Response from Staff HorticulturistDec 19, 2019
Thank you for your comment. I apologize if the plant we sent to you was skimpy. The plants are two year old starter plants. We pride ourselves on growing health plants. I will look into our shipping department to be sure we are only sending the best quality plants.

Still Growing Beautifully!
I bought two of these in Fall 2016 online, but as bare-root. They were shipped in nice protective packaging, and were very green and healthy. They were well-branched and already 22" tall. I grew them in 12" pots until Spring 2019 then repotted them in 16" pots. Now they're 39" tall! I'll be keeping them in pots even if they need to be root-pruned. But they're doing fine so far! These spruces are very tolerant of wind, drought, shade, and pretty much take care of themselves. This type of spruce would make a great gift for someone just learning how to grow trees!
