Transplanting pine and spruce
Transplant all conifers, including spruce and pine, preferably in the spring season from mid April to early may. This is because their survival rate is lower than in flowering plants (Linden, oak, ash), and the roots grow much slower and require the development of the warm period. Pine and spruce can be transplanted into end-of-summer time, however you need to be sure that the seedlings from the container, the roots of which do not have severe damage.
End-of-summer period, in which you can transplant conifers, is the time from 20 August to 20 September.
In the hole intended for transplantation pine or fir, you need to sprinkle a little soil from the woods where they grow trees. It contains a fungus that forms a vital symbiosis with the roots of conifers and help them develop, grow and strengthen. In normal soil, the seedlings will sprout, but will quickly die without this fungus. In addition to forest soils, also in a hole, you can add a small amount of fertilizer for coniferous plants. Soil much soil is undesirable.
Features transplant pine and spruce
If seedlings of pine or spruce are transferred to the light phase of the dark forest, they must temporarily obscure that they are not burned in the spring sunshine. This is perfect hat which can be made from large bags which keep the flour or sugar. Also for replanting of pine seedlings in the fall to select a specimen height of 30 to 40 centimeters, although larger seedlings (about a meter) will also hold.
The seedlings of pine and spruce should Saatli in a clod the size of a bucket and watered in a drought until, until they get stronger.
To keep the main tap root of pine tree, not by cutting it by digging, it is best to transplant the little seedlings. To slow the growth of pine and the regulation of its height this root before planting to tie a weak knot and the crown of the trees to form a round ball. This is done each spring green growth at the ends of branches to break down below the branches fluffed out to the sides. This pine looks very nice and decorative.
In addition, when transplanting pines and firs should be planted two year old seedlings, because three year olds are pretty bad root. They need to dig in early spring with a big lump of earth, being careful not to expose the roots.
