Want your Christmas tree or holiday wreath to stay green? Keep it outside! A cut tree will last until St. Patrick’s day if kept cold.

Jim VanHouten, of Van Houten Nursery and Farm,  in Orangeburg, New York, talks tree tips with Erin Fairbanks on Episode 268 of The Farm Report. To keep your evergreen its greenest throughout the holiday season, Jim says to select a tree cut later in the season, preferably after a frost or two, so that the needles will set.
