Recycle Your Christmas Tree
We are not big fans of cutting down trees to decorate and then, after Christmas, discard. Planting a pine tree is a fantastic idea, especially if you love decorating your backyard during Christmas. You can also opt for the plastic version, a very affordable option you will enjoy for many years, or a Christmas tree in a pot, which you can replant after the celebrations.
If your Christmas is not the same without the traditional tree, don’t discard it in January! Instead, recycle it! Some people use the branches as plant supports for their broad beans or peas or even shred them, using the chippings as compost. It’s fantastic for ericaceous plants like blueberries.
