Cinnamon is a tree species with deep roots. It should be planted on flat slopes or idle wastelands with good drainage near water sources. The soil is deep, loose, moist and fertile sandy loam is the best.
Cinnamon is generally used for seedling transplantation. After the seeds are mature, they are picked and planted, or mixed with wet sand, but it should not exceed 20 days. If they expire, they will lose their germination ability. Use the drill method, the row spacing is about 15cm, the furrow depth is 3-4cm, sow 1 seed every 3-4cm, cover with soil, water, and cover with hay after sowing. When the seedling height is 10cm, one seedling is reserved for every 6cm. Three years later, when the height of the seedlings is about 1m, choose the rainy days in February to March for planting, and the distance between rows and plants is about 2×3m.
From February to March, the cinnamon seeds can be harvested in batches when the peel is purple-black. The recovered fresh fruit should be washed in a pool to remove the peel and pulp, and then picked up to dry the surface moisture before sowing. The seeds should not be exposed to the sun or stored for a long time. If you buy them in the market, you need to pick fresh, plump and large fruits, wash them immediately after buying them, and dry them in the ground.
During the cinnamon seedling raising period, disease prevention is the main focus. Insecticides and fungicides can be mixed and sprayed every time the foliar fertilizer is sprayed. If anthracnose, brown spot, powdery mildew, etc. appear after transplantation, spray 600 times of gram or 3000 times of Deqing to kill. From December to March of the next year, cinnamon bark, cinnamon branches and osmanthus leaves should be harvested in conjunction with winter and spring, and the cut off diseased and insect branches and fallen branches and leaves should be cleared out of the laurel field, and the garden should be burned and cleared.
