We have had a range of twisted tree gifts on our website for quite some time now, and they are easily one of our most popular choices to send as a gift.
We think this modern take on a classic tree provides customers with the choice to be slightly more eccentric in their choices, rather than just going for a standard tree the can go for a modern ‘twist’. They make the perfect unique and eco gift idea!
How are Twisted Stem Trees Grown?
Growing a twisted stem tree isn’t all that difficult, although we say leave it to the experts! When the trees are very young and supple they are twisted around small supports and naturally they start to grow around the support. Once the support is removed the tree will carry on to grow in the same way and this transforms the straight tree trunk into a corkscrew or spiral shape.
How are Double Twisted Stem Trees Grown?
The double corkscrew is two saplings planted very close together and ‘braided’ with one another in the early months of growth, this requires a slightly more of a watchful eye. However, after a while, the tree follows the braiding naturally.
You can see the stunning double twisted stem featured on the large Double Corkscrew Bay Tree Gift. This tree is particularly popular to send as an eco wedding gift as the double spiral is symbolic of two lives coming together as one.
Twisted Trunk Trees as Gifts
Tree2mydoor thinks that if you are looking for a more outstanding gift for a special occasion or something to really make your family and friends say ‘wow’ it has to be a twisted trunk tree.
They also provide a double use, as the twisted bay tree or twisted olive, are not only useful for the good looks and charm but can provide much entertainment in the kitchen. A Bay leaf is a popular staple in a lot of eastern dishes. The olive provides a Mediterranean staple as you all know!
We asked the tree2mydoor founder, Gareth why he first fell in love with the twisted stem trees:
"It must be 6 or 7 years ago now. (Wow, that makes me feel old!) The twisted stem Olives caught my eye because they looked really quirky and different compared to the usual standard olive trees with straight stems that you can buy from your local garden centre.
My favourite twisted stem tree has to be the Twisted Olive Tree Gift, our Olive trees look great year-round, the leaves are hardy and they look very stylish, particularly in pairs outside a front door.
Olive is traditionally the tree of peace which means it makes a lovely gift idea to friends and family. We firmly believe that the new additions to our twisted trees range will be a big hit with our customer base."
Due to the popular demand of our twisted stem trees, Tree2mydoor have decided to introduce more to our range. We wanted something bigger and better so opted to get some new larger sizes, both our Large Twisted Bay Tree Gift and Large Twisted Stem Olive Tree feature the beautiful corkscrew spiral stems on a much large scale.
These unique gifts are great to give for most special occasions, the corkscrew bay trees look fantastic in a pair either side of a door and their fragrant evergreen leaves look stunning year-round. Whether you’re looking for a unique birthday gift, wedding gift or an eco-friendly Christmas gift, you can’t go wrong with a twisted trunk tree.
