Christmas is behind the corner and it's time to think about Christmas tree. Which one you prefer? Real or artificial, potted or cut, spruce or fir....
Last six years I buy potted tree and after Christmas I plant them around my cottage. I also prefer spruce.

    • How many years have you been doing this? I'm imagining a forest around your cottage😊
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    @B3, I'm doing this only last six years, but every year I try to buy different sort so I have blue spruce, frasier fir and korean fir.

    Hi Runny. It's lovely feeling when you don't waste tree and it keeps growing in your garden. Ofcourse, we all need space for doing that.

    Always real. I bought a potted Nordmann fir last year from a GC - proper rooted tree, not a stump stuck in a pot. I potted it on after xmas last year and it’s looking good and healthy. Hopefully should last a few more years before it gets too big to bring in the house.

    I've got this mimimalistic wire bare-looking tree with LEDs built into the tips of the twigs. Had it four years but this year I'm eyeing up this little potted Picea omorika at Sainsbury's. They look very nice.

    That looks amazing MU. I hope so that my will be so high and pretty, especially covered with snow.

    @WillDB, that sounds lovely. My opinion is, go for it.🌲

    Here is my little spruce from last Christmas planted shortly after holidays. It's growing nicely whole year.

    I've got a artificial tree, it lasts a long time. I found that real ones can't take the weight of the lights and baubles.
    But it's nice to be able to plant a real one afterwards if there's room. If we haven't it will be nice to plant it somewhere. :)
