Step 2: Fill your container about 2/3 full with Pike's Potting & Container soil. 

Step 3: Work in a handful of Dr. Earth's Root Zone fertilizer to promote root growth. 

Step 4: Plant Alberta Spruce in the center of the container & add more soil around the rootball.   

Step 5: Place moss on top of the soil for a nice, clean look. 

Step 6: Begin wrapping lights from the bottom & gently wrap around the Alberta Spruce, working your way to the top.  


Care Instructions:
 Feel soil several inches down a few times a week. If the soil feels dry, it's time to water. If the soil feels moist, do not water & check again the following day. Avoid wetting the lights when watering. Feeling the soil for moisture levels will help avoid over-watering or under-watering your Rosemary Topiary.
