Feed Engelmann spruce
Tree fertilization should be done at the beginning of the spring or of autumn, using humus or mature manure; this should be done by mixing a few buckets of fertilizer to the ground, around the trunk of the tree, every 2-3 years or when the tree implanted.

Irrigation Engelmann spruceTenere Umido
The Engelmann spruce needs to be watered quite frequently, every 2-3 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 2-3 buckets of water . We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.

Temperatures Engelmann sprucePosizione mezza ombra
With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind. We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day.We suggest growing the the Engelmann spruce outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.

Adversity Engelmann spruce
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Substrate Engelmann spruce
We suggest a pretty rich, quite soft, but not too drained, growing substratum.
