Your Boise Holiday Guide to finding the perfect Christmas Tree

To kick off our Christmas tree shopping list is North End Organic Nursery! At NEON, you will find an amazing lush assortment of healthy Christmas trees, from Douglas fir to Noble Pine ranging from all different sizes & shapes in a range of prices! What we love about NEON is that they sort their Christmas trees out by giving them a colored tag, and each color is assigned a price. This simple, yet effective method makes shopping for your Christmas tree that much easier! The wonderful employees at NEON will help you load up your tree and make sure you’re tied down and ready to go! If you are looking for large trees in the 11-12 foot range, North End Organic Nursery has you covered!

Who doesn’t love Edwards?? I’ve always loved it but have a new appreciation and love for the floris… ts that worked with my sister for her wedding. It amazes me how a 30 minute meeting discussing what she wanted and her ideas turned into the most perfect dreamy innovative flowers I’ve ever seen.
