Should I take Christmas tree back?
Oh dear... I read up on buying live Christmas trees and knew it was better to buy seed grown. However I went to a local garden centre (est. over 50 years) and saw nordmann firs for £40. The pot was wrapped in green polythene so couldn’t see soil/roots. I spoke to the owner and he assured me that the trees were carefully lifted and potted on and it would continue to grow. He said do not unwrap it but just open polythene slightly to water. I was a bit perplexed at that but trusted him (and I was rushing and really wanted one so let my heart rule my head). I’ve just opened the polythene and I feel so disappointed - the soil is like sand and doesn’t even cover the roots. I’ve attached a couple of pics
