Pot Growing Christmas Trees

An experiment to grow smaller Christmas trees, 

These are Fraser fir, my thoughts are to try in the ground then dig up and put in pots when ready for sale at ideally year 3, these are planted through the mypex to protect from weeds, growing like this they wont be lacking in water, i can still feed them, there is enough room between them for shearing etc

or grow in 5L pots from day one, ideally they should be ready for sale at year 3, with pot growing they need lots of water, still need to feed them every year, in pots they are easier to handle when ready for sale as they are already in the pots
