Please remember that when buying Norway Spruce seeds, they must go through a stratification process! Stratification is a process of pre-treating seeds in order to simulate natural conditions that seeds would experience in the soil over-winter.
Norway spruce have a shallow dormancy and are fairly easy to germinate, follow these simple instructions-

-Soak seeds in water for 24 hours.

-Place seeds in sandwich bag(s) with a bit of damp sand or vermiculite to keep moist.

-Place the bag(s) with seeds in refrigerator for about 30 to 45 days.

-After the required time take the seeds out of the refrigerator and sow the seeds in pots  1/8 inch deep and cover lightly. Water gently so as not  to wash away the seeds. Keep soil moist but not wet.

**If you do not pre treat the seeds, then germination will be very minimal and take a very long time to sprout. Dont skip these very important steps when growing spruce seeds at home. **
