|Exposure Abies alba
continental : These plants prefer partially shady places, where they can be exposed to direct solar rays only in the evening or early morning hours.
alpine : Let's choose a partially shaded place for our plant, where it can be exposed to direct sunrays for a few hours a day.
mediterranean : Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.
continental : Watering during this period of the year must be frequent and regular; letís irrigate at least every 2-3 weeks with 4-5 buckets of water, watering more often during the hottest days of the year.
alpine : During the summer these plants need regular and abundant watering, to be done every 3-4 weeks, waiting for the ground to dry between an irrigation and another. The recommended doses are 3-4 buckets of water.
mediterranean : Letís irrigate the The Abies alba every 1-2 weeks, always waiting for the soil to be dry before wetting it again with 5-6 buckets of water.
Fertilization Abies alba : In the summer letís fertilize only newly planted trees, enriching the soil with manure or humus, therefore improving its mixture; as far as the plants which have been growing for long, we can avoid fertilizing them during this time of year.
Treatments Abies alba : During the hot months attacks by ticks and rust are likely; the treatments should be applied during the coolest hours of the day. If possible, we suggest avoiding treatments with wide-range products, which could kill the populations of useful insects: letís favour specific products.
