and windows closed we are requiring that all team members and customers wear a mask when indoors regardless of vaccination status. Unmasked customers will be asked to shop only in our outdoor areas and are required to maintain an appropriate distance between themselves and team members or fellow customers not in their group.

Over the last two years we have learned a lot about how we can best serve you and will continue to keep in place some of our in-person shopping guidelines. Please see our "SHOP" page for more details on these guidelines.

Happy Holidays and Stay Well!

Fresh-Cut Fraser Fir Christmas Trees

At The Plant Kingdom, we sell premium, fresh-cut Fraser Fir Christmas trees. Premium Fraser Firs are considered the "Cadillac" of Christmas trees. They are the highest quality and therefore typically more expensive than lower grades of Fraser Firs as well as other types of cut Christmas trees. Our trees come from a family farm in North Carolina. We have been buying trees from them for over 20 years because the quality of their trees is unmatchable. Right before Thanksgiving each year they cut our trees and immediately load and ship directly to us. Once they arrive hang them by size and place them in water, keeping them healthy and hydrated during their time at the PK.

We also have expert Tree Wranglers here at TPK who are ready to help make buying a Christmas tree hassle free. We display each tree for a 360 view and put each tree in water to maximize moisture retention. Once you select your tree our Tree Wranglers will make a fresh cut and bale it for easy moving and placement in your home. Don’t forget to bring your stand with you or purchase one when you’re here because our awesome wranglers will securely put your tree in the stand. Lastly, we will load your tree in or on top of your vehicle for a safe drive home.

This year we have around 525 trees in-stock ranging in size from 2ft up to 7ft. While we know many of you have purchased much larger trees from us in the past, the Christmas tree shortage is hitting hard and anything larger is just not available this year. The economic collapse in 2007 coupled with a decrease in demand in the late 90s and early 2000s caused not only our grower, but all Christmas tree growers, to plant less trees. Demand then took a dramatic turn as consumers sought out fresh cut trees in record numbers, especially over the last five years. Farmers are trying to catch up as fast as they can, but unfortunately you can’t grow a tree overnight or even a year. These trees take many years from the time they are planted to the time they make it to your home. All of these things have collided creating the shortage you are hearing about and we are experiencing. We are extremely grateful to have these beautiful trees available for you to purchase and hope they will bring you much joy this holiday season.

Christmas trees and all other holiday items are available to purchase in-store and online. Check out our instagram or visit the learn page of our website for tips to keeping your cut tree fresh. Happy Holidays!

Peak Planting Season Continues

Just because the holiday season is near does not mean the gardening season is over. Peak planting season runs well into December. Now is a great time to plant spring flowering bulbs, like tulips and daffodils, as well as hardy trees and shrubs. Take caution when planting Crapemyrtles, Hybrid Hollies, Laurels, Southern Magnolias, Cleyera, Nandina, Azaleas, and Rhododendrons. While these plants are hardy in our area, they have increased sensitivity to early freezes and extreme cold when they have been newly planted.

30% off all citrus trees, fountains, birdbaths, benches, and pedestals (in-store and online)

75% off all clearance items, including select trees, shrubs, perennials, and houseplants. (all available in-store and select items available online)
