Recycling your Christmas tree

 12th night is getting closer, and if you chose to have a real Christmas tree this holiday, now you have to work out what to do with your conifer when you've removed your decorations.

Which Tree did you get? If it was pot grown tree, then you can quite safely put it out in the back garden, either leaving it in its pot when you've given it a water, or planting into the ground (if it's not frozen). If you got a potted tree (like us) then you might be able to get it to grow again next year, now is the time to put it out in the back garden (after a water) and keep your finAllgers crossed.

 if your tree was  are one, it's now probably starting to shed a lot of needles, and recycling it is a good idea.

Last year our 9 foot Christmas tree, with a little pruning, became three tub trugs of fantastic smelling shreddings for our compost bin.

If you don't have a shredder or a compost bin, - there are lots of places that are happy to turn your trees into mulch.

Guildford borough Council have a list of local drop off points where you can take trees between Tuesday 5th and Monday 18th January
