Linden can be started both indoors and outdoors. For outdoor plantation, linden seeds should be sown in fall whereas the containerized specie can be grown any time of the year.
Linden seeds require full to partial sun exposure with soil that is moist but has the capability of draining water rapidly at the same time. Also, the soil must dangle between 7 to 8 pH to have a good yield. However, linden can tolerate weakly acidic soil pH too.
Mulch can be added to the soil for nourishing the linden plant, all the while killing the invasive weeds. Even after becoming a tree, linden hates the idea of dry spells so it requires a lot of water when rainfall is scarce.
The linden seeds exhibit delayed germination that varies from two years to five years. After germination, the plant shows a medium growth rate i.e. around 12 to 20 inches per respective year.
Linden tree then plunges into the flowering phase for just about two weeks. The blooming months vary with the zones. They will blossom sometime during May and July. The drooping clusters of linden blossom liberate attractive smell that invites bees and aphids to perform pollination. After pollination, fertilization occurs that leads to the formation of berries (fruit) that bear seeds.
These seeds are dispersed by animals in the wild, either near or far from the parent plant, to keep with its lifecycle.
