The first to spot the bargain was a deal-hunter in Camborne in Cornwall, who revealed that all the live trees had been slashed in price to 10p. They picked up a six-foot tree yesterday evening, for the bargain price. The deal was verified by another user, who dashed down to take advantage.
They said: "Thanks for posting. I was straight down there 10 minutes after you posted and got myself a really nice tree for 10p. I was expecting to find just a few scraggy trees let but there was a really good selection. There were also lots of people running from their cars into the store looking like they'd seen your post too!"
Other deal-hunters in the community shot off to their nearest B&Q, and discovered some brilliant discounts. Savvy shoppers found trees being given away for free in Bournemouth, and being sold for £1 at B&Q in Longwell Green, Great Yarmouth and Farnborough. Chester B&Q, meanwhile, was selling smaller trees for £5 and larger ones for £10. Derby was selling them all for £5, and Wandsworth for £2.50.
If you don't manage to get your hands on a 10p tree, it's always worth making a note for next year, so you know to pop into B&Q after work on the 19th December to pick up a Christmas tree for next to nothing.
