Picea abies, the Norway spruce or European spruce is the tree of choice for many of us at Christmas and has been used as far back as the fifteenth century as a decorative Christmas tree.
A tree of history and tradition, the evergreen Spruce has long been associated with thanks and celebration and every year the city of Oslo donates a large Norway Spruce to London, symbolises their gratitude for help and aid received during the second World War.
A fast-growing, dense conifer, up to 30m tall, the Norway spruce is narrowly conical when young becoming broader with age and mature trees provide a valuable habitat for a variety of wildlife so by growing one, you definitely do your bit for the environment!
Plants can be grown in a pot for a number of years and brought in over the festive period, although will eventually need to be planted out into the garden, somewhere with room to spread.
Perfect for celebrating a new home, a new member of the family, or just so the children can learn a lot about growing fun trees!
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, 30-60cm in height, ready for immediate planting.
