I've never ever seen a potted Christmas tree over here! Unfair!

No needles all over the floor, no fire hazard (did I mention we accidentally set fire to the tree one year? :o ), and most importantly, re-usable! Must keep a lookout for potted trees on Saturday when I'm buying a tree for a friend...

How tall are they? I'm guessing there are small ones, but are there taller ones (150cm+) too?

well, they're real, so maybe there would be some needles on the floor....

some are up to 1.5m and others are only less than .5m


reduced to 9.99 in my local Dunnes....

I meant "not PILES of needles from a dying tree on the floor", ok?  ;)
