ORIENTAL

SPRUCE

"A stunning evergreen conifer known for its graceful form and dark green needles which will retain their structure even when other trees' leaves have fallen."

IN OUR GARDEN

Currently, we have two spruces in our park.

HOW TO GROW

SOIL CONDITIONS

The Oriental Spruce thrives when planted in sandy loam soil, necessitating proficient drainage and a substantial provision of organic nutrients. It excels within a favored pH range that typically tilts slightly towards acidic to neutral, encompassing values between 5.5 and 7.0, to ensure its optimal growth.

SUN EXPOSURE

The Oriental Spruce thrives when planted in settings that offer partial shade to dappled sunlight. Although it can endure full sun exposure, it's wise to acknowledge that, especially in hotter climates, providing shade during the sun's peak intensity is advisable to reduce the potential for heat-related stress.
