Answer: You can bring a live tree into your home during the holidays with a little extra care. Just try not to keep it inside for longer than a week. You'll need a mixture of garden soil and potting soil in your container. The garden soil will help anchor the tree's roots so it doesn't topple when being moved. After it's been inside, you'll need to move it back outdoors cautiously. Try moving it to a protected spot, like an unheated garage for a few days before putting it out into the winter weather. Firs grown in containers for more than a few years may become stunted because their roots will be cramped. Don't expect them to become majestic beauties when they're finally planted in the ground.
