spruce versus holly
Hi. Hoping for some advice. Nursery recommended I plant a blue holly under a corner tree to block our neighbors garage. I accidentally bought a blue spruce. Will this work as well? it's a compact colorado blue spurce. looks like it will grow to same size 6-8' as the holly, but wondering how it will do under another tree...Thanks. (in boston)
Without the complete botanical names of both trees it would be difficult to say if the blue spruce will work for you. I also found it confusing that you said you were planting it under another tree. Maybe you mean next to?
Blue spruce isn't a long lived tree and would be more prone to disease then a holly. Maybe you can post a picture?
I've also moved your question to the 'Trees' forum so you have a better chance of getting more answers.
