Planting and care
When you plan on planting a Christmas tree, you need to make sure to purchase a live Christmas tree that has been sold with the root ball still intact. Typically, the root ball will come covered by a piece of burlap
Consider buying a smaller tree as well. A smaller tree will go through the transition from outdoors to indoors to outdoors again.

Caring for Christmas Tree
- Always check that the container has good drainage and some sort of saucer underneath to catch any excess water.
- It s best to check the soil every day to make sure it s not drying out
- even small trees will have an awful lot of roots and if you knock the container off you ll see just how full of roots and how little soil there is in there.
