Haven't had much luck growing this tree. Two if them died. Any tips on growing this plant? I tried it in well drained soil in full sun. Thanks.
I planted a young korean fir (8-10 in) here in northern Delaware this April in similar conditions but with afternoon shade. So far it is faring ok, but I'm not sure what my long term results will be. I'd be curious to hear others experiences as well.
I'd also suggest re-posting this on the conifers forum as well.
i grow them like weeds in MI ...
i seem to think my friend in KC cant grow them .. its a night heat/humidity issue ...
ask for dave in the conifer forum .. lol

A seedling (own root) Korean fir should grow well in most of New Jersey. Maybe not right by a pond, and not on completely awful clay builder's fill, but there can't be much of that anywhere in the state. Problem is if they were cultivars, a PNW wholesale nursery could have grafted them onto something that does not last long in New Jersey. For example, were they 'Horstmann's Silberlocke'?
And of course there's always the possibility you just did something wrong. Sorry. It is what it is. They are not fool-proof plants under the best of circumstances. Literally.

Not sure exactly the cultivar since I got it from Henry's Field and nursery but I will ask them. As far as doing something wrong, I guess it's possible, but I just dug up the dying plant and the soil was incredibly fertile....it had tons of worms in it. The sun situation was pretty good as well.....5 hours of sun and then some filtered sun/shade. It was watered once a day without fail as well.....
