Oh did you chop it back it looks much smaller in the other pics?

Yes, I cut off all the leaves.

That surprises me TM as I would have thought you wrap it up in the leaves to protect the crown?

Mmmn. It was the first time I did this.. I just followed my friend's instruction.. Hope I did the right thing,.. I think I did because he's an expert.. We stuffed lots of fluffy hay in the house and topped it with a plastic sheet as the roof so that the crown won't get any water/snow.
