Q.Cypress Tree

Anonymous added on December 11, 2010 | Answered

I bought a small cypress tree for Christmas with the idea of planting it outdoors in the spring, but it’s not doing too well. What can I do? I’ve followed the directions that came with it and have even repotted it in a larger pot, but it still looks sad.

Many times live trees for Christmas are sold after being stored outdoors. This means that they are already in their dormant phase and when you bring them back indoors, they get confused and start to die. As soon as you can (after the holidays), move the tree back to a cool location, like a garage or a shed so that it can go back into its dormant state.
