Hello. I have a jbp that arrived in early summer to PR. When this tree arrived the candles were like 2-3 inches, due to lack of knowledge and the weather change I keep the I did not decandle it this summer and I decides to leave until next year to decandle it.
Now I noticed that the needles from last year at the bottom are drying and probably I will loose them.
Basically the design of this tree is almost done, I don’t need that candle to grow up since the branches are already developed.
If those needles die then my design will be impacted? This needles will grow again?
