Nordmann Fir

Fir trees are evergreen coniferous trees. They can be confused with other types of conifer. The way to tell a fir tree is by the way the needles grow, and by the cones. The soft needles are attached to the branch by what looks like a suction cup, and detach from the branch without leaving a peg behind. The fir tree cones grow upwards, like candles, rather than hanging down. They are softer than other coniferous trees, and they open up at the end of the season to spread their seeds. The trees can grow very large - up to 80 mtrs - and tend to be somewhat conical in shape

Planting

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Plant in slightly acidic soil in a sunny site. Dig a hole bigger than the root-ball, and put in some organic compost into the hole, before planting the tree.

 

Propagating by seed

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Sow seed in early Spring in a pot of seed compost. Transplant to permanent sit whn the seedling is big enough to handle, and after it has been hardened off.
