Care of Root Balled Christmas Trees


These are trees that have been carefully prepared so that they can be dug up with minimal disturbance the earth round the root system. Earth is retained by wrapping the roots in sacking or similar material. The roots should be kept damp and the trees, having had the sacking removed, should be potted in moist earth. These trees should remain fresh, retain their needles, and have a reasonable chance of survival if planted out after Christmas.
