Help support Caracole this holiday season!

Christmas Tree Seed Sale

Sadly, we will NOT have fresh-cut Christmas trees to offer this year. It turns out, the tree shortage has finally caught up with us.

We have worked with several wonderful vendors over the years, but as our order has never been considered large by tree sale standards, the farms fill their large orders first. With less trees available, there were simply none left for us this year.

Instead, our trees this year will be tiny. Like, REALLY tiny. Think seedling tiny.

While we won’t have the large, put-in-your-living-room, oh-they-smell-so-good Frasier Firs you have come to expect from us, we’ve got something else that can help YOU celebrate the holidays and help US carry out our mission. That is, if you are patient…

Introducing the Caracole Christmas Tree “Seed” Sale!

This festive, earth-friendly ornament is a great holiday gift that will bring joy year round! Each ornament contains a complete kit to grow a tree!

Buy your own Douglas Fir Blossom Kit for $25 and help support Caracole’s mission!

How It works

Simple to Grow

Open the ornament, add peat and seeds, then watch your tree grow!

  • Each $25 blossom kit ornament comes with everything required to start growing your very own Douglas Fir tree—seeds, peat pellets and a biodegradable ornament that can double as the planter!
  • This environmentally conscious ornament is made using a bio-based PLA thermoplastic, which is a renewable and biodegradable material.
  • The ornament is packaged in a natural gift box that includes detailed instructions.
