Fertilize 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.

Water Engelmann spruceTenere Umido
Let's wet abundantly with about 2-3 buckets of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 2-3 weeks . We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.

Light 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. Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can take in the solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.We advise cultivating the the Engelmann spruce outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.

Pests 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.

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