Pinus nigra subsp. laricio 'Globosa Viridis'
Fertilizing Code:05/09 to 05/10
Pruning Code:06/04 to 06/05

Care Instruction:
Soil and Moisture: Pines do best in well drained, slightly acidic soils. Keep young plants watered until established, then cut back since they prefer it on the dry side.
Fertilizing: Feed in the spring with an acidic fertilizer such as HollyTone or MirAcid. If using a granular product, water immediately afterwards.
Pruning: To control size and shape, prune candles back by about a 1/3 as soon as they harden off.
Special Notes: Candles are the new growth emerging from the tips of Pines and are easily identified due to a different coloration and soft texture. Hardening off refers to the time in which the candles mature into normal coloration.
