Go check it out on the AeroGarden website. Its available now.

Can't wait to see some of the more experienced AeroGardeners give this a try. Having your own Christmas tree out front would be neat! Just don't know about 7 of them!! LoL I guess they could be shared with friends and family. The extra little trees could be given away as gifts. What a great Christmas gift!

Makes perfect sense, when I think about it.  The US Forest Service plants trees in plugs similar to the AG plugs but bigger.  The seedling plugs are often given away up here for various events.  It's a way for the Forest Service to get trees planted without having to spend the money to do it, which is a good thing for taxpayers and the forest, too.  Loggers also plant plugs to replace trees that have been harvested.  Sometimes businesses buy plugs and give them away for special occasions.  So growing little trees in an AG is probably a similar process to what the big producers do, just on a smaller scale.

I looked at the info on AG site.  They say they can stay up to 1 year in the AG.  I wonder if they would give off a wonderful aroma?

Don't know if I'd want to give up my AG for a year for some spruce. Norwegian spruce are wonderful though. I think the bigger problem is that spruce trees just don't do well in all areas of this country.

I've been wanting to give this one a try, just something different... How cool would it be to grow Christmas tree presents for friends. I wonder if they somehow treat the seeds to encourage sprouting? That would be my only question with starting your own trees like fruit trees, but you know it'd be worth sacrificing a few pods when growing the spruce trees to see if you could let like a Lemon tree to start?!?!

Uh oh, I see an experiment brewing in my future  Wink

My wife would kill me LOL! She is allergic to pine trees but this would be an awesome kit to get. I have 4 empty classics and would not mind having one set up for this. Imagine buying this kit, growing the trees and then the second year sell them for $20-$40 for Christmas. you could make a profit Wink

I'm itching to buy this for Christmas presents for family members. Everyone here (fam & inlaws) owns their own property so this could really make a neat gift idea.

I'm wondering about the fruit trees myself! I'd l I've an apple free in the back yard! Cheesy or a cherry tree, so many ideas! Cheesy

I heard about the Norway Spruce kit during the conference call, and it sounded like a great idea.  I have a kit on order, and once I get it going (likely in April), I'll report back.  The plan is to leave it in the garden for a year then plant the trees next Sprint (2012).

While they may be able to stay in the AG for a year, they only give you the standard quantity of fertilizer.  If you plan on a year, like I am, you will need to buy additional packets, or buy the bulk size when it becomes available again.

I sent them an Email asking if these had the great pine smell.  They answered that it's not too fragrant.   A strong fragrance would have made it easier for me to dedicate an AG for one year -- just to have the smell of the mountains in my kitchen.

I hope some of you will try this seed kit, cause it will be interesting to see the results in pictures Cheesy

Perhaps a stupid question; but where can one find the seed in a Norwegian Spruce? And does anyone know how many seeds to put in one pod?

I may be totally wrong here...  but, if I am not mistaken, the seeds to a spruce tree would be in the little pine cones!   Wink

It looks like the seed kit 2-3 seeds per pod, but you are supposed to thin to one seedling.  The instructions say that you can pull the multiple sprouts out and plant them in a separate pot (which it what I plan on doing).

My pods have no germination time listed; rather, they are the generic labels.  All of the seed kits I purchased recently have only had generic labels.

I'm guessing that it will take 2-3 weeks for germination.
