How about giving your festivities an authentic touch by picking up a real Christmas tree this year? While you won’t find pine trees in Mumbai, araucaria trees come close enough.

One of the best places to get these trees from is Lila Nursery in Santacruz, which has been around for nearly four decades. Here, the araucaria trees are sourced from Bengaluru, and are available in sizes from four feet right up to eight feet. Another nursery that stocks Christmas trees is Floraland Nursery in Bandra. This nursery has been around since 1989 and also sells an array of flowering plants and succulents.

If you take care of your tree well enough (as you should), you will have some Christmas cheer throughout the year, and you won’t have to buy another artificial tree every December.

TIME: 8 am to 6 pm (Lila)
AT: Lila Nursery, Saraswati Road, Santacruz (W); Floraland Nursery, Pali Naka, Bandra (W).
CALL: 26601299 (Lila), 9820094628 (Floraland) 
COST: Rs 200 onwards (Lila); Rs 250 onwards (Floraland)
