This miniature Christmas tree is actually a species of Pine called the Stone Pine and is native to the Mediterranean Coast. This variety is known as Silver Crest due to the gorgeous silvery green needles the plant produces. In the springtime the Stone Pine can be planted out into the garden or kept in a container in a sheltered spot all year round. Add a set of 12 miniature, glitter baubles from Gisela Graham to create the sparkliest tree around and a bronze, ceramic pot. This pot's for life, not just for Christmas...
Light conditions: Position in a warm, bright area with indirect light.
Neediness: Will require regular watering but otherwise low maintenance.
Watering: Aim to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Do not allow the soil to completely dry out. It is also very important to not over water as this can lead to root rot.
Ideal location: bedrooms, living rooms, studies, bathrooms and kitchens
Rate of growth: slow, this variety is compact but similar species can reach 12m in their natural environment, but it takes more than 50 years!
Temperature: avoid cold draughts and keep at a normal room temperature. Avoid placing near a radiator or direct source of heat as it can damage the needles.
