The Austrian pine bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures. During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; when putting the very young specimens, with a thin stem, in shelter, we should provide them with a high stake to keep them erect.Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light.
Cultivation Austrian pine
The Austrian pine develops like a conifer. This plant in the winter assumes a green colouring; it is large in size and can reach 20 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development.
Fertilize Austrian pine
Trees tend to find a great part of nutrients in the soil, because their roots spread more than ten metres; in any case it is advisable to feed the soil with amendants, to guarantee a good quantity of mineral salts; every 2-3 years, in the spring or autumn, we suggest adding to the soil at the feet of the trunk, about a bucket of mature organic fertilizer.
Water Austrian pine
The Austrian pine Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 2-3 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 2-3 buckets of water . The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings.
Pests Austrian pine
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
