    Will it survive and go back in the garden or will that be "it" for the tree?

    It will survive and go back in the garden, then be used next year and subsequent years.

    Being in the pot should limit the growth so it should be usable for the next 5-10 years depending on growth.

    This year my daughter decorated the tree. She was proud and happy with her work.

    Excellent. That's the right way to do it. We keep trying to do it, but it never grows properly. I suspect it's because the trees sold in garden centres at this time of year aren't the type to be cultivated.

    To do it properly, they need growing from scratch.

    Full system is:

    Main Components:

    Sony KD-43XD8305 TV
    Sony STR-DN1060 AV receiver
    Sony BDP-S6700 CD/DVD/SACD/Blu-Ray player
    Latest model Sky Q box.

    Speaker System:

    Fronts - modified Celestion 15XRs (on Atacama stands and Mana mini-soundstage supports)
    Centre - Celestion UL6
    Rears - Gale (used from a complete AV speaker package).
    Subwoofer - 2 x Yamaha YST-FSW150.

    Music source and storage:

    Modified Raspberry RPi with Paul Hynes linear PSU
    2 x Seagate 5TB NAS Personal Clouds, powered by bespoke-built, fully regulated linear PSU. See thread here for details: http://theartofsound.net/forum/showt...r-Power-Supply

    The big system is upstairs in another room. Sounds great, especially with movies!

    Marco.
    The Celestions look rather nice Marco, I bet they sound sweet.
