Christmas Tree in a Pot
One of the great pleasures of Christmas is decorating a real tree, so why not plant a living tree in a pot? A small tree makes a great table decoration. You can care for it through the seasons and reuse it for several Christmases to come.

Water the plant thoroughly to ensure that all the compost is wet. Allow to drain, and then bring it indoors to decorate. Tip: Don’t keep the tree indoors for longer than a month: the warmth and light may encourage it to break dormancy. Feed and water it regularly, re-pot into a larger container in early spring and add some slow-release organic fertilizer, such as comfrey pellets.
