Blue spruce is widely available in the bigger garden centres that stock a wide range of plants, such as Johnstown Garden Centre in Naas.

It likes to be in full sunshine with plenty of air movement but not sever exposure in fertile but well-drained soil with space to grow.

Spruces tend to suffer from conifer mites and greenflies, which cause needles to fall off, and it may be necessary to spray with a systemic insecticide in May and September, but planting in an open spot can help to avoid this problem.
