    Hi Everyone,

    Hope you're enjoying the hot weather :)

    Can anyone identify this tree? It was bought as a potted Xmas tree last year and I've planted it out. It's a lovely little chap. Just wondering what it is and how big it will grow.

      Welcome to GC. Rather looks like a Norfolk Island Pine, Steve. They get HUGE here!.

        Hi @SteveQ , I'm not sure what it is but it's not a Norfolk Island Pine as these are slowi growing plants used as houseplants in the UK as they're not hardy

        That certainly looks like one of the Abies family @SteveQ , and we might get a better idea when it produces some cones. Maybe then you could post another photo?
