I found this tiny spruce tree under a rhododendron. Although I like it at this size I don’t want it to grow big so I yanked it out. I read in The New Sylva by Gabriel Hemery and Sarah Simblet that Norway Spruce “rarely produces viable seed in Britain” (p63) so either this is not a Norway Spruce though large, mature trees of that species growing near us would suggest that it is, or the Boggy Brae garden is one of the rare places that Norway Spruce seed does turn out to be viable! I pull out several seedlings like this, and larger ones, every year.
