How Can I Grow a Scotch Pine or a Blue Spruce From Seeds?

I have been wanting to grow myself a pine tree from seeds for some time now. They tell me it’s difficult, but possible. I realize this tree will eventually get too big for indoors, but I would also like to keep it inside for as long as possible. Your expertise would be appreciated. Thanks

Watering Dwarf Alberta Spruce in Container

I just planted two Dwarf Alberta Spruce trees in containers. I watered them very well after planting. I want to know how often I should water. I live in central Jersey. The pots are not ceramic nor are they clay. They may be a fiberglass material; they look heavy but are not.

As long as the pots have good drainage, water them about once a day in summer, 2-3 times a week in spring and fall and do not water in winter (natural rain or snow fall will take care of it).

Had a company cut a big ‘hole’ between two 40-foot blue spruce trees. What can I grow in the ‘hole’ to be able to NOT see the neighbor’s yard?

If you could provide the proper growing requirements, it should be fine, though you may want to consider using a dwarf variety. For additional information and other possibilities, this article should help: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/containers/how-to-grow-container-trees.htm

Wintering Bare Root Trees

I live in Alaska and have some tree seedlings that I will not be able to plant until next year. They are white/Lutz spruce and are 10 inches tall. How and where can I safely keep them for winter and when next year can I plant them?

Dwarf Alberta Spruce

Can a dwarf Alberta spruce be grown in a container in Tucson, AZ if it is moved into the air conditioning in the hot weather?

ANSWERS

Yes, these trees can be successfully grown in containers. However, it may not be necessary to move yours inside. If you have a shady location, you could simply move it there and keep it watered in hot temps at least twice a day. Indoors plants can be affected by the low humidity levels caused by air conditioning and may need to be misted on a daily basis or set on a tray of pebbles filled with water to make up for this lack of humidity. Also, it helps to keep them away from any a/c vents.
