Container grown blue spruce
I reported 2 blue spruce trees into 100 gal containers. They are doing very well putting out new growth on 3 sides. The 4th side on both trees has not put on any new growth. I need to know if there might be a reason for this or if it is a natural growth pattern?

This can be natural, and will mean that the pot needs to be rotated. This can help achieve even growth patterns. If this is not possible, then the growth may continue to be slow on that side, but it will not hurt the overall health of the tree.
