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 Mexican pinyon should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside.
Fertilization Mexican pinyon
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.

The Mexican pinyon Is small in size; in spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a yellowgreen colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
Watering Mexican pinyon
Water rarely, about once every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.
Treatments Mexican pinyon
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 Mexican pinyon
Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
