We just decorated our pagan idol today. We bought a baby little pine tree, complete with the roots. Girlfriend reckons we can keep it alive for next year on the balcony. I'm not so sure a tree that can grow 15 metres tall will survive this way - anyone know? Can we raise a bonsai spruce?
The last time we had a live Christmas tree, we did exactly that -- placed it in a bucket with potting soil so that we could use it next year. The tree survived, but by the next Christmas we elected to get an artificial tree. The kids had all moved out by then, and a live tree was just too much hassle. I planted the live tree in our yard and it has thrived. Of course, it wasn't a spruce. It's a cedar tree.
