Aleppo Pine (Pinus Halepensis) 20 seeds (#358)

A Mediterranean native valued for its exceptional heat- and drought-tolerance, this medium-sized evergreen tree is often planted in California and the Southwest United States.
The short, bright green needles of this pine occur in bundles of two. They are rather sparsely borne on short upright branches which form an open, rounded, irregular crown. In spring, tiny male cones and larger female cones appear near the branch tips. The egg-shaped, yellowish brown female cones angle backward from the branches. Female cones ripen in 3 years but often persist for much longer. This tree usually has a single trunk with smooth gray bark that becomes brown and scaly with age.
This cold-tender pine does well in full sun and well-drained soil, thriving in hot dry sites. A good choice for streets, parks, and large yards, it makes an ideal companion for deciduous trees such as redbuds and cottonwoods. (source: learn2grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place the seeds in a container with tepid water and soak them for 24 hours.
2. Fill small pots with compost. Place one or two pine seeds on top of the compost in each pot, then cover the seeds with a thin layer of sand (5-6 mm / 1/4").
3. Water the sand and compost to add moisture, then place the pots in a warm, sunny location. As the seedlings emerge and grow, the soil needs to remain moist, not wet.
Repot the pine trees into medium-sized pots in the fall. Grow them in the pots for the following season until they are large and strong enough for transplanting into the landscape.
