•Spruces need a thorough soak with water before heading into winter to help avoid browning, particularly when they are young
•Spruces do not show moisture stress throughout the year (unlike deciduous leaves, which start wilting when they are stressed), so make sure to water thoroughly after a week of hot, dry weather
