Repotting Japanese White Pines

(Hannes) #1

Hallo,when is the correct time to repot white pines?Is it when there buds/candles starts to elongate?

It depends on where you live. Generally just before buds start to move in late winter/early spring is the best time to repot.

Based on the movement of the buds it may be getting a bit late, though if it’s a young tree it’s fine to repot now. Feel free to share a pic.

The roots often start growing just ahead of the buds moving which makes it a good time to repot.
