Please help

I bought these little conifers but they didn't have a care card. Could you please help me identifying what kind of conifers they are?
Kind regards

    A specialised area, so can't help there I'm afraid. I was looking at some yesterday, and bought a tiny one for a trough garden, that will only grow a few centimetres a year. It can be moved to the rockery when it does finally get too big :)
    They look a nice shape and are a good size, but that to me suggests that they are likely to be  fairly fast growing. Unless you paid a lot for them, in which case I would expect some care & growth information!
    Keeping them in pots will slow them down a bit, but you will need to keep them well watered, especially if it is a dry summer again.

    It looks like some kind of pine to me, but that is a complete guess.

    As B'cupdays says - don't let it get dried out. Keep it somewhere out of extremes of weather too, as heat and wind will do more damage than anything. .Wind is very drying, but people often think it's only heat and sun which dries out potted plants.

    There are too many varieties to make an accurate ID, but it looks like one of the many types sold at Christmas. Spruce of some kind perhaps.

    If Silver Surfer is around, he might be able to ID it.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
