lifted the Christmas tree today. this was purchased many years ago as a "root- ball" tree. after it's first year as Christmas Tree it was planted outside, in the garden but in a pot to prevent the roots spreading too far. it wasn't used the following year, or possibly 2, as we had several different ex- Christmas trees planted out, but it has been lifted and re-used before this year. this tree has not grown particularly tall yet, though it is getting rather wide, but some that we have bought as 2metre trees have grown too tall and then been chopped down rather than lifted for subsequent Christmases.
