Pinus Mugo Pumilo

 

Dwarf Mountain Pine. Slow-growing spreading conifer will stay neat and compact for many years, eventually forming a mound of spreading branches covered by dense green needles. With maturity, female cones are produced at the tips of the stems. Ideal for borders and the centre of rockeries or patio containers, where this evergreen miniature tree can give interest all year round. This wind tolerant conifer copes well with coastal situations and urban pollution. Height: 3.5m Spread: 5m.

 

Plant in well drained soil in full sun.

  • If the Conifer is being planted in a lawn remove a circle of turf.
  • Dig a hole twice the size of the pot being planted and fork over the base. Adding a bucketful of planting compost.
  • Remove the pot gently, if the Conifer is well rooted cut off the pot.
  • Ensure that the top of the Root ball is level with the surrounding soil.
  • Replace the remaining soil and heel in, water the Conifer and area thoroughly
  • Water regular until Conifer is established.
