Goldcrest Spirals

Hi All,

I've purchased two of these tress but id like to plant them quite close to my house (within a ft). Do I need to be concerned about the roots and what they could do?

Could I sink the pot into the ground to make it look planted whilst containing the roots within the pot?

Thanks in advance

    You could plant it like that , but you would have to remember to water it regularly.  Even out of a pot, up close to the house wall will probably need additional watering.  As to what the roots will do it depends. If your house is modern on a concrete bed, that is unlikely to do any damage. If it is 300 year old and has inadequate foundations, it might.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
