How to Grow a NSW Christmas Tree in a Large Pot

I have been given a NSW Christmas tree in a pot and I would like to keep it in a large pot permanently. Would this be okay and, if so, which potting mix would be suitable and some tips on fertilising or special soil. I tried some years ago to grow one in the garden but had no success, although other trees have grown well. Any advice would be appreciated.

This is a lovely plant. It needs water often, but likes its roots to be relatively dry. So I would recommend mixing regular potting soil with a bit of sand or pumice to help encourage drainage and make sure to water regularly. It needs full sun to do well also.
