Hi everyone…Been doing some late pruning and trimming on my jbp just before our soft winter here in Sydney Australia…Now it s the end of spring…All of my JBP responded well so far…but noticed that one of them started to slow down once the back budding took place…some buds turning weak and yellow to dry out in worse cases…even the strongest shots and candles are weaker and weaker…The new needles are light green and also shorter atm…The alarming sign was the yellow brown coloration and weak growth…can also notice droplet of sap at the base of some of the weak buds and candles too…?
So i stopped the watering to let the soil dry out well in case of root rotting…
Really don’t know if need to treat for underground bugs etc…?
Don t know if I should change the soil as an emergency procedure as the tree is already weak like that?
This pine has been repotted 2 years ago and it s my good mate!
