- Dig the soil thoroughly to a depth of sixty to seventy centimeters. Give her a little lie down (this will take several weeks) and form landing pits. Mix the ground with what you get in the process of digging with organic fertilizer in a ratio of 2: 1 (ground: fertilizer). After everything is ready, at the bottom of the planting pits add the nutrient soil you prepared and plant your plants. After landing, water. During planting, the plant should not be buried.

- It is best to feed a heart-shaped linden twice a season in spring and summer. Optimal use of liquid mineral fertilizers.
- Not bad to follow the crown. Damaged twigs, as well as those that have dried are best removed. The linden will well transfer the crown molding only to do this in early spring, while the buds on the branches have not yet dissolved.
- Linden is winter-hardy and therefore does not require that you cover it for the winter.
