    My little tree is not much more than a stick in a bucket. I'll try to remember to take a photo of it. It's been awhile since I took one.

      Hi @Zigs , look up how to make a " Cloud Tree " , I reckon you could make a stunning one out of that . Looks like a Pine.

        This is my little tree. It would be nice to get it in the ground to start it off. I was thinking in the spring I could plant it in its bucket and then shelter it again over winter. Does that make any sense? If I do plant it out I will have to dog proof it first.

          @Tetters I was told it was a crab apple. It was free. It was effectively a stick in a pot. I put it in a bigger pot. I have no idea whether its taking or not.

          Apple trees are tough, and will not need to be inside - or in a pot next year. You`ll soon see if it's ''taken'' in the spring when the leaves appear, and then if I were you, I`d plant it out where you want it in the garden (without the pot)
          I am actually planting trees out now while they are dormant, and before the ground freezes again.
