Day 291 - sprouting conifers and inedible plums

After our Christmas trees become too big for the pot we plant them out in the garden and this time of the year there is lots of new growth activity. Plus there are plums on the prunus trees - inedible ones unfortunately.


  1. So beautiful. We don't dare plant our two Christmas trees in our small backyard. They're in pots and one of them looks sick. I don't water them often enough, and it will be sad when it dies.

  2. Our big gum trees actually stunt the growth of these conifers - so they are unlikely to grow into giants.It would be sad to see your old Xmas trees die - maybe you could find somewhere else to plant them out?
