Care for your pot grown Christmas tree

  • Keep your tree outside until you are ready to decorate it.

  • When you take it in make sure that you place it away from direct heat.

  • Water regularly, not allowing it to dry out.

  • After Christmas either plant the tree out in your garden, or else re-pot it into a larger pot.

  • Remember your tree will respond better if you feed it during the growing season.

  • When taking the tree out after Christmas do not put it straight out into an exposed situation — instead put it into a garage or similar situation to allow it to acclimatize.

Repotting your pot grown Christmas tree

  • Best to repot in early Spring, but can be done any time of the year.

  • Repot into a pot that is at least 10cm (4ins) larger in diameter.

  • Use a multipurpose potting compost

  • Add 10 - 15% garden bark mulch to aid drainage.

  • When weather warms up in Spring, feed liquid fertilizer weekly.

  • Make sure that tree is kept well watered and is not allowed to dry out.
