|It's Easy to Plant your Norway Spruce
Specific Directions for Norway Spruce
Plant your Norway Spruce Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Norway Spruces can tolerate shade but prefer full sunlight. Plant your Norway Spruces 8 to 10 feet apart for privacy screens, their foliage will quickly fill in.
Your Norway Spruce will adapt to your natural soil as long as it's well draining, but prefers sandy soil. Mix sandy or fine potting mix with your natural soil to make it sandier before planting. Your Norway Spruce won't need any extra water unless you're experiencing a drought. Rain fall usually gives Norway Spruces enough moisture.
Fertilize your Norway Spruce with a slow release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen twice every Spring and once a month during the Summer. Each Spring cones are produced that get between 4 to 7 inches long. They take about a year to mature and ripen around September.
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Norway Spruce.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Norway Spruce gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
