|I purchased two miniture albera spruce at Home Depot this spring. One has already died and the other one is dying. What do you do to keep them alive?|
|Without further diagnosis its hard to determine why and what the problem is. Could be numerous reasons: Perhaps the trees were over-watered, under-watered, planted too deeply, planted too high, perhaps there are poor soil conditions, over-saturated soil conditions, clay soils, dense soils? Perhaps the trees have a spider mite problem?
But to keep alive, you should plant an alberta spruce in a good organic soil / well drained soil and water every 3 to 4 days. Don't water every day as they cant live in saturated soil conditions. And check the soil frequently to make sure that is well drained.
hope this helps and good luck.
