Abies concolor (White Fir) seeds
Majestic slow growing conifer with smooth grey bark and blue green foliage. A lovely specimen tree which bears long, cylindrical cones when mature. It is also grown as a Christmas tree and makes a lovely alternative to the usual very green trees.
Position: Sun or semi shade
Packet of 25 seeds
[If sowing a large quantity, mix seeds with the compost/vermiculite and place in a resealable bag in the fridge. Open the bag and give the seeds a good shake to aerate them each week. Then sow thinly into trays or, in spring/summer, directly outdoors in a nursery bed]
An alternative method is to sow in pots as above during late summer to early winter then place in a cold frame and let nature take its course as the seasons change with the seedlings emerging the next spring.
Growing Instructions: Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots and grow on in a cold frame or nursery bed for a year or two then plant in their final position in sun or semi-shade.
