So I recently bought a nice Pinus Sylvestrus that needs re potting.
The chap I bought it from said that he re pots his Pines in September/October in the UK and has had better results than doing it in the Spring, but the roots need to be protected from getting too wet. Other information I see on line seems to indicate Spring. When is the best time?
The best period to repot is spring but it can also be repotted in autumn,however,by cutting fewer roots. As a mix i recommend 40% akadama, 30% pumice, 20% lava rock and 10% little pieces of pine bark to make the ph a little more acidic and to favor the development of michorriza. Good luck
I’ve seen the information that you are referring to and it has spread across the internet in the UK. We were taught by a highly respected person back in the day that August ish was to be considered for an emergency pine re-pot but that spring was best. I’ve stuck to that and has always worked for me over many years. I use 1-1-1.
