Earlier on in the year (February I believe) I found a pine cone on the path. On the off chance that it might have a viable seed in it I took it home. I recovered just one seed and planted it in a small 4" pot.
Now (28th August) it is still the same size. It doesn't seem to be doing anything, although it appears to be alive.
Is this normal for pines to only grow such a small amount in the first year? Or is there something I can do to encourage more growth?
It's placed in an area where it gets afternoon direct light and indirect shaded light in the morning. I'm in the south of England.
