Live potted Christmas trees are a popular, environmentally friendly alternative to a freshly cut tree. Enjoy the fresh scent of live evergreens inside your home or in your outdoor décor with the added benefit of being able to plant it in your garden after the holidays to watch it grow and enjoy for years to come.
To ensure your potted evergreen tree stays fresh all season, keep it well-watered and protected from harsh winds.
Keep decorations light and make sure if using lights, they give off the lowest heat possible.
When moving outside after the holidays, you will need to transition inside over 2-3 days in a sheltered area to avoid shock from the temperature change.
If the ground has yet to freeze, you can plant your tree immediately after the holidays.
If you can’t plant right after Christmas or the ground has frozen, store the plant outside in a protected area, away from wind and sun.
Note: If you bring your potted evergreen inside and plan to plant it in your garden, do not keep it indoors for more than ten days and transition it back outdoors over 2-3 days in a cool sheltered area like a covered porch or garage.
Evergreens planted in the garden from the potted Christmas tree products are not covered under our ‘Never Stop Growing Guarantee’ warranty.
