Exposure Gray alderSole pieno
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. The Gray alder should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.The Gray alder should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.

Treatments Gray alder
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 Gray alder
We suggest a pretty rich, quite soft, but not too drained, growing substratum.
