Decorate Outdoor Containers with Fresh Cut Christmas Trees
Extend your holiday décor into the landscape with a fresh cut tree secured in one of your outdoor containers.
Use a weather-proof container with drainage holes. Fill it with soil and top with some stones or bags of sand for added weight.
Further secure your trees if needed with guy wires anchored to the ground or nearby structures.
Use outdoor energy efficient lights set on a timer to save energy, including yours.
Continue adding fresh fruit and provide water throughout the winter to keep the birds coming.
A bit more information: Keep fruit fresh and avoid spoilage by adding it in small quantities throughout the winter. You can place it in small decorative containers hung from the branches.
