What kind of seedlings should we plant in dry areas?

Trees resistant to hot and dry climates

Drought and drought tolerant trees are formed in climatic conditions adjacent to the desert and at a low altitude from sea level. In this type of climate, the humidity is always low and the annual precipitation is very low. To plant trees or create a green space, in addition to choosing the right plant for planting, you must pay attention to the type of placement of trees in order to cool the air and reduce the amount of soil evaporation.

In this type of climate, the cultivation of plants is associated with water and fertilizer restrictions, so it is recommended to plant in an enclosed space first, or with the help of some trees, this space should be provided for cultivation. Planting trees such as pine and cypress or planting shrubs and creeping plants are suitable for this. Creeping and climbing plants are valuable plants for landscaping in hot, dry climates because they create landscapes suitable for green spaces.

In this type of climate, it is best to use plants compatible with this climate. Plants adapted to these conditions benefited from special features, for example, the leaves of the plant in question are mottled, or the leaves of the sage plant are gray to reduce the evapotranspiration of the plant. Or, for example, in the yucca plant, the presence of blades on the plant reduced evapotranspiration. Potted pine or cedar with low watering are suitable for these areas, while the Christmas tree needs moist conditions and plenty of water.

It is much more interesting to grow thorny oaks, tulips, and lilacs at home than aspen, silver maple, birch, or eastern spruce. The right place to plant a tree in a green space for this climate is turf-free ground, unless the lawn needs very little watering. Before planting, it is best to pay attention to the type of soil, drainage, etc., because they have a great influence on the growth of plants and trees. Among the drought-tolerant plants and seedlings, we can mention plants such as Pentas, Shah Pansad, Khatmi, Purslane, Salt Glass, Monkey Flower, Parsley Flower, Candlestick, Akhtar, Atlasi, etc.

Eucalyptus tree

It is a suitable tree and one of the heat-tolerant plants for creating a windbreak, covering the soil surface and controlling soil erosion. A lush and fast-growing tree.

There are three types of eucalyptus: desert, lemon and blue

Desert eucalyptus is a fast-growing windbreak and canopy. It grows well in humid climates. It grows rapidly in coastal areas, but is resistant to desert conditions. Lemon eucalyptus grows well as it does in the desert and is used a lot by landscapers, but it is cold sensitive and is mostly grown in coastal areas.

It grows against lack of water and poor soil quality and is not damaged by drought and frost. This tree does not grow on limestone and chalk soils and bears little fruit. Jujube roots need oxygen and grow well in sandy, loamy soil.

Barberry tree

The barberry tree is very drought tolerant, but the right amount of watering has a great effect on harvesting large and juicy fruits. The irrigation period is done once for ten days. Seedless barberry has lower water requirements than other barberry genera and species and, for this reason, is considered by growers.

In years of water shortage and drought, the farmers had a good harvest even by irrigating three times. The lack of sufficient water for the plant does not cause the plant to die and has good resistance.

One of the most attractive plants for cold and temperate regions is the blueberry plant, which can be one of the best choices with its beautiful flowers and distinctive fruits, as well as the visual beauty it brings you. These beautiful seedlings can be kept in shade in warmer regions, and even flat-types, which require less cold, are available on site.


The suitable temperature for the growth of mulberry seedlings ranges from 22 to 29 degrees Celsius, and during the winter it needs about 150-600 hours of temperatures below 7 degrees so that its cold needs are met and it can flower next year. Blueberry needs acidic soil to grow and should be kept in acidic or forest soil. Acidic soils include sphagnum moss or rotted leaf soil.

You can easily order on the website. Raspberries, Goji berries, Logan berries, and Rani berries can all be grown under almost the same conditions as blueberries.

an Apple:

Apples are trees that have good resistance in cold regions. Apples are considered trees in cool temperate regions and can withstand cold from -35-40°C. The apple’s cold requirement is about 1000-1600 hours below 7°C and does well in areas with warm winters. Did not come. In the last two months of ripening these fruits, cool nights are appropriate, otherwise the fruits will have a dull color and loose consistency, and the desired taste will not be achieved.

We have two types of apples: early ripening and late ripening apples

Early Ripening Apple Varieties: These varieties are produced around Khordad and Tere and can be grown easily in most cold regions, such as Kandak Kashan gulab, Isfahan gulab, Ahar summer apple, Shafiabadi apple.

Iranian autumn apples such as Derian apple, Marand apple, etc. We also have all kinds of apple trees available on site, which include, and…


Cherries, like apples, belong to the lily family and are suitable for cultivation in regions with mild winters and dry summers. Planting cherries in damp and dirty areas increases the possibility of diseases such as canker disease.

The cold resistance of cherry blossoms is higher than that of peach and lower than that of pears and peaches. The cooling requirement for most cherry trees is 1,000 to 1,500 hours. Among the cherry seedlings available on the site, we can mention

Decent job:

This tree loves cold winters and hot, dry summers. The cooling requirement for this tree is between 500 and 1800 hours of temperature below 7 degrees. Conditions for peaches and green tomatoes are similar and they are considered cool-season seedlings.


An altitude of 700 to 2500 meters above sea level is the best altitude for walnut cultivation. The extreme cold of the first season causes the brain to remain young. The chill requirement for this tree is 600 to 800 hours. The temperature over 37 degrees when the fruits are ripe also causes burns and blackening of the brain.

It is best not to plant walnuts in clay soil. Because it causes flowers, fruits and leaves to fall. It is one of the cold-resistant, late-flowering varieties of walnut.


It is one of the late flowering seedlings in cooler climates in the spring to May season. Roots need a lot of oxygen. Therefore, it is better to grow it in a soil with a high percentage of sand. Because of the sensitivity to anthrax, it should be grown in regions where summers are relatively dry, such as Isfahan and Kashan.
