Unhealthy looking Picea Pungens Blue Diamond

Somapop,

some 20 years ago my sister gave me picea pungens for my raised  heather garden.  Like you I didnt want to lose it and, like you again, was prepared buy another when it started to suffer ....as it did. 

i had reservations because I thought my soil was too alkaline for it.  an acid soil or at least a neutral soil is needed I think.

however, looking at your pictures I think you have over watered it.......???  are you still watering it?

don't think this is the reason for it but picea mite can defoliate these plants.....any accummulations of yellow/brown needles at the base?
