If it's potted, which I presume it really is, then the picture doesn't look very representative. The image looks much more like a pot grown tree - i.e. the tree was grown in a pot in the ground and then lifted, rather than a tree grown in the ground and then ripped up and plonked in a pot.

Still a bargain; our local tree merchant is charging £29 for roughly the same size, and our local BP garage wants £50 for an 8ft dead tree.

I'm not saying it's a bad deal, £12 for a four foot potted tree is pretty good. But it just seems a bit dodgy that they appear to be using an image of a different product.

The image used looks just like the tree I have just bought; potted in a red plastic pot. They need rapid repotting into something substantially bigger if they are to survive, whereas a pot grown tree would already be in a bigger pot, as otherwise it wouldnt have grown that tall.

No the pot grown tree I bought last year came in a pot like that. The pot is planted in the ground, and the tree seedling planted in the pot. Then when they are harvested they lift the pot cutting the roots that have grown outside the pot, but the main rootball isn't disturbed.

I've seen these at my local and they were definitely not potted . They were wrapped up in white netting with no pot

You just said it, "pot grown tree". The advert doesnt say that, it says "potted".

I think you are confusing which is better; a pot grown tree is most likely to survive beyond Christmas, although I have had some luck with pottedtrees, if enough care is taken in their extraction from the ground.

The first one I had survived over 10 years, and only died because it got blown over in a storm, and the roots ripped. I had upsized its pot several times, until it was ~6ft tall. My 2nd attempt never looked like it would survive, and my 3rd attempt was looking good until it got some sort of rotting infection during last summer, so I am hoping for better luck this year.

BTW, the llittle red potted trees from the last two attemots came from B&Q; this year I went to the farm, and the tree has a MUCH larger, black plastic pot.

The whole point of my original comment was that it is not a "pot grown tree", they say it is a "potted tree" Yet they are using an image of what appears to be a pot grown tree, which I think is misleading.

Well if that helps - I can't think think of much else to get it through your thick skull.
If you want some circular argument to go with your circular argument..

B&Q sell/sold POTTED trees in EXACTLY the same red bucket; I cannot really comment on the colour this year, as I bought elsewhere, but for the last two years THEY WERE RED.

As I also said, that pot is TOO SMALL for that size of tree, it wouldnt have grown that big, even if it had left half its secondary roots in the ground, as it is the primary root that matters, and that pot is too small for the primary root to have grown large enough.

If you bought a tree of that size in that size pot, it wasnt pot grown; and if you DID buy a tree in that size pot, that WAS pot grown, it would have been smaller.

Right, going back outside; first decent snowfall here in 18 years, so getting some tobogganing time in with my youngest.
