Benefits of Small Pot-Grown Christmas Trees

Written by Viki, Plant Lover

There are a couple of options when it comes to buying the right Christmas tree for your home. We’ll give you the lowdown on what kind of options you have to give you all the clarity you need to win at Christmas and invest in a tree that will make your home ready for Santa, chimney or not!

We believe small pot-grown Christmas Trees are the winning option. Before we get into the benefits of small pot-grown Christmas trees, let’s first take a look at the other options for your home or office.

Pot-Grown Trees vs Potted and Cut Christmas Trees

Before we explain all the benefits of small pot-grown Christmas trees, let's first compare them to their rivals: potted and cut Christmas trees. Who will come out on top?

Potted Christmas Trees

A potted Christmas tree is grown to a desired height and weight and then dugout at the root and placed in a pot. Depending on the pot’s size, the pot is sometimes filled with sand to keep the weight balanced at the bottom of the tree.

Potted trees can be replanted, although their survival will depend on a few factors, such as how much of their remaining roots remain intact and how soon after Christmas they are replanted.

Cut Christmas Trees

If you want your tree to survive past Christmas, a cut tree will not have much chance of survival given it doesn’t have roots. Whilst Christmas tree farming is often environmentally friendly - as farmers often plant more trees every year than they cut down - why not go one step further and replant your tree or keep it in its pot?

Unfortunately, without its roots, a cut tree can’t be replanted, but it’s still better than an artificial tree, in terms of overall carbon footprint, not to mention its unbeatable authenticity and fragrance!

Now you know the differences, let’s find out all the benefits of small pot-grown Christmas trees and why they're our favourite.

The Benefits of Small Pot Grown Christmas Trees

Considering a pot-grown tree is grown in the pot with a full root system, you can keep it in your garden, or home, as you would with another plant, for several years. After the festivities, your tree can become part of your home or garden - making it a tree for life not just for Christmas.

Another benefit of small pot-grown Christmas trees is that they can be reused year after year. they are good value for money as you won’t have to buy another Christmas tree the year after (that’s if you look after it correctly!). You can buy your small pot-grown Christmas tree and have a guilt-free festive accessory in your home or office.
