RE: Alberta Spruce & Ilex Meserveae "San Gabriel"

I do hope you are right, Ceres.  We already have many large trees on the
property, so another 30-40' tree (well, 6 of them actually) would take up a
great deal of space we don't have.  

I'll go ahead and plant them assuming they are the dwarf AS.  That would
mean they could go closer to the house or the fence row.  That is where I
had wanted them to go.  The directions on them said to put them in a
sheltered area, such as next to the house in their pots for the duration of
the winter and to plant them in the spring.  Well, it has been warm enough
for the last week or so that the ground has thawed out and I could even
plant them on Monday, but I'm not sure that would be the best for them.  I
may just put them up next to the house and pile leaves around the pots.  Do
you think that would work O.K.?  Or should I plant them pot and all Monday
until spring?

Bonnie, what   you got is a dwarf AS, I am sure.   Its mature height is more

like 6' & perhaps 3-4' in width.   My largest two are about 4' and one of 
those I paid $1.50 for.   I have about 8 of them.   I do like them.   How
are you 
going to care for them this winter?
