I have 2 new Thuja in pots. They're 120cm high and clipped into spirals.

I'd like to have them either side of the front door but not sure if I should keep them in the pots or if it's safe to put into the ground.

I'm happy with the size of them and don't want them to grow much bigger so will keep them clipped.

The pot size is 17L.

Would it be safe to put them in the ground, maybe 30cm or so away from the wall so the branches don't touch the wall, or do I need to keep them in pots. If so, can the pots be sunk in the ground to hide them?

There are no drains nearby so it is only the foundations I'm concerned about.

many thanks
