I have grown my Norfolk Island Pine from 6 inches to 6 feet tall. It is presently in great shape each year from 1 Nov. until the end of March I have located it in the greenhouse. The greenhouse is electricall heated but only when the temp.falls to 10 C. This winter it wiil be to large to go in the greenhouse. Any sugestions as to what to do now? Will it stand the winter outside if fleeced and covered in plastic. I would appreciate any help with this problem.
Thank you,

you could prune the top to make it always indoor height.

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

Thank you Ruby Hukr for your suggestion. But seeing the top of the tree producing beautiful new symmetrical growth each year I could not bring myself to prune the top off. Anyway thank you again.
