Calling Bluespruce - your expert advice required please!
this is really a question for anyone, any advice and comments are welcome, but i think this will be one for bluespruce. my daughter was given this baby christmas tree by santa yesterday when she went to see him at Altons garden centre. it's a dear little thing, very healthy looking around a foot high (at the moment) but i really know very little about them (apart from cutting them up to put in flower arrangements and i would'nt dream of doing this to Brookes little baby) so i really need all kinds of general advice please. would be good if someone could id it for me - i like to know all of the proper names of the things we grow, also what size will it get to? and how fast does it grow - really important as i only have a small garden, approx 20ft x 80ft and i have gone a wild on Acer trees and David Austin Rose bushes this year so very little room for big shrubs or trees. so is it possible to grow it in a pot on a long term basis? does it need pruning? what aspect? also is it a good one for bringing into the house in future years to decorate for christmas - in other words does it drop a lot? just any general info anyone could give me how best to look after it would be much appreciated please...
