Non-drop needles or not, all cut Christmas trees die sooner or later. Come January they're either in a sorry, naked state at the bottom of the garden with most of the needles somewhere in your lounge. The traditional cut Christmas tree in Britain has been the Norway spruce for many years (Picea abies), which has short, bright green, pointed needles that drop quickly. In recent years, however, sales of “non-drop” varieties, such as the conical Nordman fir (Abies nordmanniana); Fraser fir (Abies fraseri) which has soft, wide and flat dark green needles; and blue spruce (Picea pungens), with glaucous or silver-blue foliage, have overtaken the Norway spruce.

THE Turkish Lira has been tumbling in 2018 just as UK tourists headed to the country’s resorts for an autumn break - meaning almost twice as much bang for your buck as last year. Here is our guide to the current state of the market, and how to get the best price when you swap your holiday cash. What is the current pound to Turkish lira exchange rate? Because of Turkey’s currency crisis, the pound is worth around 90 per cent more against the Turkish lira than a year ago. This means that those changing £500 into lira will get around £230 more than they would have in August 2017.
