Dwarf Alberta Spruce - How to Start

Q: Where can I find or get seeds from these trees?

Are there cones on the trees? If so, how can I start a tree???


A: You can root dwarf Alberta spruces through cuttings. Collect them in December and put them in a sand/peat mixture.

I would dip each cutting into a rooting hormone (available at a nursery or garden center) first. Take a lot of cuttings, as not all will make it.

Should you find any cones (I have to admit I've never seen any), they require no special treatment.

Plant them in a good friable soil mixture (sand and peat should do the trick, or regular potting soil), stand back and see what happens.
