Living Christmas Trees and Helpful Hints
 
Living Christmas Trees
 
Planning to decorate a live Christmas tree indoors and then plant it outdoors?
  • Choose a smaller size tree.
  • Water it well after you bring it home.
  • Store it in an unheated garage or outdoors for two or three days before you bring it inside.
  • Keep the rootball moist and the boughs misted while outside.
  • Indoors, keep away from heating vents and fireplaces.
  • Water by scattering ice cubes around the soil surface to slowly seep down into the rootball.
  • Limit indoor time to a maximum of seven days (less if your house is very warm.)
  • Move tree outside to garage or protected spot for at least two weeks before planting in the open.

Happy Holiday
