Most councils collect Christmas trees at the beginning of January. Contact your local council or check their website for their collection dates after the Christmas season and simply leave your tree on the kerbside on the correct day. Trees are usually shredded into chippings which are then used locally in parks or woodland areas.
Keeping it in the Pot:
Once the festive period is over, place your tree outside. You can keep it in a cover pot or its climate bag and remember to keep the soil moist.
You can also re-pot your tree if garden space is limited, ask your local Garden Centre to recommend the best fertiliser and compost to use (we recommend John Innes No 2 Potting Media), and then transfer the tree into a larger pot annually. Water-in well and keep the soil moist.
Re-potting your tree is the perfect solution if you wish to bring it indoors for Christmas year after year.
Planting in your Garden:
Dig a hole the same depth as the pot and twice as wide.
Carefully remove the tree from the growing pot using scissors (careful not to disturb the roots) and place into the hole .
