The Q&A Archives: dwarf spiral alberta Is is dying?

Question: I bought a dwarf alberta spruce in the spring at homedepot and the tip the shrub is turning brown. What do I do?? There are other areas that are turning brown.

Answer: Water stress is the most common reason for browning foliage with spruces. Be sure you water deeply once or twice a week (depending upon weather). You can prune out the browning foliage. Pruning it back a little should encourage healthy new growth.

Best wishes with your alberta spruce!
