Ex-President of the Kyrgyz Republic Roza Otunbayeva Planted Pine Seedlings During the IV Festival of Education

Ex-President of the Kyrgyz Republic Roza Otunbayeva Planted Pine Seedlings During the IV Festival of Education, and dedicated them to the Festival.  If you want to be sure you are as involved as you can be in the planting of your seeds, then too can try growing a pine tree from a seedling. These seedlings should be planted either in the ground or in a specially prepared box. Of course, the second option is generally better, as seedlings in the ground are vulnerable to rodents.   As you plant the seedling, make sure that it is in a shallow hole, and even better, simply place the seedlings on open soil and then loosen it a bit.   After a year, you can move the saplings to their permanent place, and the best time of year to make this transition is in April or May.
