Planted a potted blue spruce we had for a Christmas tree after Christmas - did recommended procedures - has been a mild winter. The tree is not dry - not losing needles - color OK in most branches - not as bright in some - but no yellow or brown. However no new growth yet - should we be worried?

Welcome!

If its not brown or dry, be patient. It will grow when it has sufficient roots to grow.

Without photos, that's about alll I can tell you.
