Buying Christmas Trees in pots is a better and more sustainable way of celebrating Christmas.  BUT there are a few tips to make sure your purchase is more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

  • Check the label on the pot as some trees are not expected to live for long or to be planted after use.
  • Avoid buying trees that have been grown in large fields, their roots will be used to a bigger area and when they are put in pots it can cause root damage.
  • Best type of potted Christmas trees are ones grown from seed in a pot rather than dug up.
  • The more locally grown the better!
  • Don’t keep trees in the house for longer than 12 days and keep in a cool room.

EVEN BETTER – Use large household plants as an alternative to Christmas trees!
