Mugo pine help

Post  Jake16 on Thu May 30, 2013 12:10 am

So I repotted my mugo in spring, even though I read summer that summer was better, because of emergencey. Now I have already lost a branch and the older needles are turning brown and fallinf off. Is this because of the repot or is the soil to moist (its shohin size so I put a tad more organic in to the soil) or some other reason? Any ideas or advice would be great. I can post Is pic later if needed.

Mugo Pine Help

Been there, done that, same result. Sad
In most areas of the US, for most hobbyists, mugo pine must be repotted in July. (For some experts, spring is OK) Wait and see, but it's probably dead. In my experience, mugo needs to dry out between waterings, but not bone dry.

I lost one last yr. too because I bare rooted it in the spring. I've since learned never to bare root a pine, but keep the orig. soil and replace over the next 4-5 repottings.
