The Missouri Botanical Garden web site for Serbian Spruce [link below] says it is “One of the most attractive spruces”. (Rick’s note: I have one in my own front yard, and I agree wholeheartedly). Few natural pests or diseases affect Serbian Spruce other than White Pine Weevil, which is easily controlled with over the counter pesticides.Individual Packaging Options:
Plug seedlings are grouped together in bundles for shipping, but we offer individual plastic packaging, eco-friendly packaging, and cotton gift bag packaging for all sizes of plug seedlings, sold separately in matching quantities. These individual packaging services are available for plug seedlings only.
Serbian Spruce plug seedlings are fast-growing, do well in full sun, and reach a height of up to 60 feet with a spread of 20 feet or more at the base. They prefer richer soils, but can do well in sandier soils if watered a couple of times per week if no rain.
PLANT IN RECORD TIME:
Watch how to plant evergreen seedling plugs faster and with less effort than any other type of “bare root” evergreen tree. With just a cordless drill, a garden cart or wheelbarrow, a 5 gallon bucket of water, and any old/dull/rusty 1 inch drill bit you have lying around, you can realistically plant one plug seedling per minute. Your back will thank us later 🙂
