Revive drowned Christmas tree

Posted: 27/12/2012 at 19:21

I have a six year old tree which lives in a pot. Each Xmas it comes in for 10 days.

During the first batch of heavy rain in June, after a few days I noticed the top of the pot was sitting in water.

I made some holes for it to drain off, but a couple of months later it had shed all its needles.

They have not come back.

Will they or would it be dead? Five months on I would have liked to think I would be seeing signs of life.

Thanks for advice in advance

I have had an Xmas tree the last few years growing outside in a pot, each year coming in for a few days over the festive period.

Back in June when the first batch of heavy rain came down, several days later I noticed the top of the pot was just flooded in water.

A couple of holes later it drained away, but over the next couple of months it shead its needles which have never come back.

Will they come back? Been five months now, so not sure if a new season will revive the tree.

Any help appreciated.
