4th December: Save a tree

Looking for a real tree? Buy a thick needled tree grown in a pot (make sure it hasn’t just been dug up with no roots and shoved in a pot, this won’t survive).  After Christmas plant it, still in the plastic pot, in a larger pot of compost so it won’t dry out as quickly, this will effectively bonsai it.  As long as you don’t forget to water it through the warmer months you can bring it indoors each year for its Christmas splendour.  The bonus of this is if you are like me and are exceptionally picky resulting in hours and hours of searching for the right tree the searching is over, you always have the perfect tree!
