How to Care for your New Blue Spruce or Dwarf Alberta Spruce Tree

Now that you’ve come to Back to Nature and decorated your free holiday tree – you need to be sure you know how to take care of it! Below you will find the complete planting and care instructions for your tree.

Instructions for your Blue Spruce and Dwarf Alberta Tree
We’re delighted that you have committed to planting your Blue Spruce and Dwarf Alberta Tree. For now, take time to enjoy your lovely decorated tree! Place your tree outside to welcome visitors or enjoy its beauty from a window.

Keep an eye on your tree! If we don’t get rain (or snow) your tree may need water. Be sure not to let it dry out!

After the last spring frost, you’re ready to plant! Plant your tree in an area with full sun exposure. Choose a space with at least 6 to 10 feet of clearance from buildings so the tree can spread without worry.

Dig a planting hole measuring twice the width of the nursery container and 2 inches deeper. Remove the tree from the container and gently loosen the soil around the roots. Position the tree in the center of the hole. Carefully fill the hole with planting mix and compost, being sure that the top of the tree’s soil ball is just slightly higher that the soil line. Water your tree regularly throughout the first year.

Thank you! By planting this tree, you are helping give back to nature and restore the environment!!
