There is also a ‘create your own’ section, where customers can make their own original and unique décor.
“Urban Green is a one stop shop to turn a home and garden into a picture-perfect winter wonderland,” said Barry Doyle, CEO & co-owner, Arboretum Urban Green.
“We really love this time of year, it’s what so many special memories are made of. Drop in and be inspired, you won’t be disappointed.”
In addition to the classic Christmas tree, the Christmas store is promoting a wide range of festive houseplants, such as poinsettias and anthuriums.
