Forever Christmas Trees
We need more ornaments!The great debate continues... what's best for the environment?
Buy a fake tree?
Buy a live tree?
Well, they're not exactly 'live' if they're leaning against a chain link fence in the Christmas tree lot at your local supermarket.
There is another option.
Buy a REAL, live tree!
Yesterday, I decked out our Christmas tree from 4 years ago. We bought her live and then transplanted the tree into the garden, the following spring. This year, she's sporting some festive twinkling lights.
- If you opt for a truly live, potted evergreen keep it in the house for a maximum of ten days.
- Set it outside, in the pot, in the shade, through the rest of the winter. (Water if there is no snow cover.)
Our tree doesn't look anything like this!
Good 'Christmas trees' for gardens:
Norway Spruce is a popular cut Christmas tree but not so great in the garden. She drops her needles all year long.
