Growing & Maintenance Tips for Abies alba 'Pyramidalis'

Grows best in an acidic well-drained moist to damp soil. Avoid planting in heavy clay or areas with poor drainage. In late spring, when buds are still light green and approximately 5 cm long, they can be pinched in half with thumb and finger to help maintain shape.
