Christmas Tree in a Pot

Step 4

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.
