Perfect for a short-term, table-top Christmas tree, this conifer may not come as a perfect pyramid, but it has bundles of rustic charm and looks fab when adorned with decorations, lights or tinsel. Try to keep it in a cool, bright room and move it outside as soon as possible after Christmas, so you can enjoy it for the rest of the year. It is currently around 50cm tall (including the pot grown in) and has beautiful, blue-green, needle-like leaves. The glossy red pot measures 16cm round and 14.6cm tall.
It will create an immediate finished look for the tree, and as it doesn't have any drainage holes in the bottom, it can be placed directly onto a table without having to worry about leaking water. Simply remove the tree from the pot it has been grown in and place in the red pot for a lovely Christmas feel in the home.
This conifer is a slow-growing, broadly conical evergreen that will make an excellent specimen tree for a small, sunny garden if planted out after Christmas. As it matures it will produce oval, green summer cones that will age to brown. If you choose to keep it in a pot, then transfer it into something larger filled with ericaceous compost.
- Garden care: To maintain the plant's distinctive shape remove any misplaced or diseased branches in winter.
