I've bought a little potted Xmas tree

Impulse purchase at a garden centre, such a bargain at £10. It's about 3ft tall. Now what do I do with it! I thought about potting it, someone else advised planting it in the ground, someone else said they go mad in the ground and to pot it to keep it smallish (which sounds sensible). Any thoughts? What sort of pot? Size of pot? Type of soil? How to care for it etc.

Many thanks!

We have one in one of those large squidgy plastic ribs with holes drilled in the bottom sunk into the ground. It won't be happy in the summer if the pot is exposed plus this way we bring it in over Christmas (with an outer pot to drop it into.

Plant it in the garden and put lights on at Christmas.
