Pinus sylvestris Globosa

GardenAward

Scots Pine

Dwarf, very dense round pyramid forming

So sweet. This is an adorable miniature version of the Scots pine that is very slow growing and makes a dense, cone of bright green needle-like leaves.

Where?

Great for a Japanese themed garden or grow in a container on a patio. Happy in a sunny spot.

How?

Best in any well-drained soil, that doesn't get waterlogged in winter. Use good quality compost for container growing and raise the pot on pot feet through the winter months to help with drainage.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.

Planting site Wildlife garden, Coastal or drought resistant
