      Heck Walmart etc. for closout Dwarf Alberta Spruce

      1 Gallon for $5 in Danbury. 2 Gallon for a bit more, $12 I think. I bought 6 of the 1 gallon  to replace a few that have died and add a few.

      At least you didn’t start with the “S” Or the “F”bomb, but yeah it would be nice to be able to adjust the title of  a post if you get it wrong

      I think Cliff stole it to use on my thread....

       

      You need to write Bob to ask him to fix it, other wise it rides.

      This week Home Depot is running a similar sale on the dwarf Alberta Spruce. $5 for the 1 gal and $10 for the 2 gal. The wife was complaining about wanting a live tree for Christmas this year, so I picked up a couple 2 gal, and lit them up with battery operated lights.

      What the heck!   The challenge for me is keeping them alive until spring.  I have a nice spot set up in the large west facing window in my basement / train room right behind a sink. It should be easy to remember to water them, but I'm not good at routine.  I've nearly killed other plants that have wintered there by drying them out.

      Jon, have you tried this variety yet? 

      Picea glauca JEAN'S DILLY

      I have a couple of these planted by the old layout that I haven't gotten around to transplanting yet. . They're a bit more expensive, but I think they look more to scale.

      I put ours in a spot where we pass several times a day, the container sits in a pie tin. If the pie tin is dry, we add a little water.

      Mine would do the same... a half hour after licking the pie tin dry. 

       

      But nice find Jon. I couldn't find any locally, but good luck and have fun with yours.

      My wife pointed out to me all the new sprouts on the tree today. They are an inch to an inch and a half long all the way around the tree.
