The linden tree is not only a beautiful but also a useful tree that can decorate any site. It is unpretentious to growing conditions and tolerates climate change.

The linden tree is known for the fact that its flowers, in addition to filling the air with a pleasant aroma, can also be a tasty and healing ingredient for making decoctions. AgroMarket told us how to plant and care for this tree.

Where to plant a Linden tree

Linden trees can grow quite large, so it is important to choose a good place for them in the garden where they will not interfere with other plants.

It is best to choose an area with partial shade for planting, but linden trees can grow in the sun and regular shade.

Soil preparation

Soil for linden trees should be well-drained, nutritious, and have a pH of 6.0 to 7.5. Before planting the plant, weed out the weeds and remove all debris and stones from the area. Then you should loosen the soil and add organic fertilizers to it.

Planting a linden tree

You can plant linden saplings in spring or fall. To do this, you need to dig a hole that is twice as large as the root system, put the tree in it, and cover it with nutritious soil.

Sometimes young seedlings should be tied to a support so that the plant can form an even trunk.

Caring for the linden tree

For a linden tree to grow strong and healthy, it needs regular watering during the first few years after planting, as the root system is not yet well developed and cannot provide it with enough moisture on its own.

You should also not neglect fertilizing, especially if the soil is poor. In this case, you need to use both mineral and organic fertilizers.

As a rule, linden trees are quite resistant to diseases, but this does not mean that they cannot be affected by the most common ones. To protect your trees as much as possible, you need to provide them with good ventilation and avoid watering from above.
