This little shohin has been put into its first pot since it was created from a larger tree that received the chop a few years ago. It has some potential but is still very much a work in progress.
The pot is deliberately oversized to encourage further growth although I won’t feed the tree until later in the season to try and encourage shorter needles on the new bud extensions.
Like all of my white pines the existing growth is a much lighter green than I would like but it has plenty of healthy buds. I am hoping to rectify this problem this year. Suggestions welcome
