Hello happytimesaver and welcome to JustAnswer.

What kind of seedlings are you planting?
Will you be planting in the ground or in a pot or planter?

Thanks for asking your question here on JustAnswer. If you provide that additional information, I can give you a more definitive answer.

spruce christmas tree seedlings in small pots at first

HiCustomer



Put them in a mix of about 1/4 sand and 3/4 soil made from organic matter (with a bit of peat moss but not too much). If you plan to move them around often, you could not include sand, it's only to help draining and it can make the pot heavy.



The organic matter is not much because the spruce need it (because it ask for little) but as a convenient way to not have to water it too often and because it's light to move around.



Give them lot of sun, they will not dry. Make sure the water can drain from the bottom of the pot.



Latter, you can put them in any type of soil, it's a very adaptable tree.
