    How to grow spruce in the garden

    To begin with, you should know that you will have to wait more than one year before the plant grows up. 3-4 years after planting, the seedling of a pine or a Christmas tree reaches a height of no more than half a meter.

    1. If you decide to go to the forest, then go there just for the cones, and not for the Christmas tree.Seeds in cones ripen in autumn, in November. Already in February, they are sown from cones. Your task is to have time to collect cones before February comes. It is best to do this after the snow falls. When the bumps fall on the snow, they become strong, and the warm earth is not favorable for them. As a result, the strongest will survive, but you will be able to recognize them only after a year with the appearance of the first green twigs.
    2. After the buds are harvested, it is necessary to extract the seeds from them. Stratify to give them the best germination. To do this, soak the seeds in very cold water. Do not be afraid to add ice. After 2-3 days they will swell, and you will need to put them in the wet sand. In order for the seeds to germinate, keep the temperature at zero in the sand.
    3. Now your seeds are ready for planting. Sow them in the ground not very deep (at 0, 5 cm maximum), because nature has taken care of that the Christmas trees grew without burying.
    4. The soil should be sandy, suitable and loose loam. Fertilizing the land is not necessary. Add land brought from the forest. Take it from under the usual forest fir trees.
    5. When the earth is ready, put it in tubs or pots.Sow a few seeds in each pot, and in the spring pick the strongest.
    6. If possible, bring all the pots and pots to fresh air, stick them in the ground so that they stand until spring. Remember that spruce rises in the winter in the snow. If you do not have this opportunity, then take out the pots on the balcony.
    7. With the arrival of spring and summer, you will observe what your efforts have led to. And as you planted your own spruce in pots and tubs, you can easily carry them, transport them, and even sell them. There is always a high demand for such Christmas trees, especially when the plant is strong and high. This is a very good business idea for summer residents and gardeners. The plots in winter are idle and just leave room for pots with firs.
