Buying a potted tree suitable for a Xmas tree makes sense. The plant can be enjoyed all year round, as a patio or potted plant for 11 months of the year and decorated for the other.
To keep a Living Xmas tree looking gorgeous:
Don’t allow to dry out when inside. Place a large saucer underneath. The plant won’t waterlog in the short time its inside.
When it’s time as a Xmas tree has finished, acclimatise it gradually to full sun again. Keep in shade for a few weeks and wait until a cool change before placing in full sun.
Spray on snow will cause the foliage to die back.
TIP: When you give a living gift include a bottle of Seasol and PowerFeed with it. This will help keep the plant healthy and flowering through summwer
