Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

For new plantings
1. Dig a hole one and a half times wider than the plant's container
2. Place plant in hole, keeping the top of the root ball ground level
3. Back fill with dirt
4. Water thoroughly and then mulch around the base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds
New plantings require more frequent watering than established plants. Wind, temperature and soil are factors to consider in watering.
Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer, following label instructions.

Care Instructions
Spruce trees require regular pruning to maintain their natural cone-shape. When pruning, always cut away dead and broken branches first, then cut any competing branches so they don't weaken the main leader. Water your spruce tree regularly, especially during extreme temperatures or drought. To ensure adequate drainage, place the tree on a raised bed or mound soil. Fertilizer may be added in early spring and autumn for healthy growth. Remove any weeds and grass that could compete for resources. Finally, protect the tree from severe weather, such as icy snow or high winds.
