Apologies if there is already an answer somewhere for this one.
I have 50 JBP’s that are just starting to show signs of growth since I purchased them bare rooted. I have some experience fertilizing Maples, Elms, and other trees but not pines.
Could anyone please share with me what a normal year of feeding includes? E.g: Liquid or solid, high nitrogen or low nitrogen, when you fertilize etc ( I am in the southern hemisphere) My JPB’s are not being refined for bonsai so I just want to thicken them up
One side question too… These trees are 2 years old roughly (bought from a nursery bare root). I want to wire their trunks now, but I don’t want to stress the trees on their first growing season. How thick of a trunk can I get away with wiring? I would really like the lower trunk to be curved…
Thanks in advance!
