Growing/Caring conditions for Tilia Aregentea

• Dig a hole.
• This hole should be as deep as the linden tree sapling’s root ball.
• Use a shovel and make the hole wider than the root ball.
• This should be more by 8 to 12 inches.
• Turn over the soil inside the hole with the shovel.
• Mix it with compost.
• Compost adds nutrients to the soil leading to growth into a healthy tree.
• Place the linden tree carefully in the center of the hole.
• Fill around the root ball with several inches of soil mixed with compost.
• The tree should stay upright.
• Do not completely fill the hole.
• Saturate the soil around the tree with water.
• Allow the soil to absorb the water fully.
• Add more soil to fill the rest of the hole.
• Cover the area around the linden tree with 2 inches of mulch.
• This will protect the tree’s roots.
• Do not let the mulch cover the tree trunk.
• It will also discourage or prevent fungus, disease, rot or insect infestation.
• Fertilize the linden tree each spring and throughout the growing season.
• Prune the linden tree each autumn.
• Remove any diseased or dead branches with pruning shears.
