Generalities Chinese fir
The Chinese fir Is medium in size; in spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a green colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown. These plants develop like conifers. Fertilization Chinese fir
Tree fertilization should be done at the beginning of the spring or of autumn, using humus or mature manure; this should be done by mixing a few buckets of fertilizer to the ground, around the trunk of the tree, every 2-3 years or when the tree implanted. Exposure Chinese firPosizione mezza ombra
The Chinese fir should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero. It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind. Watering Chinese firTenere Umido
During this period of the year the The Chinese fir needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let’s irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 2-3 buckets of water . We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water. Treatments Chinese fir
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate. Soil Chinese fir
We suggest a pretty rich, quite soft, but not too drained, growing substratum.
