Nordman Fir Tree Seeds
Abies nordmanniana

Caucasian fir

Description: The Nordman comes from the Caucus mountains that separate Turkey from Russia. When selecting seed it is crucial you source from Russian provenance as these trees have evolved in much harsher conditions and grow in a more dense and bushy habit. By contrast the Turkish side produced trees that shot up and their foliage is far more spread out.
